If you're only a fan of weepy Diamond dandies like Hello and Heartlight, stay home. This is not your mom and dad's Neil Diamond show, where they could wear a new pair of Hush Puppies with no worries of getting a scuff. Think of a Super Diamond show as a fun-loving, somewhat raucous white-bread fraternity party for the 25-to-39 set.

The master of ceremonies is, of course, Super Diamond's lead singer, Randy Cordero, aka; Surreal Neil Cordero, who sounds more like Mr. Diamond than he looks like him, and compensates by outfitting himself and the band in vintage Diamond-style sequins, bell bottoms and platform shoes. He has described the band's concerts as Neil Diamond on steroids, and the group sticks to the pre-'82 Diamond tunes that lend themselves to dancing, drinking, and singing.

Given the band member's musical influences (Rush, Scorpions, Van Halen), they mischievously infuse the occasional Diamond song with 10- to 15-second riffs of such tunes as ;Tom Sawyer, &Rock You Like a Hurricane; and;Runnin; With the Devil.; For 30-something Diamond fans who cling to those songs with as much passion as their high school lettermen's jackets, Super Diamond will hit your sweet spot.
