Celebrity Cruises #celebritycruises has incredible entertainment. On our recent cruise to the British Isles, The DM Zone and its host Dianemarie Collins managed to catch up with Solomon Jaye, one of the featured entertainers on board the Celebrity Summit . His nonstop performance included #jamesbrown #sammydavisjr #samcooke #michaeljackson #thetemptations #fourtops and opened with the song “Happy.” Solomon Jaye proved himself to be a consummate entertainer in the style of a Sammy Davis Jr. or a Michael Jackson as he sang and danced his way with panache.
Solomon Jaye taps into “high energy soul” with his unique fusion of original and classic R&B / Soul music, astonishing acrobatics, and his trademarked ElektroTap dancing which brings a classic style of dance into the 21st century.
Jaye is an accomplished singer, songwriter, guitarist, dancer and acrobat. He delivers vocals reminiscent of Marvin Gaye and Bruno Mars with movement that hints of James Brown and Michael Jackson.

“Written by Solomon Jaye, “Monsters” is a smooth-groovin’ duet between Jaye and singer / stage actress, Shoshana Bean. Lyrically similar to a recent hit of a similar name by Eminem and Rihanna, I’m not sure which is the “chicken” or the “egg.” However, Jaye’s is an overall better written and more enjoyable song.” – Christopher Long ~ Showbiz Guru
