Indisputably the whole package, David Sherry is recognized by industry professionals to possess not only the looks and talent but the characteristic charisma of the great legend himself. When interviewed by the San Diego UnionTribune, Randy Sterling, bass player for for Neil Diamond's band said, “This is exactly what I remember when I was standing 4 feet from Neil (on tour) . . . what sets Sherry apart is that he gives a heart-felt tribute rather than a mechanically cloned performance.'' Alan Graham, author of "I Remember Jim Morrison," wrote in the Coronado Clarion, "Sherry does NOT impersonate Neil Diamond. He simply pays great tribute to a great entertainer. Most tribute bands or clone acts fall far short in their attempts to imitate the original artist and I have never seen anyone who could. David Sherry kicks the door down in this regard because he is more than a mere entertainer. He is absolutely immersed in his presentation of Diamond’s work, and to most of the audience, it WAS Neil Diamond on stage, not David Sherry. The real David Sherry has literally bottled the essence of the music and the spirit. Then he dispenses it to his audience as surely as healing medicine.'''
As a recording artist, David Sherry has the distinction of producing and releasing the only Neil Diamond cover CD that has reached the top of music charts. His “Glory Road” CD released in 2014 rose to the top 10 on European album charts during the summer of 2015, peaking at #1 in September where it remained for 3 weeks. Appearing on TV, radio and live on stage both nationally and internationally, this engaging show has an unbroken record for standing ovations.
