Bruce Diamond is also probably the busiest and most in-demand multi-instrumentalist in the Rochester, NY Area.
"He plays what he sells, and others as well!"
Here are some of the bands Bruce works with:
Hey Red Band www.heyredband.com
Time to check out Hey Red, the good-time Rochester, N.Y., band with the best mix of R&B, swing, blues and pop. This red hot group with a cool new take on club music blends a variety of musical backgrounds to produce a special kind of energy and soul - then turns it loose on a fresh yet familiar mix of songs that lifts you out of your seat and keeps the party goin'!
Driven by Beth Steele's powerful vocals, backed by top-shelf guitar and keyboard work plus rock-solid bass and drums, Hey Red has packed some of the area's top clubs - the Dinosaur, Johnny's, The Beale, Sticky Lips Juke Joint and more - all in its first year. They do it with songs people love, but only Hey Red plays. If you like Bonnie Raitt, Fiona Apple, Delbert McClinton, Annie Lennox, Alannah Myles … if you like your R&B, swing, blues and pop with an extra helping of groove and feel … then you're gonna love Hey Red.

This is one FUN dance band We do mostly bristish Invasion stuff, with a strong accent on The Beatles. For us ',new' means Tom Petty and we love covering his tunes as well. When folks hear Walt O'Brian [ formally of the Chesterfield Kings] sing ,you can hear the sound of jaws dropping all over the room. With Inside Out, I handle keyboards [ yamaha YMP-625] for a great variation of sounds and also play second guitar [ on a great variation of guitars].
