* The Diamonds.

Jeff Eats recently received the following email…

I know that you know your Rock N Roll business.
Our community just announced that The Diamonds will be appearing in mid-2015 in our theater.
Please take a look at the provided website. The group members sure don’t look or for that matter sound like the group I danced the stroll to as a kid.
Your thoughts.


The Diamonds are a legendary 1950’s-60’s group with mega hits such as The Stroll and Little Darlin’.

Let’s leave it at this…

The current members didn’t sing on any of the hit recordings. The current members never appeared on American Bandstand. The current members aren’t members of the Doo Wop Hall of Fame. The current members aren’t members of the Vocal Group Hall of Fame. The current members aren’t on the American Graffiti soundtrack. That said, based on videos that I’ve seen, the current members put on an extremely entertaining show-but so does Jeff Eats’ dog-Jiggy Eats, but Jiggy doesn’t claim to be Lassie and I don’t claim to be Jeff Miller or for that matter Timmy Martin.

One final point, you should know that copyrights, trademarks and other legal mumbo jumbo- make today’s -The Diamonds -perfectly legitimate.

Hope the above helps you out…

    Great reply.
    By the way as I’m sure you know the original lead singer David Somerville is still out there performing.

  3. ZANDERMAN says...

    The new group are the Diamonds like I’m the Diamonds.

  4. KLEINMAN says...

    You know your stuff.
    I have seen The Diamonds’ show and loved it.
    Most people don’t appreciate that they really weren’t the originals, but neither are The Duprees and The Grass Roots who also are fabulous in concert.

    My wife and I recently saw The Diamonds who put on a fabulous show. We know they aren’t the group that had the hit records. Since original lead singer Somerville is no longer with us these guys will have to do.

  6. Johnny K says...

    I’ve seen the show and the group is terrific.

    Let’s treat them like The New York Yankees, an updated version.

    Saw them last night at Kings Point in Delray Beach and they put on a great show.

  8. Joel G says...

    Loved their show last night at Kings Point.

    My wife and I saw The Diamonds at Kings Point and they were very entertaining. We enjoyed the show, but to be honest with a bit too rehearsed, if you understand what I mean?
