Songs and stories of Neil Diamond performed by Jack Wright is a sophisticated, authentic performance of the hit songs that have kept Neil Diamond in the hearts of his fans for more than five decades. Jack Wright captures Neil’s poetic expressions of wide-ranging emotions and the eclectic mix of his varied musical styles. His natural voice and stage presence are pure Neil – no posturing or over-the-top-mimicry.
And it goes beyond the music with the sharing of stories about Neil’s life and explanations of his sometimes complex and complicated lyrics. He interprets the songs the way Neil must have felt when he wrote them, and he connects with his audiences the way Neil always has, while making the songs his own.
Jack Wright is a singer, composer and music arranger who has performed in venues throughout the U.S. and Canada. He comes to the stage with a background in musical theater and classical music, from which he has emerged as an accomplished popular singer and musician.
“Being able to sing Neil Diamond songs with a voice that sounds a lot like his is a gift, not an effort. But for me, and hopefully for my audiences, it’s much more than that. I want people to understand and feel the songs through my interpretations of the lyrics, and the power of my orchestrations. If people can connect to Neil, and to each other, through me, I’ve accomplished something that’s fulfilling and rewarding for me.” – Jack Wright
“This was an amazing concert. Jack doesn’t just stand on the stage and sing! He is the consummate entertainer. He brings the audience along on a journey through Neil Diamond’s music. I was thoroughly entertained! Great show!” – Nancy Rosenblatt – Concert Attendee
“Amazing performer.” – Laura Ridl – Davis Arts Council
“I had to settle a bet after the performance. Was he lip-synching Neil Diamond? Absolutely not! Jack Wright is the real deal!” – Brian Pennebaker – Manager – Rossmoor Event Center
