Neil Diamond’s fans will celebrate his 72nd birthday (one day late!) and one of the premiere Neil Diamond Tribute acts is performing a special birthday concert event. VIP Tickets guarantee first five rows seating and a chance to win $100 gift certificate from Tony Starlight’s Supperclub & Lounge

Tony Starlight has performed a monthly Neil Diamond Tribute at his nightclub in NE Portland for over five years. These shows routinely sell out, so in order to meet the increasing demand they performed the show in three larger venues this summer and fall at Alberta Rose Theatre, Old Liberty Theater in Ridgefield, WA and The Venetian Theatre in Hillsboro. This series was such a rousing success that it has lead to more theater booking for Tony’s tribute. The August performance at Alberta Rose Theatre was captured on video: See the video

A recent article in the Oregonian explored the show and the performer who performs Neil with both music and laughter. Read the Oregonian feature.

“Neil Diamond’s music unites people from multiple generations. It speaks to people’s souls. Of all the music that I sing, across multiple genres, nothing gets an audience going like a Neil Diamond song.” – Tony Starlight

The musical director and keyboardist for this group is Bo Ayars, who spent 12 years as musical director for Liberace. He has also led bands for Elvis Pressley and Barbra Streisand, so you can see this show has a fine musical pedigree. The band consists of:

Bo Ayars – keyboard and director
Reece Marshburn – piano
Arick Gouwerok – bass
Sam Foulger – drums
Barbara Ayars – backup vocals
Nick O’Donnell – electric guitar
Tony Starlight – lead vocals and acoustic guitar

    Went to show last fall and had a great time. The food is top notch and will return. The show was well done and enjoyable I recommend that everyone go at least once as the atmosphere is awesome.

    Holy Holy Dream! If I win I’ll sing a song of songs, sing it out, sing it out strong-yeah yeah!
    Cracklin Rosie-you got the way to make me happy if you choose me!
    If I win Good Times would never seem so good. At the concert, My Hands would be Touchin Hands-Reachin Out….
    Sigh, Where it began (being a fan) I can’t begin to know….
    Sweet Caroline- I hope I win!
    Right On!

    Neil Diamond is the greatest songwiriter of this or any other generation…for me it does not get much better than “Forever in Bluejeans”

    Tony Starlight! pick me!

  11. Alan January 24, 2013 at 3:31 pm #

    Heh, it’s my birthday this weekend, and what could be better than taking a friend to see Tony S. playing Cracklin’ Rosie, Turn on Your Heartlight (E.T.!), and…. America (today!)!

    Thanks y’all for 130 weeks of awesome.

    there are two types of people in this world. those who like neil diamond, and those who dont.

  15. Nadine January 24, 2013 at 4:06 pm #

    Neil Diamond is my husband’s absolute FAVE performer – he refers to him as The Living Legend. THIS would be SO perfect for a night out on the town. Please oh please pick me!!!!!

  16. Megan January 24, 2013 at 4:20 pm #

    I love the Jazz Singer. I grew up listening to that and Hot August Nights. If he performs Diamond’s cover of “I Dreamed a Dream”, I will pass out. So that might be fun to watch.

  17. Colleen January 24, 2013 at 4:51 pm #

    I share a birthday with Neil and this would be the perfect “date night” evening with my husband!

  18. Ben January 24, 2013 at 6:17 pm #

    Neil Diamond was one of the first bands I can remember listening to and I live four blocks away from the Alberta.

  19. Carrie January 24, 2013 at 7:45 pm #

    I wan to take my mom on a girls’ night out & she definitely loves her some Neil Diamond! As do I. Jewish Elvis 4 ever!!

  20. Mike January 24, 2013 at 8:30 pm #

    Neil Diamond is a heart throb for my girlfriend. She has never seen him live in Las Vegas or anywhere for that matter. Tony would be the next best thing.

  21. Amy January 24, 2013 at 9:18 pm #

    I’m broke. Show me the love!

  22. Vicki Carrell January 24, 2013 at 10:06 pm #

    It would be fun to take my girlfriend and drive to the one of my favorite places Portland~we grew up with the music of Neil Diamond!

  23. Diamond Head January 24, 2013 at 10:52 pm #

    I would love to win these tickets because I need to publicly come clean and admit that I am a Neil Diamond fan. I mocked those Diamond-heads in the ’70’s (and probably in the ’80’s too because I preferred other genres), but there is no denying that I know the lyrics to those big hits and some of his B side songs too. Attending Tony Starlight’s Birthday Tribute event would allow my oldest friends to mock me ~ and I’m good with that. Let them squabble over who gets to sit up front with me!

  24. Amanda Leigh January 25, 2013 at 9:11 am #

    Alberta Rose is such a lovely venue and Tony Starlight is always a great time. Love me a Neil Diamond tribute and I bet this’ll be the best thing going on in town tonight.

  25. Sarah January 25, 2013 at 1:24 pm #

    Ooh, hoping to make this, looks awesome!
