The Diamond Collection is an eight piece tribute band dedicated to carefully recreating the songs and sounds of Neil Diamond. Formed in Western Massachusetts in 2000, the band has garnered solemn recognition by a growing fan base and loyal contingency of “Diamondheads” who have applauded performances throughout New England and beyond.
Fronted by accomplished Musician, Kenny LaBelle, The Diamond Collection boasts a lineup of skilled musicians devoted to maintaining accuracy and authenticity with every note they play. LaBelle’s “dead on” vocals and energetic stage show ensure every performance exceeds the expectations of all in attendance-young or old.
On several occasions, the band has been honored to be joined onstage by King Errisson, a touring member of The Neil Diamond Band for over 30 years! King’s percussive talents and radiant smile can be seen and heard on live DVD’s released by The Diamond Collection in 2010 and 2011. His encouragement and friendship remain as important to the band as his generous endorsement.
Spanning five decades of Diamond’s hall of fame career, the band’s list of songs reveals the singer’s most popular hits and some lesser known gems. To ensure its vitality, the band annually prepares a new show comprised of obscure renditions, lost tracks, and familiar staples. A humble salute to an American icon, The Diamond Collection is as honest a tribute to the man from Brooklyn as is performing today.
