Huntington - The Paramount, an entertainment venue situated in downtown Huntington, New York, made the Top 25 list on Pollstar Magazine as one of the best clubs worldwide.
Particularly impressive about The Paramount is that it has been open for less than two years. From January through June of 2013, it ranked No. 24 in the world by Pollstar Magazine, which is the concert industry’s leading trade journal. It is expected to build on that success in an effort to continue to make its way up the rankings list as a top venue for live music.
“Our mission from day one at The Paramount has been to create an enjoyable concert experience that not only audiences, but artists also want to return to,” stated Brian Doyle, co-owner of The Paramount and long-time concert industry veteran, in a press statement.
Mr. Doyle continued, “From the moment you walk through the doors, you are transported to another world as the energy of the room gives every concert-goer the feeling that they are in for an amazing show. We are grateful to the support of our partners at Live Nation who have done a tremendous job in helping us bring first class talent to our market”.
According to Stephen Ubertini, co-owner of The Paramount, he remarked in a press statement, “The venue’s rapid climb in Pollstar’s international rankings, and the fact that performers continue to return, tell us we’re on the right track.”
Mr. Ubertini added, “It is always a great moment to hear such world-famous artists like Rob Thomas from Matchbox Twenty say ‘this is one of the most amazing venues I have ever played,’ or Don Henley of The Eagles telling us ‘I am blown away by the energy of the room.’ This is why we work so hard to make the experience so special - for the musicians and for their fans.”
The Paramount holds a capacity of 1,555 people and it hosts such events as concerts, boxing games, community events and stand-up comedians. It is a Ticketmaster venue that is booked by Live Nation and each year it hosts over 150 events.
An array of musical acts have performed there including The Marshall Tucker Band, B.B. King, Matchbox 20, Sick Puppies, Gavin DeGraw, Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell and Rick Springfield, among countless others.
Congratulations to The Paramount and its hard-working staff on this well-deserved recognition.
