Super Diamond front man The Surreal Neil, Randy Cordeiro, astonishesaudiences with his live interpretation of the "real Neil." Randy created thecharismatic character when he discovered he had the uncanny ability tocapture not only Neil Diamond's voice, but also his mannerisms andperformance style. Randy formed Super Diamond with founding membersMatt Tidmarsh (bass guitar), Rama Kolesnikow (keyboards), and hischildhood friend James Terris (keyboards) and soon after attracted thestellar talents of Chris Collins (guitar) and Vince Littleton (drums). With adedication to performing a dazzling, rockin' show and a reputation as oneof the best live bands in the country, Super Diamond continuously drawsfull-capacity crowds and has a loyal, dedicated and ever-expanding fanbase that bridges generations.
