The Paramount is gearing up for a record-breaking run of 14 shows in 14 days, beginning tonight.
The Nov. 2-15 stretch with consecutive shows will be the longest ever for The Paramount, which opened its Huntington village doors in late 2011. The venue was recently ranked sixth worldwide in club/venue attendance by Pollstar.
In a news release, The Paramount’s owners said in a joint statement that “this is a remarkable achievement for our booking department and a great challenge for our staff.”
“We are confident that these two weeks of live shows will be very successful, as we have the best employees in live entertainment. … We would like to thank all of Long Island for helping to keep The Paramount so busy.”
As part of the accomplishment, the venue is promoting a contest through which one winner can grab two tickets to each of the shows.
The lineup has a little bit of everything from country, hip-hop, classic rock, tribute bands, British SKA music, pop-punk and even a comedy show.
The schedule is:
• Nov. 2: Chase Rice
• Nov. 3: Dee Snider
• Nov. 4: Dennis DeYoung
• Nov. 5: The Maine
• Nov. 6: Rich Chigga
• Nov. 7: Eli Young Band
• Nov. 8: The English Beat
• Nov. 9: Skid Row
• Nov. 10: Back to the ’80s Show with Jessie’s Girl
• Nov. 11: Carlos Mencia
• Nov. 12: Brit Floyd
• Nov. 13: King Crimson
• Nov. 14: Culture Club
• Nov. 15: Culture Club
