“Oracle Unplugged”

Concert at the House of Blues

As we close the curtains on our first annual Oracle Industry Connect, we invite you to join us for an electric evening of world-class entertainment, food and drink at the legendary House of Blues.

The very first House of Blues opened its doors in a historic property in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1992 as a pulsing center of Blues, Rhythm and Blues, Gospel, Jazz and Roots-based Rock & Roll and outstanding delta-inspired cuisine.

This year we are thrilled to present American Pop-punk band the Gin Blossoms, and Jermaine Paul, acclaimed winner of “The Voice” as our musical entertainment.

About Jermaine Paul

Singer / songwriter Jermaine Paul, acclaimed winner of NBC’s “The Voice,’ is ready to reach new heights with the release of his upcoming album “Make Love Save the World.” At the age of 15, Paul joined the pop quartet 1Accord, and signed to Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal’s record label, T.W.Is.M Records. Paul has toured the globe, performed as an opening act for Shaq, and performed backup vocals for Mary J. Blige, Brandy, Blackstreet, Kelly Price, Corey Rooney, Rodney Jerkins, and Joss Stone.

About Gin Blossoms

The Gin Blossoms’ indelible jangle-pop sound broke onto the music scene in contrast with of the early 90’s era of hair bands and grunge music superstars like Nirvana. In 1989 the Gin Blossoms qualified to play at the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas, were dubbed the “Best Unsigned Band in America,” and invited to perform on MTV’s New Music Awards in New York City.

Their breakout record “New Miserable Experience” in 1992 marked their official rise to international fame and the singles “Hey Jealousy,” “Allison Road,” “Until I Fall Away,” “Mrs. Rita,” and “Found Out About You” ensured the band remained on the charts continuously for three years. Their performance for Oracle Industry Connect is just one of the band’s many stops during a worldwide tour of over 100 cities, a 5 Artist rock cruise and hints of a brand new album.

We look forward to celebrating with you!
