Joe Bonamassa - The Road To Vienna
Behind-The-Scenes - The making of 'The Road To Vienna'.
Five unique musicians from different cultures, met for the first time in Vienna. Three days later, they played a concert together.

We were given exclusive all-areas-access to create a feature-length behind-the-scenes film, capturing Joe Bonamassa, along with Lenny Castro, Arlan Schierbaum, Gerry O' Connor and Mats Wester, in their build-up to the Vienna Opera House concert on July 3rd 2012.
EPK - 'An Acoustic Evening At The Vienna Opera House'
The all acoustic show was debuted at the 46th Montreux Jazz Festival. Created in 1967 by passionate jazz fan and music visionary, Claude Nobs, it has been a concert staple for music lovers in Europe and around the world ever since.

These musicians came together as an eclectic assortment of craftsmen, of disparate world flavours, to create a musical experience that will be remembered as the 'Acoustic Event of the Decade'.
