Chris Hendy

Hello my name is Chris Hendy, a Neil Diamond Tribute Artist & Vocal Entertainer. I am a Bristol-based musician and I perform Neil Diamond Tributes around the UK as ‘Forever Diamond’, singing hits of one of my all time favourite artists, Neil Diamond.

I also perform as ‘Forever Music’ covering popular music hits by a range of Artists through the decades. These include Elvis Presley, Van Morrison, Dire Straits, Showaddywaddy, Mud, and many many more.

Bristol born and raised, my Grandparents owned a music shop and as a child I spent many a happy day surrounded by all sorts of musical instruments and enjoyed making sounds (good & bad!) on anything from guitars, drums and percussion instruments, to organs & pianos.

With a preference for guitars, friends at school soon taught me a few chords and I became hooked on playing – in the following years I learned to play the drums, bass guitar and sax. My passion for music continued throughout school and into my adult life and I eventually joined and performed in various popular local covers bands from the early 80’s.

The eagle-eyed out there may have noticed the change of guitar position in one of the photos. This is because I’m a Lefty but Neil Diamond isn’t, so to make a Neil Diamond tribute more authentic I taught myself to play right-handed and bought myself a copy of his guitar.

Based in Portishead, North Somerset, I travel to all areas of the UK performing my Neil Diamond Tribute for weddings, parties, clubs, theatres, festivals, hotels and corporate functions.
