The name Joey Carvello is synonymous with Disco. Joey’s impact and participation during the 1st Generation of Disco is legendary. Immediately after debuting as a Deejay in Boston at Yesterdays Disco in August of 1974 his impact not only in Boston but also nationally was resounding. He became a chart reporter to Record World and Billboard. His published charts had national impact and created Joey’s profile as a trend setter. Disco pioneer and arguably the most prolific Disco remix / producer of his time John “ TC “ Luongo ( also from Boston ) took notice and became a mentor to Carvello. With Luongo’s guidance and Joey’s passion and vision of the future of Disco as a mainstream genre of music he quickly became one of Boston’s premier Disco Deejays along with a national profile as an ambassador for Disco with the ability to pick and promote some of the biggest Disco crossover hits of all time. Carvello’s phone constantly rang with phone calls from Promotion Reps competing for a slot on Joey’s “ Top 10 “ list. Local Record Reps were constant visitors when Joey Deejayed bringing exclusive test pressings and albums also hoping that Joey would give them a spin. Over the following 4 years Carvello added residencies at the hottest and most influencial clubs in Boston including Celebration / Mirage / Future and Cache. In 1978 Joey won the most coveted Disco Deejay award : Billboard Magazine Disco Deejay Of The Year / Boston. Almost immediately after winning the award Joey became the East Coast Director of Disco Promotion for WB/RFC. It was his intro to becoming one of the most prolific Radio Promotion Executives over the past 35+ years. Joey has held Executive Promotion/A&R positions at Atlantic Records, SONY, Priority Records and TVT Records. Today Joey continues to Deejay and create Radio Promotion campaigns for new and independent artists. Joey’s tenacity over the past 6 years as a resident at Mobile Mondays at The Bowery Electric / NYC has identified him as one of the premier “ vinyl only “ deejays in and around NYC.
