  • Bandstand Boogie with the Diamonds

    Date: Wednesday, May 8th, 2019 - 7:00 PM

    The fabulous foursome of 50’s and 60’s popularity, THE DIAMONDS, will be coming to Cortez Wednesday, May 8, 2019, 7:00 p.m., at the Montezuma-Cortez High School Auditorium as a part of the current series of concerts presented by SouthWest Colorado Concerts. Readers will remember THE DIAMONDS as a 50’s sensation with their top hit-tune “Lil Darlin.”

    THE DIAMONDS are a Canadian vocal quartet that rose to prominence with 16 Billboard Hit Records back in the day, and they have continued to perform through the years with gradual changes in personnel currently including Jerry Siggins, lead, Gary Owens, baritone, Sean Sooter, tenor, and Jeff Dolan, bass.

    The Diamond’s biggest hit, besides “Lil Darlin” was “The Stroll.” They won 1 st place on Arthur Godfrey’s “Talent Scouts” with the prize being guest artist for a week on Godfrey’s daily radio show, which then led to their first recording contract with Coral Records. TV performances included shows with Steve Allen, Perry Como, Vic Damone, Tony Bennett and American Bandstand.

    The Diamonds were most noted for interpreting and introducing rhythm and blues vocal music to the wider pop music audience. With their 16 hit records, their Doo-Wop Hall of Fame, their Vocal Group Hall of Fame, their 20 million records sold and their soundtrack “American Graffiti,” The Diamonds are the perfect entertainment choice for audiences ranging from formal settings, like their appearance here, to the casual atmosphere of an outdoor stage at a fair or festival. They combine their great vocal harmony and musical instrument talents to provide an unforgettable, first class entertainment for our audience!
