ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - May 15, 2014) - Information Architects has announced the addition of long time music and entertainment icon Joe Moscheo as Director of Special Projects and member of the board of directors. Mr. Moscheo has been a fixture in the music business dating back to 1960 when the industry was still in the beginnings of becoming the big business it is today. Mr. Moscheo is still a viable force in the music business and has been an integral part of the changes and growth that have taken place having worked alongside some of the biggest names in the music and entertainment industry.
Mr. Moscheo began his career in the music business as a singer, keyboard player, and arranger for the Gospel group The Prophets, then as a member of The Imperials. In 1964 The Imperials began working with Elvis Presley, Jimmy Dean, Roy Clark, Carol Channing, Pat Boone and many other artists of that time. It is at this time Mr. Moscheo worked with Elvis Presley on his Grammy award winning albums. Then in 1969, The Imperials were invited to back Elvis Presley in Las Vegas where they continued to do so for the next 3 years.
In 1997 Mr. Moscheo was reunited through Elvis Presley Enterprise with the other performers that had worked with Elvis Presley for a big concert where the band played live to a video of Elvis performing on a 35 foot JumboTron. This show went on to tour around the world, several times, and every 5 years the estate gathers all the members back together in Memphis for a reunion show. Mr. Moscheo continues to travel throughout the world with Terry-Blackwood and The Elvis Imperials performing 50-60 concerts per year.
Mr. Moscheo has always been very active in the music "business" as well, with accomplishments including being a member of the founding council of Leadership Music. He has also served as a past President and Trustee of the Board of Governors for the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS, 'the Grammy people'). He was also a board member (and past president) of the W.O. Smith / Nashville Community Music School. He serves as a permanent board member of the GMA Board of Directors. He is one of a very few people to have been inducted, TWICE, into the GMA, Gospel Music Hall of Fame, once with The Imperials in 1998, and again in 2007, as an Individual who has contributed much time, expertise, and talent to the Gospel Music Industry.
