denny diamond and the jewels
Thursday, august 1


Emerging from the elite Chicago music scene in Illinois, Award-Winning
Neil Diamond tribute artist Denny Diamond began hitting the ground
running in the music realm in 1999, and since that time has manifested
into one of the most versatile and multifaceted tribute acts to hit the
stage. 

Projecting his own signature stylization to a very familiar sound, Denny
Diamond’s baritone vocal approach and reminiscence of Neil himself has been a grandstanding presence around the country and one of the most sought after acts since he started gracing venues and events nation-wide over the last 20 years.  With Neil Diamond being his core
inspiration, Denny’s musical merit also stems from a vast array of other prominent artist influences that include Tom Jones, Barry Manilow, Willie Nelson, Josh Groban, Dean Martin, Ray Charles and Jim Croce. Denny also won an award with The Akademia for Best Cover/Folk Song in 2016 for the song “Diamond Mountain”.
