The Neil Diamond Experience
Saturday, February 28th
Super Diamond front man The Surreal Neil, Randy Cordeiro, astonishes audiences with his live interpretation of the “real Neil.” Randy created the charismatic character when he discovered he had the uncanny ability to capture not only Neil Diamond’s voice, but also his mannerisms and performance style. Super Diamond has caught the attention of major media publications such as Rolling Stone Magazine, Spin Magazine, New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Washington Post and LA Times. The band has been featured on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, Comedy Central and interviewed for VH1’s Behind the Music-Neil Diamond Episode. In November 2008 Super Diamond was seen by millions when they were the musical guests on The Late Show with David Letterman. Super Diamond’s dream came true when Neil Diamond joined them on stage for a surprise appearance at the House of Blues in Hollywood. A moment of endorsement that swelled the band members’ hearts and stunned the audience that night. Neil Diamond also praised the band when questioned about the success of Super Diamond by Katie Couric and Larry King on national television. Super Diamond was fortunate to be joined on stage by Neil Diamond a second time, at the premiere party for the movie Saving Silverman and has been delighted over the years to bring on stage current and former members of Neil Diamond’s touring band. Super Diamond delivers a glittering, smoke-filled show performing Neil’s power ballads and up-tempo hits with unrestrained enthusiasm. The show is pure entertainment – classic music combined with fun, energy and passion – creating nostalgia for the good old days and excitement for today’s generation.
