In 1957 THE DIAMONDS released an instant million selling hit called Little Darlin’. The song has been dubbed, “the National Anthem of Rock and Roll." The Diamonds' many accomplishments over the years include:

Soundtrack of “American Graffiti"; and

Since the release of "Little Darlin’" THE DIAMONDS have learned one important lesson—the durability of this classic rock and roll music is as much about the future as it is about the past.
