Curt Didimizio was born and raised in the Philadelphia area of Southeastern Pennsylvania; he served in the United States Army in the early 1980’s and as a Karaoke host in the late 80's and early 90's. Curtis’ true passion was writing, singing and performing. And so the story goes.
Curtis sang and played guitar in a variety of rock & roll bands for 30+ years. At the same time Curt Continued moonlighting as a Karaoke host and of course, singing. The decision to move into performing Neil Diamond songs and the concept of a polished world-class Tribute Show stems from countless requests night after night at the Karaoke bars of patrons who could hear the raspy growl and strong baritone quality in his voice. Before long Curt was singing every Neil Diamond song he had the backing track for…
REAL DIAMOND was born! Curt set out with 27 songs, a 10-piece band, and a vision.

become the premier Neil Diamond tribute show and quite possibly the first
world-class professional show of its kind. 750+ people witnessed the first 2 hour show
Curtis ever performed as Real Diamond
