"Talented, Professional and Punctual! Steve performed for one of our corporate events. He arrived early, was set up and ready to perform well in advance of the party. Steve was engaging with our guests during his meet/greet and especially in the course of performing. Steve is extremely talented, has a beautiful voice, and performs exceedingly well. The guests loved him. And the client remarked that he was extremely professional to perform past his allotted time when one of our other talents was running late. Steve ensured there was no lapse in entertainment for our guests. I will be hiring Steve again!" --Doug K, agent/talent buyer

"WOW! Thanks for a GREAT show! And thanks for adding a bit of humor! Everybody can always use a good laugh! Thanks again!" --Alex, talent buyer/event coordinator
"Perfect performance by top notch professional! I hired Steve to perform at my mom's memorial service. My mom loved Neil Diamond and having Steve perform at her service was a perfect tribute to her. His performance was outstanding. He sounds so much like Neil that "impressive" doesn't begin to describe his talent. His professionalism began from the moment he sent me his initial quote down to the breakdown of his equipment and exit from the event. I would absolutely hire Steve again without hesitation and would highly recommend him to anyone. The feedback from those in attendance was outstanding! Everyone enjoyed his contribution to remembering my mom. Thank you Steve for making what was a difficult event for me, a bright celebration of my mom's life!" --Jennifer S, talent buyer/event coordinator

"Fantastic! Steve Waddington aka Neil Diamond was fantastic. He performed for my mother's 85th birthday party. He looks and sounds just like Neil.

I highly recommend using Steve Waddington." --Teri S, talent buyer/private party
"Amazing Band! Couldn't have asked for anything better!!! Steve, Susan & Group did an amazing job entertaining our guests! The birthday boy was so touched by Steve's incredible voice and his amazing impersonations that he teared up a bit and sang along for most of the night. The band is not only very talented, but they were well prepared - arrived on time, brought everything they needed, set up on time and entertained us all oh so well.
