NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The world's premier online site for live rock concert performances and memorabilia, announces its acquisition of memorabilia and merchandise from Tom Moffatt Productions. Included in the purchase were all intellectual property and copyrights associated with these remarkable assets. Memorabilia from the Hawaiian concert promoter's archive joins the Vault's already enormous live-concert audio and poster collections.
Tom Moffatt Productions has been Hawaii's premier concert production company since the late 1950s when the Michigan native made his DJ debut in Hawaii. Moffatt soon expanded beyond radio into concert promotion and production. By 1966, Moffatt, then expert in arranging and promoting concerts throughout the Hawaiian Islands, brought the Rolling Stones to Hawaii, and there followed a long list of music greats from Bill Haley's Comets, Bob Marley, Aretha Franklin, Jane's Addiction and the Yardbirds to Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson, Cyndi Lauper and The King, Elvis Presley. Labeled the Showman of the Pacific in his autobiography of the same name, Moffatt has amassed a huge archive of memorabilia. – CelebrityAccess staff writers.
