Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp is proud to present its All-Star line-up for the Superstar 10th Anniversary Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp, November 7-11, 2007 in Las Vegas. The camp will feature music legends including Slash (Guns ‘n Roses/Velvet Revolver), Roger Daltrey (The Who), Joe Walsh (The Eagles), Jack Bruce (Cream) and many more! The five-day, life-changing experience offers individuals the opportunity to live out the ultimate rock ‘n’ roll dream. Registration is now open for the 10th Anniversary camp at www.rockcamp.com.
“Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp reminds me of what it used to be like when we started, when we were rough and ready and didn’t let anyone stand in the way of our dream,” said Roger Daltrey. “I feel quite passionate about it because it motivates people through music. The campers all rise to the occasion—it’s fantastic.”
The 10th Anniversary camp will be held at the MGM GRAND with campers staying at Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino, and will culminate in a live “Campalooza” concert at the legendary House of Blues. This unforgettable experience brings music lovers of any skill level together with professional rockers for the chance to share the limelight and the stage with living legends. Campers are each assigned to a band led by a rock star counselor; Highlights include writing and recording an original song, master classes taught by renowned talent and daily jam sessions with the stars. Fans, friends and families will be able to download the original songs via iTunes.
Special guests and counselors for the 10th Anniversary camp also include Vince Neil (Motley Crue), Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden), Alan White (YES), Bruce Kulick (KISS), Jeff “Skunk” Baxter (Steely Dan), Dave Ellefson (F5 & Temple of Brutality), Spike Edney (Queen), Simon Kirke (Bad Company), Kelly Keagy (Night Ranger) and acclaimed producer Mark Hudson.
“I’m proud to offer people the thrill of a lifetime, and the most exclusive, one-of-a-kind rock ‘n’ roll experience,” said David Fishof, Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp founder. “Only a Rock ‘n Roll Fantasy camper can record in Studio 2 at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, tinker on John Lennon’s piano, perform live at the House of Blues and actually go on tour opening up for Def Leppard. We’ve been rocking out for the past 10 years, and are ready for the next!”
Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp was dubbed the “Most Amazing Rock ‘n’ Roll Lifestyle Experience” by The London Times and “Brilliant” by Good Morning America. The camp has been featured on popular television sitcoms such as Ellen, where Ellen DeGeneres jammed with Bonnie Raitt and David Crosby, and in a celebrated tribute on The Simpsons where Homer goes to Fantasy Camp and jams with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Tom Petty and Elvis Costello.
The camp debuted in Miami Beach in 1997, featuring Nils Lofgren and Clarence Clemens of the E Street Band. It has since evolved into a cultural phenomenon, giving participants a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to jam and record with the greatest rock legends from Paul Stanley of KISS to Bill Wyman of The Rolling Stones.
“To be a part of Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp isn’t just a fantasy of the people who attend, it’s my fantasy too,” said Paul Stanley. “It’s a way for me to say thank you to fans. And, getting up and playing with people with such exuberance and energy is really a gift to me as well.”
“Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp was, as billed, a life-changing experience. To say that it was perfect would be an understatement,” said camper Jonathan Weiswasser. “What drew me the most was the ability to play with Bill Wyman and Jack Bruce, but I left with the fondest memories of jamming with Jon Lord, and getting to know the other counselors so well. Words really do not do it justice. The experience was nothing short of brilliant.”
The Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp concept was conceived by David Fishof, who for 25 years has produced some of the most successful and original rock tours including Ringo’s All-Starr Band for 15 years, the Dirty Dancing tour, The Monkees 20th Anniversary tour, the Happy Together tour and many others. In addition to providing an exceptional experience, Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp is proud to have raised over $250,000 and provided multiple scholarships for various charities. A recent deal had been made with Elisabeth Murdoch’s UK media company, Shine, to produce a television series based on the camp and its life-changing qualities.
