Super Diamond has transcended the label of “tribute band” and become one of the most popular live shows at major nightclubs. They have passionately immersed themselves in Neil Diamond’s huge repertoire and deliver a high-octane show of unforgettable classics such as “Sweet Caroline,” “Forever in Blue Jeans” and many others
For more than a decade the band has consistently performed sell-out shows at venues such as Irving Plaza in New York, 930 Club in Washington D.C., Bimbo’s in San Francisco and House of Blues venues in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Diego, Cleveland and Dallas to name but a few.
Super Diamond front man Randy Cordero, aka “The Surreal Neil, astonishes audiences with his live interpretation of the real Neil. Cordero 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. Cordero formed Super Diamond with founding members Matt Tidmarsh (bass guitar), Rama Kolesnikow (keyboards) and his childhood friend James Terris (keyboards). The group soon attracted the stellar talents of Chris Collins (guitar) and Vince Littleton (drums).
Super Diamond’s dream came true when Neil Diamond joined them on stage for a surprise appearance at the House of Blues in Hollywood. 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 performs at 9 p.m. Saturday in the Celebrity Showroom at John Ascuaga’s Nugget. Tickets cost $20 and are available by calling 800-648-1177 or 356-3300 or by visiting janugget.com.
