Artists can be dime-a-dozen, but there is only one Denny Diamond.

Emerging from the elite Chicago music scene in Illinois, Award-Winning Neil Diamond tribute artist Denny Diamond began hitting the ground running in the music realm in 1999, and since that time has manifested into one of the most versatile and multifaceted tribute acts to hit the stage.

Projecting his own signature stylization to a very familiar sound, Denny Diamond’s baritone vocal approach and reminiscence of Neil himself has been a grandstanding presence around the country and one of the most sought after acts since he started gracing venues & events nation-wide over the last 20 years. Comprised as a one-man show, he performed an exceptional high-attendance 89-city US Tour, “Neil Diamond Story”, in 2015 and 2016, and garnered critical acclaim and positive reception throughout every city the tour was booked.

With Neil Diamond being his core inspiration, Denny’s musical merit also stems from a vast array of other prominent artist influences that include Tom Jones, Barry Manilow, Willie Nelson, Josh Groban, Dean Martin, Ray Charles and Jim Croce.

"Denny Svehla brings natural warmth to your heart and a new breath of life to Neil Diamond's music. Denny as Neil Diamond sound like Americana: Warm, comforting - just what you expect! Captivating! Energetic! Charismatic! A guaranteed crowd pleaser and a sold out show"

- Woodstock Opera House
Woodstock, IL.

"Full of comedic banter and honest moments, Denny performed with his two sons, Lucas and Spenser, who reminded the audience of their own talent as well. Complete with a setlist written on a pizza box and Spenser playing drums and bass simultaneously, the group played an incredible hour of what Denny called "feel good" music, celebrating the man who brought the world hits such as "Sweet Caroline" and "Coming to America."

"Denny’s last performance at Metropolis was one of the hottest invitation-only events we’ve ever seen, but now is your chance to sing ”Sweet Caroline” as loud as you can. One night only!"

-Northwest Chicago Convention Bureau

"Amazing! Your performance was so much more than I expected. I had no idea that Neil Diamond had so many songs and the way you performed them would make you think you wrote them yourself."

-Barbara M.
Skokie, Illinois

"Your performance was so entertaining and you made me feel so comfortable. I felt like I was in your home. The way you presented Neil Diamond's music was unique. I expected someone who was trying to be him but was extremely satisfied with how knowledgeable you were with the music. More like Neil Diamond would be with his own music. The interpretation and stories about the songs were fascinating. I would come to see this show several times"

-Linda L.
The Villages, Florida

"But I'd much rather have people, if they like the songs, interpret them in a way that's unique to themselves and to their own talent than to try to copy something that I've done in the past. That's a general piece of advice that I give to people anyway...

"That's my main criticism. I wish they would, if they like the songs, find their way of doing it and do it that way. As far as those bands, generally, great. Thank you very much. I'm flattered, but for your own good, you should be doing your own thing." - Neil Diamond
