SUPER DIAMOND HITS THE BIG TIME
My friend Randy Cordeiro and his 15-year old band "Super Diamond" perform this Thursday night on the "Late Show with David Letterman" on CBS Television. "Super Diamond",a San Francisco-based Neil Diamond tribute band, will be Letterman's musical guest on November 20th. They'll perform one song, as part of Letterman's week long tribute to legendary bands and artists. Also this week, Purple Reign does Prince, The Cold Hard Cash tributes Johnny Cash, Mr. Brownstone is a Guns N' Roses tribute band and the Allstarz mimic James Brown.
Randy and the gang usually get to New York City a few times a year. They normally sell out their two night stands at Irving Plaza. Whether you like Neil Diamond or not, you'll love "Super Diamond." The band rocks out the traditional Diamond tunes and they put on a visually exciting stage show. Just as fun is watching the crowd, generally in their 20's and 30's, gyrating on the dance floor. Some of the women swoon for the Diamond sound-alike by tossing flowers or sometimes even more intimate items on stage.
Congratulations, Randy on the big T.V gig.
