Seven Questions with Paola Palazzo, Senior Director of Talent for Nederlander Concerts
LA has a diverse cast of characters. Whether it's the characters with stirring stories or interesting occupations or the people who are just simply characters, this town has them all. In an effort to get to know some of those characters a little better, we've created "Seven Questions with..." If you have a suggestion for a future Seven Questions subject send us an email.Today's subject is Paola Palazzo.
Paola books and promotes concerts for all exclusively promoted Nederlander venues, including The Greek Theatre, Grove of Anaheim, Pantages Theatre as well as third party facilities in California, Arizona and Nevada. A 20 year veteran of the music industry, Paola has previously worked for House of Blues Concerts, where she booked talent for the Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles and venues across the West Coast, and Creative Artists Agency (CAA) where she served as a music agent.
Paola, who says she'd "love to book either Metallica or Aerosmith at the Greek," took some time out from her busy schedule to exchange emails with LAist to talk music business, her venues, the upcoming summer concert season and her awesome job.
