ORLANDO, FL (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Paul Mascioli and Mascioli Entertainment have hit a milestone as they celebrate their 40-year anniversary in the industry.
Paul launched the company in 1969 under the name Prestige Talent in Victoria, British Columbia before moving to Vancouver and eventually Nashville, TN. Over the years, Paul has received numerous industry accolades, including the Canadian Country Music Association's "Booking Agent of the Year" in 1987.
In an email, Paul wrote:
This December marks our company’s 40th anniversary and I would like to take a moment to thank all of you for helping to make the first 40 years an incredible ride! During this time, we have booked, managed produced and presented thousands of performing artists who have crossed all genres of entertainment and encompassed all statures of stardom. I can remember the first deal that I negotiated out of the basement of my Victoria, BC home: it was a holiday party for which I secured a deposit and then rented a typewriter in order to type up a contract. Since those one-man office days, we have grown in corporate moves from Victoria to Vancouver to Nashville and finally to Orlando in 1998, and over the years I have been graced with the company of hundreds of people who have worked for and with me to help build a lifetime of memories.
As we embark upon our next 40 years, once again I would like to acknowledge and thank all of you who help to make our world go around – from our day to day business associates and valued buyers, to the talented entertainers and speakers who we are so proud to represent exclusively, to the hundreds of artists and speakers and their managers and agents who we deal with on a day to day basis.
On behalf of our dedicated team – Mike Mascioli, Joan Mascioli, Marina Castro, Erin Ambers and yours truly, I wish all of you good health and happiness for the holiday season and much success throughout the New Year. Once again, in the spirit of giving, this year, in lieu of sending greeting cards we will make a donation to the Orlando Union Rescue Mission.
