SoBe Soundcheck at Hotel Victor

Rachael Ray hosted the SoBe Soundcheck at Hotel Victor presented by Seven Daughter’s Winemakers Blend during the 2009 South Beach Food & Wine Festival. The event featured a live performance by The Cringe (whose lead singer is Ray’s husband, John Cusimano) along with a surprise guest appearance by Miami legend Gloria Estefan. Estefan was joined on stage by husband Emilio and Rachael Ray for a rousing rendition of La Bamba.

Top Chef’s Spike Mendelsohn, who took home top honors at this year’s Burger Bash, was poolside at the hotel preparing samples of his award winning burgers. Other guests included Bobby Flay and Stephanie March; Katie Lee Joel; Pat and Gina Neely of Down Home with the Neelys; Cat Cora; Cooking for Real host, Sunny Andersen; Guy Fieri; and Rocco DiSpirito, among others.
