Michael’s solo act is normally around 1 hour, however this can be adjusted to suit your event, up to 1.5 hours in 2 x 45 minute sets.
His professional PA set up is completely self-contained and can be adjusted to suit any size of venue, large or small.
Michael is based in Windsor, Berkshire however he is happy to travel.
Expect to hear all the biggest hits including America, Beautiful Noise, Cherry Cherry, Love on the Rocks, Forever Blue Jeans, Song Sung Blue and of course, Sweet Caroline.
Michael’s motivation behind his Neil Diamond tribute act has always been to faithfully replicate the sound, performance and feel of the music and to entertain. Although he does charge for his performances you will be pleasantly surprised at his modest rates.
From time to time our very own Helen Poole (as Barbra Streisand!) has been known to take a break from sound engineering during the act to perform with Michael for the beautiful duet: ‘You Don’t Bring me Flowers’.
Music has been a part of Michael's life for as long as he can remember. He grew up listening to his dad play in pubs in and around London. Michael picked up his first guitar at the age of 16, and thereafter honed his own talent, both vocally and as a guitarist over the last 26 years.
Michael served five years in the Royal Navy in his early twenties, where he would regularly entertain sailors in the mess. It was during this time that his love for Neil Diamond began. Neil was a favourite with the shipmates, and indeed, the song "America" was played on the ship's loud speakers while entering New York in 2001!
Michael is now using all his experience and talent to perform his 'all new' Neil Diamond tribute act.
