It’s a cel­e­bra­tion of Neil Di­a­mond, Satur­day June 10 at the Drumheller Le­gion.

From Tin Pan Al­ley to Hol­ly­wood, through the tur­bu­lence of the 1960’s and on into the 21st cen­tury, the songs of Neil Di­a­mond con­tinue to at­tract new fans to go along with the le­gions of old.

A show such as Ja­son Scott’s “Di­a­mond For­ever a Cel­e­bra­tion of Neil Di­a­mond” is an ex­tremely en­ter­tain­ing recog­ni­tion to the mu­sic and tal­ent of this leg­endary singer­song­writer.

“Neil Di­a­mond has recorded his mu­sic so many times, and changed it so much, that in­ter­pret­ing that mu­sic can in it­self be an art.” Says Ja­son Scott, cre­ator and per­for­mance artist for the one man live stage ex­trav­a­ganza. “When you look at Neil Di­a­mond’s his­tory and ca­reer of six decades, you re­al­ize the mu­sic and the pos­si­bil­i­ties of that mu­sic are un­lim­ited.”

The process of in­ter­pret­ing Neil Di­a­mond’s har­mo­nious com­bi­na­tion of notes is not dis­sim­i­lar to a sym­phony con­duc­tor in­ter­pret­ing the mu­sic of Beethoven from a score.

Ja­son Scott’s “Di­a­mond For­ever a Cel­e­bra­tion of Neil Di­a­mond” is an ex­cit­ing, must­see evening’s en­ter­tain­ment event! En­hanced by back­ground sto­ries, hu­mor, au­then­tic cos­tum­ing, stu­dio recorded au­dio tracks and in­cred­i­bly re­al­is­tic “spot on” vo­cals, this highly au­di­ence in­ter­ac­tive show cre­ates a sight and sound ex­pe­ri­ence that trans­ports de­lighted Neil Di­a­mond fans, old and young, down mem­ory lane.

“The mu­sic bridge’s gen­er­a­tions”, say’s Scott, “The show is struc­tured but also spon­ta­neous, loose and huge fun as it’s very au­di­ence con­nected. Some­times I find my­self in the crowd and then other times I’ve found some of the au­di­ence on stage with me. The show is one big “Neil Di­a­mond” Party!”

Such an ex­pe­ri­ence is Ja­son Scott’s “Di­a­mond For­ever a Cel­e­bra­tion of Neil Di­a­mond” com­ing Satur­day June 10 , 2017 to the Drumheller Royal Cana­dian Le­gion. Show­time is 7:00 PM. For in­for­ma­tion call the Drumheller Royal Cana­dian Le­gion at 403-823-5611. Mem­bers & Public Wel­come.
