Brett and I attended the Control4 “Rockstar” party the Friday before CEDIA 2008. The adventure started with an “All access” pass and a bus ride to the EXDO Event Center. 

When we arrived, there was a big red carpet, paparazzi, and screaming fans! The guy in the stripe suit did interviews as we walked in. He snagged me for an interview and said, “Sarah Palin, what brings you to our party today?” Needless to say, I am not one of her fans! But after I got over that fact, it was pretty funny. We even saw it on the big screen later inside.

Instantly, we walked in and heard the band. They were energetic and played some great music.

It was nice to get to put some faces with the friendly people behind the phones. This is Nikki, our favorite Inside Sales Assistant! John and I also hit it off—the marketing guru’s we are. 

Brett goes on stage to receive our Control4 MVP award!

After drinks, and mingling, the real interesting part began. Yes, that’s right… anyone could dress up for a selection of costumes and be a “Rockstar”. Yes, those words were used loosely for some. But, actually, a surprising few really rocked the stage!

The evening ended with some more music (from the actual band). Oh, yes, and airbrushed tatoos… but no photo of that for now! A special thank you to Control4 for a great event! Looking forward to CEDIA 2009!!
