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 included the voices of Frank Sinatra, Neil Diamond, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Tony Bennett and other singing legends. Since 1997, Tom has performed full-time as a Neil Diamond impersonator / tribute artist across the U.S., Canada, and is 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 and in November 1997 Tom debuted his Jazz Singer era Neil Diamond.
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 Sadge has met Neil Diamond and his band members on several occasions. Does Neil approve of Tom? During a 2002 concert in State College PA.Neil, spotting Tom in the front row, leaned over the stage and, pointing to Tom, told the crowd of many thousands, "This guy sounds just like me!."
Opening national act credits include Engelbert Humperdinck, whom Tom considers a friend, comedien Jackie Mason, Kool and the Gang, The Guess Who (featuring Burton Cummings), Bare Naked Ladies, Jay and the Americans and The Lords (Germany).
