The Partner Appreciation Party at Citrix Summit San Francisco, May 7-8 was an energizing way to set the stage for the rest of the week at Summit and Synergy. And is sure to be an evening that will go down as legendary.

Citrix partners kicked it into high gear and cheered until they were hoarse as they rocked out to live music entertainment from mega-platinum alternative rock band, BUSH. After a day of intense sessions, technical deep-dives, sales and marketing strategies, attendees let their hair down at the Partner Appreciation Party. And it was a party not to be missed.

Attendees enjoyed the picturesque views of the San Francisco city skyline on the terrace of the Metreon and experienced the delightful flavors of a “taste of San Francisco” cuisine. Then the party reached a new high when BUSH took the stage with lead singer Gavin Rossdale, guitarist Chris Traynor, drummer Robin Goodridge and bassist Corey Britz with their new modern rock sound. Playing hit songs like the 2011 release “The Sound of Winter” and classics like “The Chemicals Between Us,” Rossdale’s emotive, bittersweet vocals and the group’s trademark intensity left the audience cheering for more.
