Listening to Dave Somerville speak is listening to the oral history of Rock And Roll,
Rockabilly & Doo-Wop all rolled into one!
And listening to him sing is one vocal treat you just cannot miss.
He is beyond a doubt the Classiest act in all of Rock 'n' Roll.
From the moment he takes the stage, you are in for a performance you will never forget.
You are taken back to 1957, and get to hear history as if you were there when it happened.
His "1957 Greyhound Bus Tour" places you in the Front seat of the bus with Little
Richard, Buddy Holly and The Crickets, Buddy Knox, Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers,
Eddie Cochran, Laverne Baker, Paul Anka The Everly Brothers, The Drifters and Fats Domino.
All the stars of that VERY first Dick Clark Cavalcade of stars tour. This was the first
time a show of all the top acts in one setting toured the country non-stop for two months.

"Words can not tell what a hush was over the
room as Diamond Dave told stories and sang
the music that made up much of the history
of Rock & Roll. And, it was all true because
he was there. In the fall of '57, after topping
the charts with 8 hits, Dave Somerville and
THE DIAMONDS joined a legendary Rock &
Roll bus tour with other rising stars - Fats
Domino, Buddy Holly & The Crickets, The
Everly Brothers, Chuck Berry, Paul Anka,
The Drifters, La Vern Baker, Eddie Cochran,
Buddy Knox, Clyde McPhatter and Frankie
Lymon. For two months of one-nighters
these founding fathers of Rock & Roll
barnstormed North America making musical
history and sharing unforgettable experiences."
"It is said that sometimes in the next
5 minutes, the voice of Dave
Somerville will electrify the airwaves
somewhere in the world. As the
lead singer (and founding member)
of The Diamond's song 'Little
Darlin'', one of the seminal songs of
rock and roll, and classics such as
'Why do Fools Fall In Love,'
'Silhouettes' and 'The Stroll,' his
vocals on these anthems have become staples of radio programming."
