The Courier

If you are a Neil Diamond fan you won’t want to miss “Diamond Forever a Celebration of Neil Diamond” at Cold Lake Royal Canadian Legion on Saturday, Sept. 7.

The show is presented by Jason Scott, a one-man award winner, performing at the Legion as a fundraiser in support of Canadian Armed Forces veterans.

It’s at the upper hall at the Legion at 1007 7th Ave. in Cold Lake. Get your tickets at the Legion. Doors open at 5:30 with the show at 7 p.m. A lunch fare menu is available for order.

The show is a recognition of the music and talent of legendary singer-songwriter Neil Diamond. Promoters say the show delivers the look, sound and excitement of the music of Diamond whose hits span 60 years.

Scott, creator and performance artist for the show, says Neil Diamond has recorded his music so many times and changed it so much, that interpreting that music can be an art.

Scott’s musical resume is impressive. He began attending a conservatory of music in Toronto at the age of five, achieving first degree honours and graduation by age 15. In his twenties, Scott toured extensively with nightclub and concert bands and in his thirties he was a Canadian record label signed recording artist, writer and performer. Based in British Columbia, Scott has frequently performed in Las Vegas.

“The (Neil Diamond) music bridges generations,” says Scott. “The show is structured, spontaneous, loose and huge fun as its very audience connected. At times I find myself in the crowd and other times I’ve found the audience on stage with me.”
