Every entertainment company that features live bands claims to be “not your typical wedding band”. At L.I. Paramount, it just happens to be an accurate statement.

L.I. Paramount has been in business since 1993, and has provided live entertainment at thousands of weddings and private functions. The owners of the company, Gus St. Angelo and David Clark, pride themselves on creating a live band experience that is truly unique, mainly by avoiding certain wedding band stereotypes, conduct, and even repertoire that can cause some potential brides and grooms to avoid choosing a live band in the first place.

L.I. Paramount features bands that are led directly by the owners of the company. Gus St. Angelo and his band Arcadia, as well as David Clark and The Renegades, both feature 8 pieces and a wide assortment of musical options for the ceremony and cocktail hour. While there are a few nice features on the main web site including some audio samples and downloadable song lists, you will be able to actually see and hear the groups in a live showcase format, enabling you to meet the band leaders directly. From the time you book the band until the day of your wedding, you will be working directly with the band leaders themselves, customizing your musical needs and utilizing their expertise as well as their vast knowledge and experience with many of the Tri State area’s finest catering establishments.

L.I. Paramount also offers specialty musicians such as Classical Ensembles and Jazz Ensembles for your ceremony and/or your cocktail hour.

Visit their web site at www.liparamount.com or call the Jericho office, 516.932.BAND (2263) and speak with Gus and David directly to create a truly unique and unforgettable musical experience.

Dave Clark and the Renegades

From Billy Joel to Barry White, Dave Matthews to Donna Summer, Sinatra to Sting, Swing to Studio 54, Tony Bennett to Talking Heads, Gershwin to Grateful Dead, even ABBA to AC/DC!

David Clark is the band leader and the owner of L.I. Paramount. As an industry veteran, he enjoys taking a very “hands-on” approach to the music and the pacing of the whole affair. Every detail, every musical nuance, every request is handled directly by him from the time of booking right up until the day of the function. You will have the ability to tailor the music at your affair and be as specific as you wish!

Gus St. Angelo and Arcadia

Whether its todays most popular artists like Coldplay, Kings Of Leon, Dave Matthews, Jack Johnson, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Black Eyed Peas, Alicia Keys or classic icons like... Sinatra, Elvis, The Beatles , The Rolling Stones, Billy Joel, Elton John, Bon Jovi, U2, Madonna, Aretha Franklin. Arcadia not only covers it all, it sounds like the original, and sometimes even better!

Gus St. Angelo, the bandleader and owner of L.I. Paramount will work with you to incorporate your song choices and offer suggestions and guidance, while utilizing Arcadia’s ability to fill a dance floor; connecting with everyone in the room from the moment your guests enter to the final note of the last dance.

We had the pleasure of having Gus St. Angelo and Arcadia perform at our wedding this summer. They were the BEST, most amazing band we have ever heard. They were truly fantastic. The amount of people that called/texted after the wedding (even months later) to rave about Arcadia was ridiculous-- people are still talking about them! They made our day absolutely perfect. The dance floor was full the entire night with people singing, dancing, and having a great time. They had everyone moving from age 7 to 80+! Gus was wonderful to work with and the process was a breeze. Not only were they incredible performers with a remarkable sound and personality, they are professional, kind, responsive... Just all around perfect! Many, many thanks to Gus and the members of Arcadia for making our wedding so memorable!

I just wanted to thank Gus and the entire Arcadia band for a wonderful performance at my wedding on Saturday night... Everyone was blown away by how amazing you guys were! The mixture of songs you played was spot on and the fact that you went out of your way to learn those extra songs for us was so special to us! My father LOVED the surprise intro to his speech and it really added something unique for the two of us to remember always. I can't thank you enough for going that extra mile for us. I had the most wonderful day and you guys were a huge part of that, so thank you!

Gus St Angelo and the whole Arcadia band made our wedding! They were AWESOME. We had provided Gus with only a short list of 'must plan' and 'nice to have' songs prior to our reception, but they knocked it out of the park. I couldn't have set up a more perfect playlist if I handpicked every song. The band had great range and sounded exactly like the original. We are still getting compliments! The highlight of our night was when the band came on for an encore of Shout. The dance floor went nuts! I would give Arcadia 10 stars if I could

Did you ever dream of a party of a lifetime! The venue is of utmost importance and so is the food, but you went to too many affairs already not to know that the band is what really makes that memorable reception.
With that in mind let me describe my daughter’s wedding where the locale’s manager calls a day after the wedding asking information about this band for the purpose of ‘all their future event recommendations’; though the price of the band is reasonable, let me say the place is not inexpensive!
‘Wow – What a band!’, ‘Never heard a band like that!’ Those are just a few of the comments we’ve gotten from our guests after our daughter’s August 4th Wedding.
This band is incredible – their voices, their song selections and their warmth and professionalism make them one of a kind. They never were too loud that our guests couldn’t talk, they played songs that appropriately spanned the generations, they played and sang unbelievable songs during the break (Stand by Me, White Rabbit, All You Need Is Love; again, that was during their break!) and Gus went out of his way to sing during the actual ceremony!
Sure venues are important and so is food and flowers but only with a band like Arcadia can you and your guests ‘truly’ have a real blast!
Thank you for giving us and our guests an unforgettable time!

Love and Best Wishes to You All,


THEY ARE THE GREATEST!!!!

After seeing Gus and Arcadia at their showcase, by the time the first song finished, we knew they were the perfect band for us. 2 months later, I still have people telling me how great Arcadia was. During the party, I had a big music guy who loves Crosby, Stills and Nash come up to me and said "Not only are they playing Crosby Stills and Nash, but they are playing it WELL!".

Highly, highly, recommend!!!

We booked Arcadia for our wedding. After going to their showcase, we were sold and had to have them. They were AMAZING and had our guests on the dance floor for the entire night. So many of our guests told is our wedding was the best they've been to, and followed up with "the band was amazing!" They played everything from Billy Joel and Bon Jovi to Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Coldplay. My dad picked the father/daughter dance song and worked with Gus to make it extra special. Gus took the time to talk to my dad on the phone and listen to exactly what my dad wanted. All of my ceremony music was custom chosen and the band did it perfectly and beautifully. Highly highly recommended!!

Gus St. Angelo and Arcadia rocked our wedding! One of the best decisions we made during wedding planning was choosing them to play at our reception. Gus was always responsive to my emails and questions. The band had everyone dancing all night and the compliments started coming from our guests within the first 20 minutes! After the wedding, I must have gotten at least 5 emails from my engaged friends in the NY area asking for a referral. Thank you for making our wedding so memorable, Gus and Arcadia!

We booked arcadia after hearing them at my brother and sister in law's wedding a year earlier. They did not disappoint. In fact - they may have only gotten better with time. Gus was great to work with and was very accommodating. We chose "you're my best friend" by Queen as our first dance. Gus re-learned the song and rocked it!

They put on a great Hora as well and really all of the songs they played were spot on. We got SO many compliments from our guests on the music and I can't really remember most people in their seats - everyone was on the dance floor the whole night.

They say the music is one of the most important aspects of a wedding and they are right - Gus and Arcadia helped make our wedding a fantastic / perfect night!!!

We would recommend them 1000%!

I cant tell you the incredible feedback we got from so many quests. All said NEVER saw people dance the entire night all ages even people who never leave their seats were up.. From the entrance to the finale it was a most special night. So my advice is look no furthur because you simply cant do better.
