Keith Allynn will bring his Neil Diamond Tribute Show to Attic Productions Theater at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 19.
Keith Allynn Brown, who since moving to Branson, Mo., and having his own show, changed his name to just Keith Allynn.
He grew up in Botetourt County. Keith is a 1991 graduate of James River High School. He became an Eagle Scout with Troop 137 in Troutville at the age of 14. The Eagle Scout Project he did at the Botetourt County Courthouse was a walking tour guide of Fincastle.
At age 21, he discovered his musical talents performing an Elvis song at karaoke. The crowd went crazy and Keith was hooked. Soon he became an Elvis Tribute Artist, and performed and competed as Elvis for several years. In 2004, he was voted on by Graceland as being a Top 10 Elvis Tribute Artist in the World.
Later wanting to impress a girl who loved Neil Diamond, Keith called her on the phone and in his best Neil voice sang her “Hello Again” from “The Jazz Singer.” That became her song, she became his wife and he became The Diamond Image.
Experience the “Feel of Neil” in Keith’s latest 100-minute, non-stop production that tells the story of Neil Diamond’s life through Diamond’s own songs from the ’60s through today. Sing along to favorites like “Cherry Cherry,” “Cracklin’ Rosie,” “America,” “Solitary Man,” “Play Me,” “Love on the Rocks,” “Song Sung Blue,” “Sweet Caroline” and many more.
His awards include “Tribute Artist of the Year,” 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014; CD of the Year, 2010; Branson’s Best Kept Secret and 2011 Branson’s Best Tribute Show.
Prepare to see Branson’s highly decorated morning show, “A Neil Diamond Tribute.”
The show is sponsored by The Bank of Fincastle. Tickets (sold at the door) are $15 and $10 for ages 65 and over. Attic Productions Theater is located at 7490 Roanoke Road, Fincastle.
