We knit we bake we rock!

Dave (interaction designer) had a dream to bring a rock concert to Wellington for ‘Rocktober’ so rustled up a band of old colleagues and new to present the Golden Axes at a DressUp & RockOut party to raise money for the Cancer Society.

Dave cajoled Craig (CTO & drums) and Ross (developer & rhythm guitar) to join other band members from IT companies around Wellington and after 6 weeks practicing they brought the house down and raised over $1000 for the Cancer Society.
