Experience a diamond in the rough

Diamond in the Rough, serves up a feel good tonic of dance and cheer

Come out July 7 and experience Joey Purpura and his stunning vocal reproduction of Neil Diamond’s major repertoire with uncanny and extraordinary accuracy in his tribute show Diamond In The Rough.

Not only does Joey master the nuances of Diamond’s vocal tones and phrasing (so completely that some audience members have mistakenly believed him to be lip-synching), but his occasional anecdotes describing the background behind Neil’s compositions add to the impact of the performance and his show impresses even the most devoted Neil Diamond fans.

From love ballads to singalongs, from rock classics to pop anthems, Joey’s Neil Diamond Tribute: Diamond in the Rough, serves up a feel good tonic of dance and cheer — celebrating the power, energy and emotion of Diamond’s music to joyous and heartfelt perfection.

Expect to hear Cracklin’ Rosie, Sweet Caroline, America, Love on the Rocks, I’m a Believer and many more Neil Diamond classics.
