Our first stop on the coast.
This was the best view. At this point we knew the day would get even better. Out of the gray and into some sun.

This past week I had the chance to pop out to New York with Tony and Kento for both work and play. It was an eventful two and a half days of productive meetings, city explorations, good eats, good times and John Mayer’s concert at Jones Beach.
My view of the city from the Bowery. Might I add that the beds at this hotel are ridiculously comfy.
From golden televisions to a dude singing and blowing bubbles in the middle of the street. Cruising through Soho, there’s something new around every corner.
After a day trekking through the city, we finally headed out to the beach for the show.
While we cruised through the perimeter of the amphitheater, it was great to see the AKOG logos I created with John scattered amidst the tents. His “Another Kind of Green” campaign has been in full effect since creation and is making strides in the fight against global warming. It was a pleasure to be a part of the project back in February when we created the bags for his Mayercraft cruise.
14,00 fans at Jones Beach Amphitheater.
The show was incredible. The band was tighter than ever and John was having a blast. Even during a brief downpour, the performance on stage kept the crowd going with high energy, unaffected by the rain.
Tony, myself and Jeff. Stoked that he was able to come out and hang with us at the show.
For the encore performance of “Waiting on the World to Change”, John had requested that a group of his close friends jump on stage and fill in for the backup vocals… “waiting”. On top of the fact that he was in front of 14,000 JM fans, it was Tony’s first onstage appearance. You can peep my behind the scenes video here or read more at Tony’s blog on John’s site. And a few more here from the show. Enjoy!
Much thanks to John and all the friends for an unforgettable night.
