Tom Jones, Neil Diamond Tribute Artists
Added to BCPAC Summer Concert Series

Bradford Creative & Performing Arts Center (BCPAC) has added two headliners to share the stage in their new Tuesday Tribute Concert Series starting in the summer of 2016. A Tribute to Tom Jones and Neil Diamond will hit the stage on June 14, 2016 @ 7:30pm. The performance will take place at the Bromeley Family Theater located at the University of Pitt/Bradford.

From the initial notes of his opening set to the final bow to his adoring audience, Dave LaFame’s Tom Jones tribute show captures perfectly the glamour, excitement and sizzle of one of the entertainment industry’s brightest stars. He has accumulated an impressive list of awards, including the 2012 Las Vegas Celebrity Impersonators Award for top male entertainer.

Dave LaFame began his career in entertainment more than three decades ago, playing bass guitar and singing with numerous bands in London, England. From there he surged into a successful career onstage, moved to Canada and eventually built up a successful career as an actor, singer and musician. He amassed numerous credits on television, in film and on stage, and along the way developed a sterling reputation as a hard worker and a team player.

Mark Thomas has spent the last decade cultivating Neil's persona and honing his vocal skills to recreate the image and sound of not only his idol, but also one of the world's most recognized music icons. He showcases his ability to re-create the sound and showmanship that has made Neil a true icon admired by the young and old worldwide. Mark has all the favorites, and then some, in his repertoire spanning Neil’s 40+ years of entertaining. He gives a high-energy interactive show each and ever time he performs. One of Mark’s entertainment objectives is to whisk the audience away, by performing that one song that brings back a fond memory. Having attained international status through countless performances in both Canada and the U.S. (and now most recently the United Kingdom), Mark's tribute act to this Legendary Star has become a 'must see' for all Neil Diamond fans.

PNC Bank and Beefeater’s Restaurant are co-sponsors of this new series.

Tickets are priced at $20 each and will be available for the general public August 10th. A season subscription for all 6 shows in the 2016 Summer Concert Series is only $100 and will go on sale July 1. Information will be forthcoming at the BCPAC office 814-362-2522, or online at www.bcpac.com.
