Exclusive Coverage of the Ruby Sofie Hotel Jam Session

We couldn’t believe how great this jam session turned out to be! Roughly 90 musicians and music lovers joined us for our Ruby Sofie Hotel Jam Session in Vienna in January. Here’s our exclusive review.

Musicians, music and participants

Honestly, we didn’t expect to host such an amazing musician crowd! There were musicians from a lot of different countries: Austria (obviously), but also Italy, Slovakia, the USA and Colombia.

Singers, drummers, keyboard players, violinists, bassists, percussionists and Djembe players, synthie wizards, beatboxers and so on.

And now imagine all of those musicians in one room, mashing all those influences into one delicious mix of music. Magical.

Ruby Sofie Hotel Jam Session – The jams

So, we recorded some of the jams here and you can judge for yourself:
How about some relaxed chill sound featuring some violin?
(Dear gentleman on the violion, we’d love to know who you are!).

Mayo showed of some nice little guitar soloing… playing an Ibanez guitar over his Axe FX.

And the obvious funk final featuring almost everyone in the room! HA!

Some people preferred to chillax a little and get ready for the great finale!
