A continuous line up of 5 highly talented male singers working together as a vocal powerhouse has propelled the Temptations thru out their 50-year history.

With songs like “Get Ready”, “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg”, “Losing You”, “Cloud Nine”, “Just My Imagination”, “Ball Of Confusion”, “Runaway Child”, Psychedelic Shack” and “My Girl” the group has amassed a catalog of over 30 Top Ten and #1 songs in the last 45 years.

Hot August Night - Neil Diamond Tribute

Sunday, January 11, 2015

Lead singer Dean Colley has been performing in rock bands since 1982, after leaving the University of Southern California, where he was studying biology. 15 years of playing in bars and regional fairs followed playing rock and roll covers with other local musicians. All the while, people began taking notice of Dean’s ever more prominent resemblance to Neil Diamond. Soon, audience members were asking Dean if he did any Neil Diamond songs. A short time later, a local businessman asked Dean if he’d like to put together a tribute to Neil Diamond. Dean accepted the challenge and began studying the songs of the legendary singer/songwriter. After a trial version of Dean as Neil Diamond in a small club, he was offered a chance to perform for a community concert put on by a local Kiwanis club. From there, the show became known as “Hot August Night”, after the title of Neil Diamond’s live album recorded at the Greek Theater.

His breakthrough came via El Coyote, a popular sinaloense banda vocalist, who recorded his songs and made them into hits, beginning with "Besitos en el Cuello," "Prohibido," and "Para Impresionarte" in 2005-2006. Soon Paz was penning songs for a long list of regional Mexican artists, including Sergio Vega, La Arrolladora Banda el Limón, Banda Cuisillos, Julio Chaidez, Banda de Jerez, Jenny Rivera, Chuy Lizarraga, Adair Elizalde, El Potro de Sinaloa, El Chapo de Sinaloa, and Duelo, among numerous others.

Another independently released album, Amigo con Derechos (2008), followed before Paz was offered a recording contract with the major label Universal Latino, which released the album El Canta Autor del Pueblo (2008) on its Machete Music subsidiary.
