Mark Diamond and friends – featuring Nelson Rangell, Jeff Jenkins, and Jill Fredericksen - will perform at Bohemian Biergarten May 11 from 7 to 10 PM.

A current Colorado resident, Diamond’s hard-grooving acoustic bass sound was birthed in the New York area. Diamond’s professional career started in New Jersey in the early “70’s” at  Family & Friends with Jeff Kohnberg and Lisa Cerasia.

In 1980, Diamond moved to Colorado with the band Arabesque and has since been a sought after sideman on more than 100 albums, including Grammy Award winner Tim O’Brien.

Over the years, Diamond has played for President Bill Clinton and other luminaries. Diamond has toured Europe, and regularly appears at festivals and clubs across the country. He has performed with such legendary performers as Earl Klugh, Nnenna Freelon, Spike Robinson, Richie Cole, James Moody, Buddy Tate, (of the original Count Basie Band), and Bruno Carr (the drummer for Ray Charles, Herbie Mann, and many jazz greats).

Diamond has opened shows for B.B. King, Kenny Rogers, Wilson Pickett and Koko Taylor to name a few. Along with his band mates Jayme Stone, Adam Galblum and Ross Martin, Daimond is the proud recipient of the prestigious 2008 Juno Award (the Canadian equivalent of a Grammy) for Best Instrumental Recording of the Year for work on the Jayme Stone release, The Utmost.
