The Paramount Breaks a Sweat

Memorial Day Weekend marked the unofficial start of summer; while Jones Beach was swarming with people, some of us steered clear because we don’t have our “beach bodies” quite yet. If you’re anything like me you probably didn’t stay true to your New Year’s resolution of going to the gym. So to get you pumped for summer and feeling confident in a bathing-suit, here are a list of songs that should be on your workout playlist:

 Heartbeats- Jose Gonzales
Yesterday was hard on all of us- Fink
Wish You Were Here- Sparklehorse & Thom York
Breathe Me- Sia
Let Go- Frou Frou
 Night of Your Life- David Guetta ft. Jennifer Hudson
Talk Dirty- Jason Derulo ft. 2 Chainz
Can’t Remember to Forget You- Shakira & Riahanna
#Selfie- Chainsmokers
Summer- Calvin Harris
Weight Lifting
Master of Puppets- Metallica
Till I collapse- Eminem
Back in Black-AC/DC
Swerve City- Deftones
Lift me Up- Five Finger Death Punch
Hiking & Walking  
Sing- Ed Sheeran
Love Runs Out- One Republic
All Night- Icona Pop
Carried Away- Passion Pit
Come with me now- Kongos
Cool Down
I Choose You- Sara Bareilles
All of Me- John Legend
TKO- Justin Timberlake
Children of The Sun- Tinie Tempah ft. John Martin
Big Parade- The Lumineers

The cool down is the most important part of your workout; it consists of light exercises that help your body transition from working hard to resting and will help prevent injuries. We hope that these songs help motivate you while you’re working out and remember sweat is just fat crying!

Way Back Wednesday: O-Town

The Paramount present early-00’s boy band “O-Town” for a one night event on November 5th at 8 pm. Last March, O-Town announced their plans to reunite a decade after breaking up. Although Ashley Parker Angel is not part of the reunited group, original members; Erik Michael Estrada, Jacob Underwood, Dan Miller, and Trevor Penick have become a powerful foursome.

“We started this reunion purely for the fun of it,” O-Town's Jacob Underwood said last March. “We had discussed a summer tour to perform our old songs and finally give the fans what they’ve been asking us for the last 10 years. However, once we began working, what developed was something a little more ambitious. The ideas kept flying and we couldn’t help but start making new music.”

O-Town’s self-titled album spawned two Top 10 Hits, “Liquid Dreams” and “All or Nothing,” which has sold 1.7 million copies to date. After a decade apart, the foursome has finally followed up their 2001 self-titled album with O2. “We are blessed to be able to apply what we’ve learned to create something stimulating and beautiful, that we can call our own,” said Underwood. “This isn’t just a reunion for us, it’s a new beginning.” The Paramount is pleased to welcome back the boys to the stage after a decade of radio silence. O-Town hopes to recapture the magic they once had, while giving Long Island “All or Nothing.”

Tickets for O-Town are available now for purchase through, charge-by-phone @ 800-745-3000 or The Paramount Box Office (open daily from 12 noon - 6 pm). For more information on upcoming shows "like" us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and sign up for our FREE online newsletter.

One Love, One Life and a Long Legacy

May 11th will mark the 33rd anniversary of the short lived life of Bob Marley. While he had many triumphs during his life, it wasn’t until years after his passing that he earned; a star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame, was named Time Magazine’s Best Album of the Century, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with other accolades. In honor of Bob Marley, we are sharing some of the lesser known facts about his life.
  1. Bob’s father was a 50-year-old white British naval captain named Norval Sinclair Marley.
  2. 21-year old Robert Nesta Marley and 19-year old Alfarita “Rita” Constantia Anderson are married in Trench Town, Jamaica. Rita was part of the I-Threes, who sang back up for the Wailers.
  3. After his wedding Bob Marley moved to Delaware to work and save money for his new family and for his hopeful music business.
  4. His official website states that Bob fathered eleven children with several other women while he was married.
  5. As Bob Marley and The Wailers rehearsed at his Kingston home, an unsuccessful assassination attempt was made on his life. Miraculously, no one was killed; Bob escaped with minor gunshot wounds, Rita underwent surgery to remove a bullet that grazed her head. Bob’s manager, Don Taylor, was shot five times and critically wounded; he was airlifted to Miami’s Cedars of Lebanon Hospital for the removal of a bullet lodged against his spinal cord.
  6. The One Love Peace Concert is held at The National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica. During Jamming, Marley joins the hands of political rivals Michael Manley (PNP) and Edward Seaga (JLP) in an unforgettable and historic moment.
  7. In 1976 Rolling Stone Magazine named Bob Marely and The Wailers “Band of the Year”
  8. A 1977 football injury led doctors to discover a malignant melanoma in Marley’s toe. They recommended amputation, but he refused. The tumor then spread, which ultimately caused his death.
  9. The Jamaican Government recognizes Bob’s birthday on February 6th 
  10. The Wailers will be coming to The Paramount on May 23rd. Original members of The Wailers included Bob Marley, Bunny Wailer, Peter Tosh, and Barrett Brothers, Carlton and Aston. Today Aston leads the band as it continues to promote peace, love and equality through music.

Bob Marley was an advocate for social change and used the power of music to bring people together while freeing them from their problems. His music is timeless and lives on long after his passing for it is he who said, “Live for yourself and you will live in vain. Live for others, and you will live again.”
