|July 1st: Dr. Diamond - Sponsored by Cool Kids Clothes, First Church Early Learning Center, Grimshaw Tree Service and Nursery|
Ironically, the lives of Louis S. Competiello, M.D. (Dr. Diamond) and Neil Diamond parallel each other. Both men were born in Brooklyn, New York and later lived on Long Island. Dr. Competiello loved music from an early age but went on to pursue a career in medicine. Neil Diamond wanted to be a physician but his love of music lead him to become one of the greatest music legends of all time.
Dr. Competiello speaks Italian, Spanish, French, and Polish, which he uses in treating many of his patients.
Backed by his great orchestra, Brooklyn Roads, Dr. Diamond is sure to create a memorable experience. Meet the band members below!
