Diamond shines on Drumheller Legion
Jason Scott is one performer who shines bright like a diamond.
The entertainer is coming back to Drumheller with his show called “Diamond Forever, a Celebration of Neil Diamond.” It pays tribute to one of the biggest stars in music.
“Neil Diamond has recorded his music so many times, and changed it so much, that interpreting that music can in itself be an art,” said 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.”
Scott is an accomplished artist in his own right and was long before he began his tribute performances. But his portrayal of Neil Diamond has won him accolades and awards. He was the first Canadian Performer to win the Be a Legend “Celebrity Tribute Artist” competition in 2015 in Las Vegas. He was awarded the Sunburst Convention of Celebrity Tribute Artists “Best Platinum Showcase Award” in 2010.
“Diamond Forever a Celebration of Neil Diamond” is described as an exciting, must-see show, enhanced by background stories, humour, authentic costuming, studio recorded audio tracks and incredibly realistic “spot on” vocals.
For going on 15 years, Jason has been supporting and working “exclusively” with the Royal Canadian Legions of Canada, producing sold out “Diamond Forever” performances to exhilarated members and public audiences in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. Plans are in the works to expand the tour schedule into Ontario and further east to the Maritime Provinces.
He says it has been a great opportunity to work with Legions.
“A lot of people don’t realize that Royal Canadian Legions are non profit organizations, they have to find a way to support themselves. What they are giving back is support to veterans and also support to their communities and their projects and endeavours,” he said. “When I come in, I shine a light on the Legions with this crazy Neil Diamond party and at the end of the show I talk about it…by supporting the RCL they are supporting themselves.”
“Diamond Forever a Celebration of Neil Diamond” is coming to the Drumheller Royal Canadian Legion, on November 3.
Jason Scott will be performing his spot in tribute to Neil Diamond in Diamond Forever at the Drumheller Legion on Saturday, November 3.
