RCCA presents The Diamonds in concert

The Diamonds will perform in concert Saturday, May 7 in Keppel Auditorium.
Presented by the Rowan County Concert Association, the group made 33 appearances on American Bandstand, had 16 hit records and are members of the Doo-Wop Hall of Fame. They have sold 20 million records and are on the soundtrack of “American Graffiti.”
In this concert, The Diamonds will perform not only their hits from the 1950s and 1960s but also pay tribute to the classic four-part vocal groups of the era: The Four Lads, The Four Aces, The Four Freshmen, The Four Preps, The Brothers Four and The Four Seasons. They honor some of the greatest solo artists in rock ‘n roll history, including Bobby Darin, Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley.
The Diamonds are made up of lead singer Jerry Siggins, Bobby Poynton, Bill New and Gary Owens, who has been with the group for almost 28 years.
“The Diamonds are four distinctive individuals with one strong group personality,” Owens says. “The four of us as a unit have a special chemistry, and it is that chemistry that gives us our unique identity.”
The guys are also instrumentalists, playing saxophone, trumpet and trombone, accompanied by a drummer and pianist.
Audiences will likely hear, among others, “Little Darlin’,” “The Stroll,” “Silhouettes,” “We’re Still Rockin,’” and “Why Do Fools Fall in Love?”

Adult tickets are $20; tickets for students, 18 and under, are $5. Tickets are available at the Rowan Visitor Center, Belk in Salisbury Mall, Literary BookPost, Frost Bites and the Keppel Box Office one hour prior to the show.
Concert sponsors are First Bank and WSAT Memories 1280.
