The 1950’s Fabulous Foursome! This is a fan site of the original Diamonds of the 1950s. All  hailing from Canada, they made their way to  the U. S.,  and with their songs and energy, endeared themselves to  their fans forever.  This is a fan site of the "Original" Diamonds Singing Group of the 1950s. It has been on the Internet since 1998 and is updated when new content becomes available.  Information contained in this website, is the version of events as related to me by original members: Phil Levitt, Ted Kowalski, Bill Reed and Dave Somerville. Note:  The bulk of the Diamonds' success came from their work in the United States, but they were one of many fine groups and artists that came from Canada.

Please Take The Poll Phil Levitt Ted Kowalski Dave Somerville Bill Reed Dave Somerville, passed away July 14, 2015. As lead singer of the  Diamonds his voice defined the Diamonds’ sound. Dave started  singing professionally in 1953 and continued until his death. To  quote Dave, “I haven’t had a day job since 1953!” Dick Clark  once  said, "When you think of The Diamonds, you've got to think of Dave  Somerville."  Obituary   Bill Reed, the original bass singer, who at 68, passed away October  22, 2004.  Bill's smooth bass voice was the foundation of The  Diamonds and was instrumental in establishing their signature  sound.  We are saddened at his loss, but rejoice in the privilege of  hearing him sing. Obituary  July 14, 2015: It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Dave Somerville,  lead singer of the original Diamonds, For 60+ years Dave has been singing, writing,  acting and with his pleasant speaking voice, doing voice-overs for major companies.   Over the years, as the music has changed, Dave’s drive  and talent has kept him in pace to always stay relevant.   In his one man show he would dazzle his fans with  songs of the ‘50s and his knowledge of that era. Even at  81 he was scheduled to perform in Australia in July  2015. His friends and fans, which are many, will miss  him greatly.  Rest In Peace, Good Friend.  (Listen to a clip of one of Dave’s last recordings) NOTICE:
