The Real Diamond is Neil Diamond (rated as one of the top three Neil Diamond tribute act in the UK) and the likeness is uncanny.
He has a chance to show his musicianship as Neil playing some cracking guitar rhythm's on "CHERRY CHERRY" "BEAUTIFUL NOISE""PLAY ME"& "SWEET CAROLINE". He wears the costume and look from the "JAZZ SINGER" which was Neil Diamond at his peak.
He has just performed his Neil Diamond Tribute Show with Stand Up Comedian RUSSELL KANE (See photo) for AVALON TV PRODUCTIONS on BBC RADIO 2 at the GRAND THEATRE in Blackpool (July 2011). He sang SWEET CAROLINE as the grand finale to the show "RUSSELL KANE'S SUMMER TOUR SHOW" which is scheduled to be broadcast in August 2011 (evening transmission).
When The Real Diamond performs his Neil Diamond Tribute the audience are totally captivated and involved in the performance as the tempo goes up and down and the mood changes from romantic ballads to storming classics like "I'm A Believer" and "Cracklin' Rosie ". His magnificent voice re-creates the emotion excitement passion and "spiritual" feel of Diamond's songs.
This Neil Diamond tribute show take's the audience there, involves them hands-clapping and he doesn't let go until a fantastic heart-thumping foot stomping roof-raising finale!
He has taken his tribute to Neil Diamond show to the Highlands of Scotland the DILMUN CLUB -BAHRAIN & The PARADISE CLUB- TENERIFE. The Real Diamond also thrills audiences all around the UK with his superb "double bill" tribute to Neil Diamond and Tom Jones. The transformation from Tom to Neil astounds people with some of the audience convinced it is not the same performer for both acts.
Neil Diamond is one of the worlds greatest and enduring singer/songwriters. He is a songwriter himself (listen to "The Hands of Love" and "Pour Your Love On Me" on the sound files). He wrote these gospel songs and performed them with his band 'After The Fall'. The Real Diamond understands how well Neil has crafted his songs and how they "fit like a glove" when you sing them. He also understands the technique of singing that you have to pour your heart and soul into every performance. He does that and more.
"The best of all the tribute shows we've had at the Dilmun. The Real Diamond had everyone on their feet. The feedback from the club members has been tremendous. His performance as a Tom Jones and Neil Diamond tribute was truly amazing"
- Jill Silverthorne, Dilmun Club Bahrain (Saudi Arabia)
"...........a very convincing look/sound alike tribute act to Neil Diamond" - The STAGE NEWSPAPER
" ......... one of the very best Neil Diamond tributes you will ever see." - Neil Diamond Fan Club (Stafford)
“Something very magical happens…..the audience is the other half of the performance you can’t do it without them, you need them, you need them with you, you want them, they’ve got to be with you or else there’s nothing…… and the most exciting time of all is when it all comes together, when the audience is with you, when the band is cooking, when the night is made for love. Suddenly you’re not just the man on the stage anymore. You’re a man having a love affair with the audience. And most of all, best of all …….you’re not alone anymore.”
- NEIL DIAMOND - GREEK THEATRE 1976
