The team flocks to New-York city to meet up in person. The majority of which, having only worked remote, will see each other in person for the first time. – Oct 2nd 2018
Here is John Fortner and his legendary expressiveness.
John at the Huntsville airport.
Dominik about to take off on his first off-site team meeting and first music tech conferences.
After an extra 2 hour wait at the Montréal Airport.
Cob finally gets to take off to meet the team.
Dominik having never seen Fortner outside of a small Skype window,
figured it best to act as if a limo was waiting for him.
By limo, we meant taxi. A few of them turned us down because there were 5 of us (Eddie is riding shotgun in this picture) and they would only take 4. One taxi said he’d take us if we didn’t mind squeezing 4 adult men in the backseat.
Clearly, we don’t.
We waited for our AirBNB to be ready at the pub on the corner. Raymon (SounDAC Witness: Johnstor) met us there and joined us for food and drinks. It was great to get these 6 people together in the same place! At this point we were only missing Billy and Nate, which would only arrive the next day.
Off to check in!
Time to make ourselves at home and settle our rooms.
Patrick had the fanciest one, it had an oven in it.
After we had all claimed our beds and *ahem* kitchen futon..
we prepared for this evening’s Mondo kickoff event.
Eddie got some PeerTracks and SounDAC shirts made for the team.
Apparently, people are pretty big in Texas 😀
Here is Cob trying on a 4XL polo.
Pretty sure he can’t wear this one on stage!
Let’s double check from another angle…
yeah, nah. A tad loose at the.. everywheres.
Rooftop kick-off event for Mondo.
Open bar to facilitate better networking.
Here are Patrick and Dominik enjoying a beer.
Apparently in the T-1000’s sights.
The place really picked up as the event went on.
Great first DAY!
