Paradocks Management Corporation, Chesapeake, VA, and Mainsail Entertainment, LLC, Hampton, VA, are hosting an entertainer showcase on March 3, 2008 from 6-10 p.m. The event will be held at the Paradocks East Coast Grille restaurant, 4124 Chesapeake Square Blvd., Chesapeake, VA 23321.

The event is free and open to the public.

The showcase includes more than 12 musicians / bands. These entertainers will be added to the Mainsail Entertainment, LLC roster for possible employment at one of the Paradocks East Coast Grille locations.

Paradocks operates two establishments: 801 Eden Way North, Chesapeake, VA 23320 (across from the Greenbrier Mall) and 4124 Chesapeake Square Blvd, Chesapeake 23321. Mainsail Entertainment books entertainment at both locations.

Joe Maniscalco (Norfolk), Paradocks Management Corporation's Entertainment Director, is hosting the event. "We are pleased with the response we are receiving from all musicians in Hampton Roads," explained Maniscalco. This event is an excellent opportunity for each entertainer to be seen and heard by special Paradocks guests and patrons, booking agencies and promoters, as well as convention groups.

"In addition, with technical support from Norman Harrell, AcoustEvents (Virginia Beach), we will be recording the event -- and each entertainer will receive a copy of his / her CD.

Steven Sloop is also presenting phase I of the MEONA music awards that evening at Paradocks. Many local Hampton Roads entertainers are slated for awards.
Paradocks East Coast Grille is a favorite restaurant / night spot for patrons hailing from all of Hampton Roads. An Outer Banks-themed family-oriented sports grille, Paradocks caters to families as well as those seeking happy-hour and night-time entertainment. There are both smoking and non-smoking areas as well.

A full-time, professional entertainer, Maniscalco is a talented singer / songwriter. He plays many musical instruments, including guitar, trumpet, flute, harmonica and the steel pan - a feat not many have mastered. Many of his songs showcase his Elle Minnette steel pan which he visited the Port of Spain, Trinidad/Tobago to obtain. In addition, he frequently amazes his audience by playing two trumpets - simultaneously and in harmony.
