Neil Diamond (Tribute)
Tribute to Neil Diamond featuring Tom Sadge
Widely regarded as the #1 Neil Diamond impersonator, Tom Sadge has entertained thousands at corporate functions, conventions, cruise ships and charitable events. He has also performed aboard Carnival Cruise Line's Legend and Pride ships as well as on river and show boats. Tom has appeared at outdoor concerts up and down the East Coast and West Coast and during halftime shows at the invitation of professional and semi-pro sports teams such as the Philadelphia Eagles, Phoenix Suns and Arizona Rattlers. His live audiences have numbered as many as 68,000 (Philadelphia's Veterans' Stadium), and conversely he has entertained at backyard BBQs for 12.
Since his first appearance as Neil Diamond 15 years ago, Tom has traveled far and wide throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe and has appeared at many major venues. His lookalike and soundalike tribute to "The Jazz Singer" is a favorite of the most discriminating Neil Diamond fans. Tom has been a featured entertainer at top casinos: Atlantic City, NJ, Laughlin and Las Vegas, NV, and Phoenix-Scottsdale, AZ as well as a major headliner at corporate events, festivals and "Legends" shows.
As an opening act, Tom has worked with and opened for national stars such as comedian Jackie Mason, Kool and the Gang, The Guess Who (featuring Burton Cummings), and the legendary Engelbert Humperdinck, as well as other notable entertainers.
Tom Sadge has met Neil Diamond on several occasions and has gotten to know some of Neil's longtime band members. As a longtime Neil Diamond fan as well as tribute artist, Tom Sadge was very honored when, during a 2002 concert in Pittsburgh PA, Neil leaned over the stage and, pointing to Tom, told the crowd of several thousand "This guy sounds just like me!"
