The Band

 
Greg Diamond as Neil Diamond.  Greg is an accomplished musician and singer and has been entertaining audiences for over 20 years performing on stages both nationally and internationally including Europe, Central America, and the Caribbean.  His experiences include Resorts, Cruise Ships, Casinos, Public and Corporate events.  Greg says his mom, a huge Neil Diamond fan, was the inspiration for the show.  "I pass everything by her for her "Diamond" stamp of approval." Much like Neil Diamond, Greg has a thing for attention to detail.  He's got his hands in everything from stage design, lighting, musical arrangements, web design, t-shirts, you name it.  "I am lucky to be surrounded by such a great team of people; musicians, crew, and fans.  They are all great and inspire me to keep pushing the envelope to make a better and better show.  I thank you all."
