A major reason for The Diamonds' longevity as performers and entertainers lies in
the diverse backgrounds of the individual members of the group. The youngest member,
Adam David Marino, hails from Rochester, NY, where he attended Nazareth College,
studying musical theater. He quickly put his learning to good use, performing in regional
theaters across the U.S. in such roles as Doody in Grease, Ritchie Valens in The Buddy
Holly Story, and Terk in Tarzan, where he became eligible for membership in the Actor's
Equity Association. Adam has performed around the world with AIDA cruise lines as a
singer/dancer and worked with the EVOC a cappella group in the Dominican Republic.
He’s appeared in Williamsburg, VA at the famed Busch Gardens amusement park. Adam is
proud to be with The Diamonds and is excited to carry on the tradition of excellence and fun!
Michael Lawrence originally from South Carolina, and now residing in Las Vegas, He is
no stranger to the world of performing with a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in Musical Theatre
from Coastal Carolina University. In addition to performing at regional theaters around the US
he has had the opportunity to perform all over the world. He was a lead singer at Universal
Studios Japan in Osaka and toured as a lead singer on Holland America Cruise Line for 2 ½ years.
Although Michael's true passion is live performance, he has also worked as a recording artist,
commercial/film actor, and model.
Bass singer Jeff Dolan joined The Diamonds in 2011. Jeff has worn many musical hats in his
career -- first as a member of the sensational vocal jazz group Beachfront Property, then as the
bass singer and vocal contractor for Ray Conniff, touring internationally for 10 years. Jeff was
a member of the Dapper Dans of Disneyland, worked as a Christmas caroler for 25 years and has
appeared on over 25 CDs. He has numerous recording credits including a Grammy award singing with
the Phoenix Chorale. He has graced the musical theatre stage in both Phoenix and Southern California
and served as the artistic director of the Tucson Barbershop eXperience Chorus.
Baritone singer Gary Owens has spent the longest time as a Diamond joining forces with bass
singer John Felton in 1973. A well-rounded musician, Owens learned his craft as a journeyman bass
player around Los Angeles while earning his undergraduate degree in music at California State
University, Long Beach. In the early 1980’s, Owens took a brief hiatus from The Diamonds to complete
his Master’s Degree in Business Administration at the University of Southern California. Besides
singing, and playing saxophone and flute, Owens does much of the vocal arranging for The Diamonds. In
that capacity, he is well aware of the group’s particular effectiveness. "Our goal has
always been to keep that classic Diamonds’ sound intact. Although The Diamonds are four distinctive
individuals," he notes, "we have created one strong group personality. The four of
us as a unit have a special chemistry, and it is that chemistry that gives us our unique identity."
