Neil Diamond Impersonator - Tom Sadge
Tom Sadge (pronounced Tom Sage) has been a full-time entertainer his
entire adult life. He began as a singer with bands and, later, became a popular
mobile DJ / vocal impressionist whose repertoire includes showstopping
impersonations of Neil Diamond, Tom Jones, and Engelbert Humperdinck. He also
performs singing impressions of legendary singers such as Frank Sinatra, Elvis
Presley, Johnny Cash, Tony Bennett and others.
Since 1997, Tom has performed as a full-time celebrity impersonator /
tribute artist across the U.S., Canada, and several European countries.
The celebrity impersonation act germinated in the summer of 1996 when
Marion, Tom's wife and business partner of over three decades, was inspired by
a Legends In Concert anniversary booklet. Why not use makeup and costumes as
did the impersonators performing on the Las Vegas strip? The transition from
local entertainer to a national act as a tribute artist thus began. In November
1997, Tom Sadge debuted his Jazz Singer era Neil Diamond act, and was an
immediate hit with audiences.
Since his debut, Tom has entertained at many major venues throughout
the U.S., Canada and Europe. "Diamondheads" (Neil's top fans) in both
the U.S. and Europe have hired him to perform at fan club gatherings, eight
consecutive Neil Diamond Chicago & Amsterdam Fan Birthday Party celebrations
and three Carnival Fan Cruises.
Tom has performed in Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, France, and
Mexico, as well.
Tom Sadge has met Neil Diamond and his band members on several
occasions. Does Neil approve of Tom? During a concert in State College PA,
Neil, spotting Tom in the front row, leaned over the stage and, pointing the
mic at Tom, told the crowd of many thousands, "This guy sounds just like
Opening national act credits include Engelbert Humperdinck, whom Tom

Factory, the Duck Dynasty family, and others.
