Poolside Reception sponsored by Rocket

A fantastic evening of fun, networking and marquee entertainment begins with our pre-concert Poolside Party Starter reception. Unwind, chat with your peers and enjoy a selection of tasty hors d'oeuvres, beverages and desserts. The outdoor evening ambiance, along with great company and refreshments, are a perfect way to kick off a very special night at Edge.

Concert Encore at the Pool sponsored by Rocket

The party’s not over yet. Join us back at poolside for our Encore at Edge celebration. Enjoy more networking opportunities, entertainment, party snacks, beverages and a live performance from The Rocket Band. For several years, musicians at Rocket always seemed to find each other at company events. In 2013, the Rocket Band was officially born. Since then, more than 60 Rocketeers from all over the world have been part of this group and they are always finding new members. They have played over a dozen shows and have never had the same lineup twice!

Train Concert

After the pre-concert pool party, it’s time for the main event: an exclusive performance from the GRAMMY Award-winning band Train. These legendary rockers from San Francisco are recognized for their unique brand of riveting, roots-based pop, including global hits like “Drops of Jupiter,” “Hey Soul Sister,” “Angel in Blue Jeans” and “Cadillac, Cadillac.” And tonight it’s all for Edge attendees only. Enjoy this rare experience, and enjoy a selection of complimentary beverages, too.
