CANTON, Michigan (January 13, 2014) — Neil Diamond impersonator Brian La Blanc and SIMPLY DIAMOND will be performing on Jan. 18, 2014 at The Village Theater at Cherry Hill as part of a charity event aimed at benefiting the arts and local community of Canton Michigan.
All proceeds from the concert go to The Partnership for the Arts, as well as the Westland Community Foundation and the local Chamber of Commerce. SIMPLY DIAMOND has built a reputation for being the closest thing an audience can get to the legendary performer without actually going to a show and has been thrilling audiences with each stop of their ongoing tour.
Said bandleader Paul Shaffer, “I’ve seen four of the biggest Neil Diamond tribute acts, and this guy blows them all away.”
There will be two shows, one at 2:00pm, and one in the evening. For the January 18 Neil Diamond tribute performance at 6:30pm, the audience will get a little something extra. The show features a strolling dinner and reception with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres beginning at 6:30 in the evening, followed by a performance at 8:00. For the dinner, a variety of local establishments have stepped up to provide mouth-watering local cuisine that will be sure to satisfy the taste buds. Participating eateries include The Sardine Room, Antonio’s Italian Cucina, and Hayden’s Grill. Concert goers who show their ticket stub before or immediately following the event will be given a 20% discount on their order from 502 Grill. In addition to this, valets will be on hand to provide complimentary service for anyone who needs help parking their vehicles. Ticket prices and more information are available at http://www.canton-mi.org/villagetheater/performance_glance.aspx.
