FCW Insider: Government IT rocks

The 1105 Government Information Group, which publishes FCW, hosted its annual GIT Rockin' event last week. This is a classic battle of the bands, with one difference: Each band includes members of the governnment information technology (GIT) community.


The winner of this year's event was Cobb, a rock group anchored by information technology experts from Touchstone Consulting and the Virginia Interoperability Coordinator’s Office. Its members are Matt Davis, Corbett Ervin, Steve Snyder and Steve Young. The event was emceed by former FCW Insider Christopher Dorobek.


The other finalists were the Eddie Becker Band (Omniplex, Systek, Lockheed Martin), Nameless Droogs (CACI, Science Applications International Corp., Computer Sciences Corp.), Tom and the Rhodes Squallers (ManTech) and Wes Tucker and the Skillets (U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, Northrop Grumman).


Here are some pics from the event. I'll post more as they become available.
