Silver Bells and The Diamonds

Friday, Dec. 18, 7 p.m.; Madera Clubhouse Crystal Ballroom; ticket price: Rows A-D $28, Rows E-M $27; Produced by TAD Management

It’s a Yuletide Rock n’ Roll Revue starring Santa’s favorite helpers, The Diamonds! Dancin’ in the aisles Rock ‘n Roll and “sparkling” holiday music—the perfect combination.

It’s been thirty years since The Diamonds released an instant million selling hit, “Little Darlin’.” The song continues to sell and to date has sold approximately 20 million copies.

Silver Bells and The Diamonds combines the best of The Diamonds in Concert with sparkling holiday favorites everyone will enjoy. The show opens with a “Jingle Bells” medley followed by a first half of hit songs from the ’50s, ’60s, ’70s and ’80s. Then, in the second half, The Diamonds use their signature harmony filled vocals, and always entertaining stage presence, to get the audience into the Christmas spirit with a fast-paced ride through many of the great holiday favorites.
