Regarding NEARLY NEIL and THE SOLITARY BAND, Danny Gaisin of the Halton Arts Review stated, “He uncannily duplicates the voice. He captures the very essence of his subject, and most of all, he replicates the contagious and infectious charisma that occurred between Diamond and his audiences”. Hellen Barry of Australian Stage Online continues, “Of course, there’s that voice. That throaty, husky, whispering purr; it’s uncanny. He has the swagger, the laidback charisma, the sheer essence of Diamond”. You must see this incredible show others have called a “dynamic and passionate tribute” with “depth, style and sophistication” that is “maybe even better than the real” thing!
