MEET DOUG PANERO
Doug Panero held his first home concert in 2012, as the paint in his new home was still drying. This began the journey that would lead to the creation of the concert production company, Doug Panero Presents, and the discovery of multiple Grammy Award-Winning artists. Not settling for just anybody, he ventured to all sorts of music spots, both live and virtual, as he has always done as a music lover, and found many cool, compelling artists who he thought deserved more attention and brought them home.
Some of the featured musicians who performed there, and in other obscure spots where Doug produced his events, when they were relatively unknown artists include Grammy Nominee John Fullbright, Grammy Winner Gregory Porter, Grammy Winner Cecile McLorin Salvant, and Margaret Glaspy, whose album, Emotions and Math, made many Best of 2017 lists. Just a few of the artists in which Doug Panero recognized great talent and potential.
Currently, Doug collaborates with the White Plains Business Improvement District to produce Rock White Plains, a huge downtown concert, Music in the Streets at Ridge Hill, and Tunes In June at White Plains Plaza. Doug Panero Presents grows and the story writes itself. The vibe from the house concerts has survived the changes: great talent, warm hospitality for artists and audience, and some terrific music presented with impeccable sound production.
See you at the next show!

Doug stumbled on Tuba Skinny, street musicians at the time, on a trip to New Orleans many years ago. A few years later they performed at his home, all six of them, plus two dogs, to celebrate his wedding to Nell, who encourages Doug every day to pursue his passion, passionately, and to always reach beyond his grasp.
