As MD of Xero Australia, I find myself taking to the stage quite a bit – especially at events like Xerocon.
And while I do enjoy getting up there to share news, views and ideas about Xero and the customers we work with, nothing quite beats the feeling of taking to the stage in a different guise: with a guitar, a mic and my fellow musos who make up the Xero band.
An event like Xerocon deserves a big performance, and judging by the buzz of the crowd – and the frenetic activity on the dance floor – our humble band did an awesome job of bringing Xerocon to a close in a big way.
We played a solid mix of classics spanning a range of tempos and genres, giving our audience of over 1,000 lots to choose from. Check out some highlights from our performance over on Xero’s Vimeo channel.
I’m just one part of this musical outfit, so have to give a big shout out to all the partners who joined me and the Xero band on stage. We were pleased to jam with the following partners:
Scott Kay – Hudson Financial
James Solomons – EFS Strategic/Xero
Shayne Lowe – Details Business Services
Mitch Uzelac – MU Business Solutions
Wayne Triplett – Wise Click Business Services
Michelle Harrison – Cloud-based Consultants
Brent Thompson – Cloud-based Consultants
Larissa McKay – Abacus Business Solutions
Tim Munro – Change Accountants
Simon Kay – Accounting Contractor
Big thanks must also go out to my Xero band mates: Joe Salvati, Andy Whitelaw, Nick Hugo-Hamman, Tom Lee Richards and Kevin Wood. These guys sure know how to rock and roll. (Special mention to Kevin who blew us all away with his inspired rendition of the Metallica classic ‘Enter Sandman’!)
