Huntington - On Jan. 16, country star Jon Pardi performed at The Paramount in Huntington on Long Island, as part of his "All Time High" tour, presented by Texas Roadhouse.
Country duo and label-mates Brothers Osborne served as his special musical guests.
"What up?" Pardi asked the crowd, as he took the stage, opening with his smash single "Missin' You Crazy." He accompanied himself on electric guitar and commanded the stage well, which was graced in green, purple and blue lights.
He went on to dedicate "Empty Beer Cans" to all the crazy ex-girlfriends and ex-boyfriends out there. "Hello, everybody," Pardi said, greeting The Paramount audience. "How about the Brothers Osborne," he added, praising his talented opening act.
Pardi shared his appreciation for his fans coming to see him from all over the country, and revealed that several of them came from Canada. He went on to dedicate "Trash a Hotel Room" for those that were staying in a hotel room.
The singer-songwriter has a new album coming out later this year, and while he doesn't know its exact release date yet, he listed the feel-good "Cowboy Hat" as one of his favorite songs on the record, and rightfully so.
He immediately broke into "Back On The Backroads," which was infectious. "How about The Paramount," he said, complimenting the venue. "This place is amazing."
Pardi continued with "Over My Head," which is a song from The B-Sides, and switched to acoustic guitar to sing a tender version of "Love You From Here." He showcased his soft side on the soothing country ballad "That Man."
After he ascertained that his fans were having a good time, he strapped his acoustic guitar and sang "When I've Been Drinkin'," which had a neat steel guitar solo. He went on to thank the men and the women in the military for their service. "We owe it all to you," he said.
It was followed by the energetic "Chasin' Them Better Days," which showcased his wide vocal range, and he introduced his gifted band members.
Other noteworthy tunes included "What I Can't Put Down," "All Time High," Write You a Song," his latest single "Head Over Boots" and he closed with his signature hit "Up All Night," where he left his fans wanting to hear more.
The Verdict
Overall, Jon Pardi was fantastic at The Paramount in Huntington, and knew how to get the country party started. He has grown and matured substantially as a country singer-songwriter. He displayed a great deal of charisma and love for his craft. His "All Time High" headlining show was a major success. Hopefully, this is a harbinger for bigger and better things to come for Pardi in the future. His concert at The Paramount earned 5 out of 5 stars.
