CEDAR RAPIDS, IA, May 27, 2008 — Popular recording artists, the Gin Blossoms, will headline the NSCA ExpoJam! on June 17, 2008, during InfoComm 08.

Attendees will begin the night at 6 p.m. with the Opening Reception in the Hilton Center at the Las Vegas Hilton. ExpoJam!, sponsored by Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc., will begin immediately following the reception at 8 p.m.

The Gin Blossoms strike a chord with their broad fan base. Popular hits such as “Hey Jealousy,” “Allison Road,” “Follow You Down” and “Til I Hear It From You,? are what made the band a success. Its album “New Miserable Experience? was certified quadruple platinum.

“We look forward to sponsoring this year’s ExpoJam!, making its inaugural debut at InfoComm,? said Larry Italia, vice president/general manager of Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. “There is no better way to celebrate the partnership between NSCA and InfoComm than by treating our contractors and consultants to an amazing concert by the Gin Blossoms.?

Yamaha will also provide the sound system for the concert, which includes PM5D consoles and NEXO line array system.

“Working with Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems shows the incredible support from our industry to help make the ExpoJam! tradition a continued success at its debut during InfoComm 08,? said Chuck Wilson, executive director of NSCA. “With a band like the Gin Blossoms, The One Big Night will be a great environment for networking and starting a successful week for all InfoComm attendees!?
