Brian Diamond - Lead Vocals/Guitar
Brian is a founding member of MoJoDia (Mowad-Jones-Diamond).
Brian has played with the Delaneys over the past decade and has performed at various Steelers, Pirates, or Penguins pre-game festivities at their respective stadiums.
Brian has been honored to work with various hometown athletes on fundraisers in conjunction with local charities especially: Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and Operation Troop Appreciation.
Brian continues that tradition with MoJoDia & The Fireball Horns performing at charity fundraising celebrations at the August Wilson Center to support a local adoption agency and a concert at CCBC to support a kidney and liver transplant patient.
He has also performed at many noteworthy venues in Pittsburgh and surrounding areas including First Niagara Pavillion @ Star Lake, Hard Rock Café, Rivers Casino, Altar Bar, Seven Springs Resort, Nemacolin Resort, Peabody's (Cleveland) and has made regional college stops including Pitt, Clarion, IUP, Slippery Rock, WVU, and Penn State University.
While performing with the Delaneys, Brian has had the privilege to share the stage with some other great acts over the years including Candlebox, Fuel, Gin Blossoms, Sponge, 311, Donnie Iris, and Bret Michaels to name a few.
Brian has warmed up crowds on the side stage @ First Niagara at some big events including Motley Crue, Poison, Sheryl Crow, Hootie and the Blowfish, Three Days Grace, Breaking Benjamin, and Stone Temple Pilots.
Brian has a very unique approach to creating the range of sounds and rhythms that are found within a musical chart. He makes sure that the essence of the underlying pattern formed by the rhythm are honored and at the same time adds a new level of clarity within his approach to the rhythm as well as chord transitions and progressions.
His strong vocals are filled with clarity, controlled pitch and timbre. Brians inspired improvisation and lead quitar licks drive the overall sound of MoJoDia and The Fireball Horns.
