Closing Event - Denver Rocks!

What better way to top off your stay in Denver than with good food, friends, and entertainment during GFOA’s Denver Rocks! closing event on Tuesday, May 23, 2017, from 7:00 to 10:30 pm at the Colorado Convention Center. After enjoying a buffet dinner in the center’s ballroom, attendees and guests will head over to the state-of-the art Bellco Theatre for an exclusive concert by the Barenaked Ladies.   

“Gotta see the show, ‘cause then you'll know,” sings Ed Robertson on Barenaked Ladies’ chart-topping hit, “One Week.” The band has been together after nearly three decades, producing 14 studio albums, which have collectively sold more than 14 million copies, won eight Juno Awards, earned multiple Grammy nominations, a U.S. chart-topping single (“One Week”), and the theme song to one of TV’s most popular shows, The Big Bang Theory. Some of the band’s biggest hits include “Pinch Me” and “If I Had $1,000,000.”

The night is sure to be energetic and fun!

A limited quantity of tickets are still available on site at the registration desk.
