To jam with the CE Pro All-Star Band all you need to do is post a video to Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #CEProAllStarBand.

A big part of the custom installation industry is its general love for music. 

Many professionals within the industry at one time or another entertained at some level, with aspirations of being the next Eddie Van Halen, Mick Jagger or Dave Grohl. 

Unfortunately, few make it to the levels of Van Halen, The Rolling Stones or the Foo Fighters, but during CEDIA Expo 2019 there is an opportunity for industry professionals to combine the worlds of rock-and-roll and custom electronics. 

During the annual trade event, which takes place this September in Denver, Colo. on Sept. 10-14, CE Pro is reforming the CE Pro All-Star Band.

Featuring manufacturer's reps, manufacturers, integrators and even CE Pro staff members, the CE Pro All-Star band will play a mix of classic rock and country. The jam session takes place on Thursday, Sept. 12 immediately following the announcement of this year's BEST Award winners.

As part of the band's set, CE Pro is asking those who sing, play guitar, drums or keyboards to join the band on stage. 

Using either Instagram or Twitter, those interested in jamming with the band just need to upload a video of themselves performing and use the hashtag #CEProAllStarBand.
