Bruce in the U.S.A

Lake Michigan Credit Union Waterfront Stage
Bruce In The USA is much more than just another tribute…
This high-energy musical experience is a note-perfect and visually accurate recreation of a Bruce Springsteen & The E St. Band show.  To millions of diehard fans around the world, it’s Springsteen’s marathon, party-like performances that have elevated him to hero status. Bruce’s legendary concerts (in the largest arenas) sell-out within hours of their announced sale. For those even lucky enough to get a ticket, there was nothing that could fill the aching void in between Bruce’s long-awaited tours…until now!

Legends Live – Neil Diamond and Tom Jones Tribute Artists

Lake Michigan Credit Union Waterfront Stage

WILL CHALMERS has been performing his tribute to Neil Diamond for the past eight years. His show appeals to all ages and he loves to get the audience involved by encouraging them to clap and sing along. Will’s natural resemblance to Neil Diamond, his flawless replication of Neil’s singing voice, combined with his outstanding stage presence has been captivating audiences wherever he goes. The response from Neil fans has been an unbelievable experience. Will is both friendly and personable and people approach him with ease, he is always available to speak to people after the performance and welcomes their comments.

Will has traveled extensively with his band from the East Coast to Western Canada with stops to the United States as well as many venues in Ontario performing in Theatres, Casinos, Convention Centre’s, Arena’s, Corporate Events and Resorts including many outdoor Festivals.

Neil Diamond is a Living Legend and it is with much respect and admiration for the singer songwriter that Will Chalmers tribute is performed. People leave the show with a smile on their face and a song in their hearts.

From the initial notes of his opening set to the final bow to his adoring audience, Dave LaFame’s Tom Jones tribute show captures perfectly the glamour, excitement and sizzle of one of the entertainment industry’s brightest stars. Dave LaFame began his career in entertainment more than three decades ago, playing bass guitar and singing with numerous bands in London, England. From there he surged into a successful career onstage, moved to Canada and eventually built up a successful career as an actor, singer and bass player. He amassed numerous credits on television, in film and on stage, and along the way developed a sterling reputation as a hard worker and a team player. In the year 2000, Dave produced a one-man show featuring comedic impersonations of more than 200 musical stars, from Frank Sinatra and Elvis to Freddie Mercury and all three Bee Gees. Although the show was well received from start to finish, it was the rave reviews he received for his impersonation of Tom Jones that led him to expand it into a stand-alone tribute show.
