Music Jam

Bring an instrument (or your voice) and let’s make music!

Many Rails developers are also musicians. Whether you play jazz, rock, blues, pop, or whatever the case may be, come along and meet and play with other musical developers. If you can’t bring an instrument, stop by anyway. There might be extras.

Now that was fun! I’m already budgeting for RailsConf 2011—and thinking of different songs to play.

I really enjoyed the music jam! It was better than bands at most bars, and it was so cool to see programmers I know in one context, just completely rock out in another context.

I took some pictures and recorded videos of the songs from the latter half of the evening, which you can see on my blog railsperformance.blogspot.com

It also inspired me to pick up my guitar and learn a few of these jam songs so I can rock out next year. Thanks for organizing it, it was a blast. -John

Great show, I didn’t know you guys are rockstars as well. Also, Antek Piechnik made some awesome photos: www.flickr.com/photos/piech.... :)

Great fun, as always. There was some real great talent this year. Thank Ron for your effort and dedication.

The Jam is something that I always look forward to.

Great fun. Excellent way to meet folks and do something non-tech for a few hours. Mad skillz displayed by Ron, David, Chad, and everyone else whose names I didn’t catch. Thanks also to those who took and posted photos.

Looking forward to it!

Was at the jam at Railsconf ‘08 and had a blast just enjoying the tunage (and sharing with my wife via MacbookPro webcam).

This time, I’m local and will bring my Michael Kelly acoustic/electric bass.

Best idea ever! Looking forward to it.

Anyone have an extra guitar? And, can someone print out the lyrics to Freebird?
