Neil DiamondPerformed by Will Mastromanno
As a singer songwriter and guitarist, Will Mastro was drawn to Neil Diamond and his legacy of worldwide hits, and influenced to perform the early years of a younger Neil Diamond paying homage to the Diamond Legacy.
Will has enthralled audiences of all ages & Diamond fans in Australia & abroad with a show performance reminiscent of the legendary 1972 concert album, Hot August Night, recorded live at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. Bringing us back to the fabulous 1970’s tours that give rise to Neil Diamond’s superstar status & ongoing popularity of world wide hit songs.
Will has perfectly recaptured the sound, songs, look & feel of the era from the nostalgic 70’s, in Denim jump suit, bell- bottoms, & platform shoes, to the early 80’s Jazz Singer.
Will loves this era & enjoys giving his best of the early performances for those who have forgotten what Neil Diamond looked like yesteryear or have not yet discovered Neil’s early days. Will Mastro brings forward the talent, magnitude, charisma and appeal that transformed the early Neil Diamond from singer songwriter to a popular Star.
