Meet The Diamonds

Adam David Marino

Adam David Marino, hails from Rochester, NY, where he attended Nazareth College, studying musical theater. He quickly put his learning to good use, performing in regional theaters across the U.S. in such roles as Doody in Grease, Ritchie Valens in The Buddy Holly Story, and Terk in Tarzan, where he became eligible for membership in the Actor’s Equity Association. Adam has performed around the world with AIDA cruise lines as a singer/dancer and worked with the EVOC a cappella group in the Dominican Republic. He’s appeared in Williamsburg, VA at the famed Busch Gardens amusement park. Adam is proud to be with THE DIAMONDS and is excited to carry on the tradition of excellence and fun!

JEFF DOLAN

The newest addition to THE DIAMONDS is bass singer Jeff Dolan. Jeff has worn many musical hats in his career – first as a member of the sensational vocal jazz group Beachfront Property, then as the bass singer and vocal contractor for Ray Conniff, touring internationally for ten years. Jeff was a member of the Dapper Dans of Disneyland, worked as a Christmas caroler for 25 years and has appeared on over 25 CDs. He has numerous recording credits including a Grammy award and singing with the Phoenix Chorale. He has graced the musical theatre stage in both Phoenix and Southern California, and served as the artistic director of the Tucson Barbershop eXperience Chorus. But for sure, Jeff’s greatest accomplishments are his kids — Danny, Bonnie, Hayley and Claire!

GARY OWENS

Baritone singer Gary Owens has spent the longest time as a Diamond joining forces with bass singer John Felton in 1973. A well-rounded musician, Owens learned his craft as a journeyman bass player around Los Angeles while earning his undergraduate degree in music at California State University, Long Beach. In the early 1980’s, Owens took a brief hiatus from THE DIAMONDS to complete his Master’s Degree in Business Administration at the University of Southern California. Besides singing, and playing saxophone and flute, Owens does much of the vocal arranging for THE DIAMONDS. In that capacity, he is well aware of the group’s particular effectiveness. “Our goal has always been to keep that classic Diamonds’ sound intact. Although THE DIAMONDS are four distinctive individuals,” he notes, “we have created one strong group personality. The four of us as a unit have a special chemistry, and it is that chemistry that gives us our unique identity.”

Michael Lawrence

Michael Lawrence is originally from South Carolina and is now residing in Las Vegas, Nevada. He is no stranger to the world of performing with a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in Musical Theatre from Coastal Carolina University. In addition to performing at regional theaters around the US, he has had the opportunity to perform all over the world. He was a lead singer at Universal Studios Japan in Osaka and toured as a lead singer on Holland America Cruise Line for 2.5 years. Although Michael’s true passion is a live performance, he has also worked as a recording artist, commercial/film actor, and model.

Gary, Jerry, Sean and Jeff’s fast-paced and highly professional performance brought the audience to its feet in an instantaneous ovation at its conclusion.

Jaque Dickensheid, Two Rivers Historical Society

Our audience absolutely loved The Diamonds! Their programming, delivery, and wit won the crowd over almost instantly. I have been presenting concerts in this series for seven years and this might have been the best yet!

Paul Hoverman, The Van Wert County Foundation

A large part of our audience said it was our best concert ever. I would recommend The Diamonds to anyone that enjoys good music, a fun filled, energetic evening, and great entertainment.

The Diamonds were wonderful. Their performance brought the crowd to their feet; no one wanted to leave when their performance was over. I keep receiving compliments even though the Palos Hills Friendship Festival was over 2 weeks ago!
