You won't believe your ears when you first hear Las Cruces's own Neil Diamond tribute artist Chris Waggoner performing some of the most beloved, iconic Neil Diamond tunes, backed by his 10 piece “Play Me” Band. The band routinely puts on high-powered, sold-out performances throughout New Mexico, and is now pleased to bring their music back to the Rio Grande Theatre for this special benefit performance. Doors open at 6:30pm. Showtime at 7:00 pm.
All net proceeds from this concert go to Dona Ana Arts Council YOUTH ARTS PROGRAMS. Please help support these programs for the young people of Las Cruces and Dona Ana County: Career Art Path, Missoula Children's Theatre, Youth-At-Risk Art Workshops at La Casa Shelter for Domestic Violence. THANK YOU!
In addition to covering dozens of Neil Diamond hits like “Sweet Caroline”, “America”, “Forever in Blue Jeans”, and “Cherry, Cherry”, Play Me puts their own creative touches on them to create an intimate atmosphere. Chris Waggoner, who channels Neil Diamond as the front man of Play Me, brings vigor and intensity to the show.
