Nearly Neil to hit beach cruise

A Neil Diamond tribute act is set to entertain car lovers at the Peach City Beach Cruise.

Peach City Beach Cruisers won’t be the only ones rolling out the classics.

On June 24, Nearly Neil and the Solitary Band are set to crank out Neil Diamond’s greatest hits at 10 p.m. in Gyro Park.

B.C. native Bobby Bruce has taken his Nearly Neil tribute around the world. Touring internationally for two decades, he’s performance for the King and Queen of Malaysia, headlined national tours of New Zealand, Belgium and the Netherlands as well as over a dozen tours of Australia continuing today.

Bruce will also be sharing more of himself on stage during an opening set at 8 p.m. as the Bobby Bruce Band.

“I’ve always loved B.C.’s wine country. It gives me a thrill when I can play at home, outside, in a gorgeous location like on the shores of Okanagan Lake. Plus, stepping out behind the sequins to share some of our other favourite songs is just an added pleasure; the band and I can’t wait,” Bruce said.

Admittance to the entertainment in  Gyro Park for the weekend of the beach cruise, June 24 to 26, is $3 for the entire weekend with partial proceeds going towards the BC Children’s Hospital society.
