“Wonderful job, sounds more like Neil Diamond than Neil Diamond. [He reacts] with the crowd in a beautiful way… well worth it.”

Eric "Diamond" Ebert has been performing his Tribute to Neil Diamond since 2002 and has been Wisconsin's Favorite Neil Diamond Tribute Artist since 2009. He has
been told on countless occasions that he "sounds more like Neil than Neil Diamond does". Primarily focusing his solo shows around his home base of southeastern
Wisconsin, for the last eight years Eric has toured the casinos, theaters and festivals of the Midwest as a headliner with the Ultimate Legends show.
In the beginning, Eric worked with several other entertainers and Tribute Artists as part of a duo (most notably Forever in Blue Suede, Diamonds & Martinis and
Diamonds & Dreams) to provide an energetic evening filled with variety, good music and great times. Eventually going solo and taking his one-man "Neil & Nostalgia"
show on the road, Eric has been wowing crowds not only with his spot-on vocal performance of Neil Diamond's biggest hits, but also with his tributes to artists like
Johnny Cash, John Cougar Mellencamp and the nostalgic "one-hit wonders" of the 60s and 70s.
Over the last several years, Eric has been showcased on WITI Fox 6's Wake Up and Real Milwaukee shows, as well as CBS 58 Sunday Morning's "Diamond in the
Rough" feature story.
