Kustom Entertainment CEO Stan Ross has been involved in the music industry since his first day on earth!
Through the years of banking, investment firms and leading Digital Ally, Stan continued to support “startup” bands and musicians in the U.S.
In 2021, he started his own entertainment company venture, by acquiring TicketSmarter, a national ticketing platform for buying and selling tickets. He then followed that up with the creation of Kustom Entertainment Inc., an entertainment and concert production company, headquartered in Kansas City.
“Founder, Stan Ross, is no stranger to the music industry. He and his family helped define it.”
Stan’s father, Bud Ross, made his first amplifier for his own band in 1958. By 1964, he had founded Kustom Amplifiers. He was the first to mass produce amplifiers covered in roll and pleat vinyl, popularly referred to as “TuckAndRoll” naugahyde.
Artists known for using the Kustom brand include Creedence Clearwater Revival, Ronnie Milsap, Roy Clark, Sheryl Crow, Leon Russell, Johnny Cash, The Jackson 5, Carl Perkins, and The Carpenters.
The Management Team at Kustom Entertainment sets the standard for unique, customizable live experiences that maximize engagement with high-touch strategies and flawless executions. This includes large music festivals, concerts, custom live experiences, video gaming competitions and sporting events.
At 19, Stan’s passion for music became unwavering as he set out to create his own record label. Stan is a trailblazer in a myriad of industries like serving as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Digital Ally Inc. since September 1, 2005. From March 1992 to June 2005, Mr. Ross was the Chairman and President of Infinity, Inc., a publicly held oil and gas production and service company (IFNY), and served as an officer and director of each of Infinity’s subsidiaries. He resigned all of his positions with Infinity Energy Resources, Inc. in June 2005, except Chairman, and then resumed his position in December 2006 at the request of the board. From 1991 until March 1992, he founded and served as President of Midwest Financial, a financial services corporation involved in mergers, acquisitions and financing for corporations in the Midwest. However, he defaults to his love of live music and entertainment – and KUSTOM Entertainment and KUSTOM 440 was born.
