Neil Diamond Phillips

Neil Diamond Phillips


Sequins and chest hair as far as the eye can see...Neil Diamond Phillips is the First Original World's Greatest Neil Diamond Tribute Band. We perform songs from all eras of Neil's career, combined with a dose of improvised comedy in between tunes.


Neil Diamond Phillips started as a joke to entertain our friends but between the audience reaction at our first show and the explosion of hits we received on our My Space page, we decided there may be some staying power. Using a combination of rock and comedy, NDP appeals to die hard fans of Neil, casual listeners and people who straight up can't stand him. Now, two years after starting we've played at such Chicago venues as Double Door, Subterranean and Beat Kitchen, as well as various bars in the city and outlying suburbs. We create a party atmosphere, which seems to work well with most any other performer we could be paired with.


We have released three EPs, "the Pet Depot Sessions", which featured "Sweet Caroline", "I'm a Believer", "Shilo" and "America", followed by "Religion and Drugs", which featured "Thank the Lord for the Nighttime", "Brother Love's Traveling Salvation Show", "the Potsmokers' Song" and "Holly Holy" and, most recently "Drunk Before Dark", featuring the songs "Cherry, Cherry", "Forever in Blue Jeans", "Crunchy Granola Suite", "Love on the Rocks", and "Soolaimon". All of these tracks can be heard at or and have received airplay on Fearless and WLUW in Chicago. Our concerts have also been broadcast on the Flabby Hoffman Show on Chicago Cable Public Access.
