We knit we bake we rock!

Last Friday we had a bit of a company outing as it turns out 3 of our staff are rather hard core rockers! 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. There were loads of us there from Xero – dressed up in our rocker gear supporting our very own rock legends. Turns out Owen is a champion air guitarist and walked away with a trophy for his efforts!
