Editor's Note: It's a Wrap! has been re-relocated to the Howard Street Tent, 4 p.m. Thursday.
Get ready to let loose at the last official event of Oracle OpenWorld: It's a Wrap! Running from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Howard Street Tent, the party is your chance to unwind at the end of the conference. You won't want to miss the crowd-pleasing tunes provided by rock band The Five Hundreds.
The San Francisco-based band plays a mix of classic, indie, and punk rock, with a repertoire that includes hits from the likes of the Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, the Clash, and the Ramones. Oracle's own Tom Geck, who sings and plays rhythm guitar, leads the band. His bandmates include Marco Baroz on lead guitar, Stuart Burr on drums, and Brian Mellow on bass guitar.
Geck, an events manager at Oracle who works with exhibitors as part of the Oracle OpenWorld team, promises songs that show attendees can dance and sing along to.
"We're going to close out the week," says Geck. "It's a chance for everyone to let their hair down and celebrate the end of the conference." So if you're ready for a little bit of rock and roll, head to the Howard Street Tent on Thursday afternoon for Geck and his self-described "fun party band."
