For the first time in three years, the CE Pro All-Star Band will return to CEDIA Expo for a live performance on Thursday, September 29.

The CE Pro All-Star Band at the 2019 CEDIA Expo.

The CE Pro All-Star Band will bring together some of the most talented professionals in the custom electronics industry for a 90-minute live music showcase. Covering music from a range of decades, the band will perform tunes from The Beatles, Van Morrison, Tom Petty, Foghat, Foo Fighters, Hootie and the Blowfish, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. This year’s band includes:

  • Bob Archer from CE Pro – Guitar
  • Tim Bigoness from D-Tools – Drums and lead vocals
  • Richard Charschan from AcousticSmart – Guitar
  • Jim Garrett from Harman International – Drums
  • Steve Haas from SH Acoustics – Keyboards
  • Bret Jacob from Nortek Control – Trumpet
  • Mitch Klein from Z-Wave Alliance – Bass
  • Vince Luciani from AMETEK Power Quality Solutions (SurgeX) – Guitar
  • Jason McGraw from CEDIA Expo and KBIS – Guitar
  • Rick Santiago from Indy Audio Labs – Saxophone
  • Patrick Shaughnessy from Focal Naim America – Guitar and lead vocals
  • David Silkin from Digital Sales Group Metro and DSG Distributors – Bass

Many professionals participating in the All-Star Band have spent years in the industry. They’re also excellent musicians, as many have played their entire lives.

“I’m honored to be included with this great ensemble of talent — from all parts of our industry,” says Tim Bigoness, chief marketing officer for D-Tools. “This year will be extra special. For many of us, it is a return to CEDIA Expo and a chance to reconnect with many friends and colleagues. We’ve put together a fairly ambitious set this year, and pulling it all together remotely has its challenges. Still, it is truly a labor of love.”

The CE Pro All-Star Band’s rocking reunion will occur on Thursday, September 29, 2022, at the Smart Stage. The event will follow the CE Pro BEST Project Awards ceremony, which begins at 4:00 PM. As in previous years, the concert is interactive. Attendees will be invited to sing, dance and even join the band on stage.

Individuals interested in attending CEDIA Expo 2022 from September 29 – October 1, 2022, in Dallas, TX, can register online.
