Paul A. Mascioli
Paul is the founder and President of Mascioli Entertainment Corporation. He started his venture in Victoria, BC, Canada in 1969 as Prestige Entertainment Agencies Ltd. As the business experienced a dynamic growth period, Paul moved his offices to Vancouver. He was selected to serve as Co-chairman of Country Music Week '87, where his leadership efforts led to the Canadian Country Music Industry’s first ever, nationally televised and live awards show on the CTV Network. That year, he also won the Canadian Country Music Association's Booking Agent of the Year award.
In 1991, the company name was changed to Mascioli Entertainment Corporation, and the corporate headquarters was moved to Nashville, TN. While there, Paul orchestrated the promotional efforts and finalized the negotiations that led to major recording deals for management clients, including Lisa Brokop with Capitol Nashville, and Ian Tyson with Vanguard Records. With the addition of two publishing companies in 1993: Giovellino Music (ASCAP) and Mascioli Music, Inc. (BMI), Paul developed and implemented leadership and business strategies that were instrumental in building this company into a successful, international enterprise.
Whether dealing with managed artists or the senior representatives of national acts, Paul’s knowledge and buying power allow Mascioli Entertainment‘s clients quick decisions on availability and competitive pricing. And Paul takes great pride in the company’s strengths and ability to develop unique and innovative ideas for clients, worldwide.
In 1996, Paul’s son, Mike, joined the Nashville operation after working for five years as a booking agent in Vancouver.
Together, they moved to Orlando, Florida, in 1998, where Paul continued his active role as an artists’ manager for Mascioli Entertainment, and also joined T. Skorman Productions, Inc., serving as Senior Vice President until January 2003.
In January 2003, Mascioli Entertainment opened new offices and Mike was appointed Vice President. And in August 2009, the father & son partners purchased and moved into permanent new Orlando, Florida offices where they now conduct their world-wide talent negotiations. Together, Paul and Mike, along with their experienced sales, creative and administrative team, continue to focus on booking National Acts for their varied clients and to work in artist management, concert promotions, and event productions.
