Along with performing at festivals, corporate events, theaters, wineries and hundreds of various venues since 2014… Jason Lohrke actually personifies and portrays early Neil Diamond during an originally produced theatre show as well called, “I AM, I SAID.” Jason takes the audience back in time to share true and fascinating facts of Diamond’s childhood, teenage, and early adult years in Brooklyn New York where he began his career as a song-writer in Tin Pan Alley at the infamous Brill Building. This new tribute theatre show/ live concert includes an incredible live band performance of Neil’s legendary songs. These were and are the timeless hits that moved Diamond into his international superstardom of the 1960’s, 1970’s and up to the epic Motion Picture Soundtrack, “The Jazz Singer” from 1980.
The presentation of this highly reviewed and interactive new show began in 2017 and now in 2019 continues from a 70 show residency in San Diego. It is filled with surprising points of drama, humor, excitement, hope, and infectious inspiration. It is a new tribute production that includes an interwoven storyline of the life of one of the world’s most beloved and celebrated singer, song-writer and living legend performer’s of all time, Neil Diamond. This residency will again resume for the winter season of 2019 @ the 330 seat luxury Welk Theatre in San Diego, CA.
Performing in original rock bands as a signed recording artist and as a solo artist since the 1990’s, Jason has spent the last 5 years doing tributes to various artists, such as; David Bowie, Bono of U2, and Jim Morrison of The Doors. He has however spent most of that time entertaining as early Neil Diamond. His other love for stage theatre since the age of 10, is now combined for his love of live music in this new production that he has written, produced and of course performs in. He currently lives with his wife Jennifer and their three children in Mission Viejo, CA.
