About Super Diamond
"I've met them and I have been to their shows, they're wonderful!"
Neil Diamond to Katie Couric on the Today Show, November 9, 2005
"Q. Super Diamond honors him..."
"A. Who is Neil Diamond?"
Question on Jeopardy, May 20th, 2005
San Francisco's Super Diamond has become one of the most popular live shows at major nightclubs, theaters, ballrooms and public events throughout the United States. For over a decade the band has consistently performed sell-out shows at venues such as Irving Plaza in New York, 930 Club in Washington D.C., Bimbo's in San Francisco, and House of Blues venues in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Diego, Cleveland and Dallas to name but a few.
At these venues Super Diamond has generated an exuberant audience response previously unheard of for a tribute band. Many would say that Super Diamond has transcended the label of "tribute band" by passionately immersing themselves in Neil Diamond's huge repertoire and delivering a high-octane show of unforgettable classics such as Cracklin' Rosie, Sweet Caroline, Forever in Blue Jeans and many others.
Super Diamond has also performed at landmark venues and events such as Hollywood Bowl, Taste of Chicago, Fenway Park in Boston, Coors Field in Denver and numerous fairs, festivals and corporate celebrations across the country and overseas.
Super Diamond front man The Surreal Neil, Randy Cordeiro, astonishes audiences with his live interpretation of the "real Neil." Randy created the charismatic character when he discovered he had the uncanny ability to capture not only Neil Diamond's voice, but also his mannerisms and performance style. Randy formed Super Diamond with founding members Matt Tidmarsh (bass guitar), Rama Kolesnikow (keyboards), and his childhood friend James Terris (keyboards) and soon after attracted the stellar talents of Chris Collins (guitar) and Vince Littleton (drums). With a dedication to performing a dazzling, rockin' show and a reputation as one of the best live bands in the country, Super Diamond continuously draws full-capacity crowds and has a loyal, dedicated and ever-expanding fan base that bridges generations.
Super Diamond has caught the attention of major media publications such as Rolling Stone Magazine, Spin Magazine, New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Washington Post and LA Times. The band has been featured on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, Comedy Central and interviewed for VH1's Behind the Music-Neil Diamond Episode. In November 2008 Super Diamond was seen by millions when they were the musical guests on The Late Show with David Letterman.
Super Diamond's dream came true when Neil Diamond joined them on stage for a surprise appearance at the House of Blues in Hollywood. A moment of endorsement that swelled the band members' hearts and stunned the audience that night. Neil Diamond also praised the band when questioned about the success of Super Diamond by Katie Couric and Larry King on national television. Super Diamond was fortunate to be joined on stage by Neil Diamond a second time, at the premiere party for the movie Saving Silverman and has been delighted over the years to bring on stage current and former members of Neil Diamond's touring band.
Super Diamond delivers a glittering, smoke-filled show performing Neil's power ballads and up-tempo hits with unrestrained enthusiasm. The show is pure entertainment - classic music combined with fun, energy and passion - creating nostalgia for the good old days and excitement for today's generation.
About Under A Blood Red Sky
Under a Blood Red Sky is an acclaimed U2 tribute band that passionately recreates authentic U2 concerts. Covering the War tour in 1983 to present day, each show has amazed fans with their ability to recreate famous U2 shows and has solidified their reputation for sold out venues - including the world-famous Red Rocks!
Billy Bunting had been a rabid U2 fan since he saw the band in New Haven, CT in 1981. Billy never forgot Bono climbing up to the balcony of this old theatre singing at the top of his lungs and thought, “I want to do that!” From that point forward, Billy immersed himself in U2 music and that event helped shape Billy as a singer. After 20+ years as professional musicians, Billy and Jerry Bousquet returned to their roots and formed UABRS. UABRS got its start by recreating the legendary 1983 "Live at Red Rocks" concert on New Year's Eve 2005 at a sold out show at the Paramount Theater in Denver, CO. It went over huge!!! The fans were taken back to that foggy June 5th evening and ended the night by singing the refrain from "40" as the band left the stage. It was EXACTLY like Red Rocks and Billy “Bono”, Ted “The Tedge”, Todd “Adam” and Jerry “Larry” have never looked back – providing fans the best U2 experience this side of Dublin!!
Not only does UABRS play and sound like U2, their amazing attention to detail creates a visual experience that the most ardent U2 fan would recognize. UABRS makes every effort to replicate wardrobe, stage props, video/audio choreography, instruments and equipment from many famous U2 concerts around the world.
UABRS is the ONLY U2 tribute band to ever play Red Rocks amphitheater. Fans reminisced at the sold-out venue as the band recreated the ultimate U2 experience not seen or heard since June 1983. The music of U2 echoed off the walls of Red Rocks with over 9,000 fans chanting the lyrics of great U2 songs such as With or Without You, Pride (In the Name of Love), and Sunday Bloody Sunday.
Come out and sing along with them... feel the power of one of the greatest bands of our time!!!
