For many, the songs of Neil Diamond are like the soundtrack of their lives, and NO ONE sings Neil like Steve Waddington! No one!
He has the same rich, deep tone that captures the dramatic phrasing in the smoother, introspective passages, the authoritative bark and grit in the more passionate, rocking stages, and he interprets and delivers the lyrics with the same drive and the same yearning...the "feel of Neil"!
Steve plays the same type and style of acoustic guitar that identifies each of Neil's songs so well. AND He looks great in a sequined shirt or jacket! He has a look more reminiscent of Neil Diamond in the late 60's-early 70's with the slightly darker, fuller hair style. And he sounds more like the original recordings that we all remember so well from radio and recordings, but he adds a few flourishes and vocal nuances from Neil's live shows. And the band plays all the key riffs and has all the full dynamics and energy of a much larger band!
Steve gets everyone singing along, clapping, laughing, dancing and having fun! It's a fun trip down "memory road"!
A partial song list includes:
