Tribute to Neil Diamond at the Riviera Hotel. For Jay's entire career, his image has reflected one of America's brightest stars with an uncanny likeness to Neil Diamond.

 Jay IS America's Favorite
Neil Diamond


 Larry G. Jones, unlike most impressionists Jones can readily switch his voice from men to women and back again. Larry's mannerisms and vocalizations are dead-on, it is his comical parodies that set him apart.


WINNER  Bill Lackey


WINNER Gregory St. Martin

Barbra & Frank
The Concert That Never Was

A fun evening with arguably two of the best Streisand/Sinatra impersonators. This tantalizing show gives a glimpse at what it could have been like for Barbra and Frank to team up.

WINNER  Larry Tyler
