Tommy Moore

Tommy Moore was introduced to the music industry by his father, Woods Moore, who operated Alt’s Music store in Fort Worth, TX. After earning a degree in finance, Tommy returned to the store upon his father’s request to investigate other aspects of the music industry that might interest him. Tommy saw a need for rhythm instruments in the schools that could be made and sold inexpensively, so in 1959 he started The Rhythm Band Company. Over the next 4 decades Tommy established a number of electronic-related music companies including Kasuga International, he co-founded Hondo and Tokai USA as well as International Music Corp (IMC) with long time friend, Jerry Freed.
