Dakota Concert Association 2015-16 season begins with JEWEL of a show
The 2015-16 season of the Dakota Concert Association (DCA) begins with a "jewel" of a show when Denny Diamond and his sons Spenser and Lucas, bring to the area, their tribute band, The Jewels, performing the first concert of the season on Tuesday, October 13, 2015, at the Hettinger School Auditorium.
Well known for their fun, family show, the Denny Diamond band features the music of Neil Diamond, but also
includes songs from other performers of the era, such as Johnny Cash, Ricky Nelson and Glen Campbell. They
add a bit of original music to create an interesting, enjoyable show that includes audience interaction, toe-tapping,
singing and smiling.
"It's the type of show that audiences enjoy," says Norm Smith, Dakota Concert Association president, "a
show people can get involved with."
Admission to this 7:30 pm MDT concert is by season ticket. Season tickets may be purchased now at K.B.
