San Francisco’s SUPER DIAMOND is unquestionably one of the most popular live shows at major nightclubs, theaters, ballrooms, and public events throughout the United States. For over a decade the band has consistently performed sold-out shows at venues such as Irving Plaza in New York, 930 Club in Washington, D.C., The House of Blues in Chicago, Bimbo’s in San Francisco, The Belly Up in San Diego and Aspen, Ogden Theater in Denver, Crystal Ballroom in Portland, Showbox in Seattle, and other House of Blues venues in Los Angeles, San Diego, Cleveland, and Dallas, to name but a few.
At these venues Super Diamond has generated an exuberant audience response previously unheard of for a tribute band. Many would say that Super Diamond have long since transcended the label of “tribute band” by passionately immersing themselves in Neil Diamond’s huge repertoire and delivering a high-octane show of unforgettable classics such as “Holly Holy,” “Sweet Caroline,” “Forever in Blue Jeans,” and many others.
Super Diamond has also performed at landmark venues and events such as the Hollywood Bowl, Taste of Chicago, Fenway Park in Boston, Coors Field in Denver, and numerous fairs, festivals, and corporate celebrations across the country and overseas.
Super Diamond front man, “The Surreal Neil” Randy Cordeiro, astonishes audiences with his live interpretation of the “real Neil.” Randy created the charismatic character when he discovered he had the ability to capture not only Neil Diamond’s voice, but also his mannerisms and performance style. Randy formed Super Diamond with founding members Matt Tidmarsh (bass), Rama Kolesnikow (keyboards), and his childhood friend James Terris (keyboards), and soon after attracted the stellar talents of guitarist Erik Schramm and drummer Vince Littleton.
Super Diamond’s dream came true when Neil Diamond joined them on stage for a surprise appearance at the House of Blues in Hollywood. It was a moment of endorsement that swelled the band members’ hearts and stunned the audience that night. Neil Diamond also had thoroughly encouraging and positive things to say about the band when questioned about the success of Super Diamond by Katie Couric and Larry King on national television. Super Diamond was fortunate to again be joined on stage by Neil Diamond at the premiere party for the movie Saving Silverman and have been delighted over the years to bring on stage current and former members of Neil Diamond’s touring band.
Super Diamond delivers a glittering, smoke-filled show performing Neil’s power ballads and up-tempo hits with unrestrained enthusiasm. Incorporated into Super Diamond’s “Alternative Neil Diamond Experience” show are the band’s own unique arrangements, mash-ups, and references to classic rock songs. The show is pure entertainment – classic music combined with fun, energy, and passion – creating nostalgia for the good old days and excitement for today’s generation.
