Read what our customers have to say about the band.
THIS BAND IS THE REAL THING! We hired Johnny Diamond and the Silver Hubcap Band for a 50's 50-year-old party. They worked with me on every detail of the event. They put on a great, high-energy show that gave an authentic feel to the 50's environment. I could not have asked for a more pleasant band to work with. Even in the very hot month of July, they carried on as if the heat didn't bother them. Never a complaint. I highly recommend them and I'm not one to give 5 stars easily. These guys earned it. They can play more than 50's music also. All well done. If you want the REAL THING, hire Johnny Diamond and the Silver Hubcap Band! Great job, guys!
