Diamond tribute coming to Baker Street

Baker Street Centre has added Jack Wright’s tribute show, Neil Diamond Superstar, to its calendar. 

The show will be Saturday, April 15, and will feature a highly acclaimed national touring performance of the hit songs that have kept Diamond in our hearts more than five decades. 

Wright is a singer, composer, and music arranger who has toured all over North America, bringing passionate ballads, soaring anthems, and the high-energy rock n’ roll of a true Diamond concert. With sing-alongs such as “Sweet Caroline,” “Cracklin’ Rose,” and “America,” Wright won’t be the only one singing in the room that evening. 

Tickets are $25 to $50 and are available online at and in person at all three Wooden Nickel locations and Neat Neat Neat Records.  

U.R.B. to perform at Humane fundraiser

Come on out for light appetizers, a full cash bar, and live music by U.R.B. 

Donations to Humane Fort Wayne are encouraged.

Local bands set to open for Sleep Signals

A trio of local acts are set to open for veteran metal act Sleep Signals on Sunday, Feb. 26, inside Stan’s Room at Piere’s. 

Contrøller, Voice of Sylas, and To Breathe Again will take the stage to set the mood. 

The Minneapolis quintet Sleep Signals have garnered a dedicated following through relentless touring, explosive live performances, and catchy hooks combined with their high-energy songwriting style. 

In early 2021, the band released an EP, Ethereal, which saw the band get their first commercial radio success. Although things were looking up, they experienced a major setback shortly thereafter. While on the road with P.O.D., From Ashes to New, and All Good Things, the band experienced a bus accident in Missouri that left several members in the hospital and rehabbing injuries for months. The bus and the band’s gear were described as a complete loss. 

Fast-forward to June, and the band released the music video for “The Return,” commemorating their comeback and readiness for the road. 

This is an all-ages show with $10 tickets that can be purchased at
