CEDIA Expo announced the return of the CE Pro All-Star Band. For the first time in three years, the CE Pro All-Star Band will return to CEDIA Expo for a live performance. The long-awaited reunion will kick off after the conclusion of the CE Pro BEST Project Awards gala on Thursday, Sept. 29.

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 CE Pro All-Star 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

  • Jason McGraw from CEDIA Expo and KBIS — Guitar
  • Rick Santiago from Indy Audio Labs — Saxophone

  • David Silkin from Digital Sales Group Metro and DSG Distributors — Bass

“I’m honored to be included with this great ensemble of talent – from all parts of our industry,” said 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.”

“For me, performing with CE Pro All-Star band is one of the show’s highlights,” noted Dave Silkin, president and chief operating officer for Digital Sales Group Metro/DSG Distributors. “Something magical happens every time we get together. I’m confident this year will be our best performance yet.”

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