Harmonix and PAX East celebrated Rock Band's 10th anniversary at the House of Blues on Friday night.

The Boston-based game company showcase brought attendees up on stage to demo Rock Band VR — which is exactly what it sounds like — and Rock Band 4 before handing the live mic over to North Shore-bred, four-piece, Tigerman WOAH. Guests also got a sneak peek at Harmonix's SingSpace, a new Samsung VR experience where karaoke gets a major upgrade.

Needless to say — Rock Band's made some advancements in the last 10 years.
