Op-Ed: The Paramount is the best concert venue of Long Island for 2017

Each week, the biggest concerts are taking place at The Paramount, and the names being booked are getting bigger and bigger. This year alone, it has hosted concerts by such artists as Trace Adkins, Big Shot, Jessie’s Girl, David Duchovny, Dropkick Murphys, and veteran comedian Rob Schneider.

Aside from the regular band and solo acts that they book, Paramount is home to its “Tribute Series” for the cover groups, as well as the “Comedy” and “Legends” series, the latter of which take place in The Founders Room, which are offered to exclusive members. The acoustics of the venue are second to none, and each artist or band that this journalist interviews about their experiences at The Paramount, they always have nothing but the kindest remarks. It is the quintessential venue that they would like to return to perform again. A few legends that have raved about the Paramount include Emmylou Harris, Graham Nash, Eric Burdon of the Animals, as well as Gavin DeGraw and Charles Esten from Nashville, among countless others.
