Tickets for the Canyon Lake Fine Arts Guild’s Neil Diamond tribute concert are sold out. The concert will be held on Saturday, Oct. 19, at 7 p.m. at the lodge. The pre-concert reception for Fine Arts Guild members starts at 5:30 p.m.

For more than 25 years, entertainer Jay White has taken on the persona of one of the world’s best-loved musical icons, Neil Diamond. Jay appeared as Neil Diamond in the movie “Frost/Nixon” and with Neil on his DVD Box Set, Stages.

Canyon Lakers may remember Jay from when he first appeared at the lodge to a sold-out audience ten years ago.

With 38 songs in the Top 10 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary charts, Neil Diamond has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling musicians of all time.

Jay will be singing some of Neil’s all-time favorites: “Sweet Caroline,” “Cracklin’ Rosie,” “Song Sung Blue,” “Longfellow Serenade,” “If You Know What I Mean,” “Desiree,” “You Don’t Bring Me Flowers,” “America” and “Yesterday Songs.”

“Jay’s Neil Diamond tribute act has headlined the Las Vegas Strip for eight years, which is the longest ever by a solo tribute artist,” said Fine Arts Guild President Ron Martel. “His nine-year run with Legends in Concert is also unequaled. After more than 9,000 performances, the Guild is thrilled to have Jay White return to Canyon Lake.”
