An Incredible HITMAKERS & ROCKERS Camp in Music City!
Seize your musical dreams in Nashville, February 28-March 3, 2019, when Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp delivers an exhilarating opportunity for you to learn from certified multi-platinum songwriters and play in bands with world-famous rock stars!
Whether you’re a beginner, a weekend warrior, or an experienced professional, Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp puts YOU in the spotlight. Hang with musicians who know what it takes to succeed, and absorb all of their music and career tips. You’ll also jam with them as if you were in their bands!
The Nashville camp celebrates one of the biggest rock groups of all-time: JOURNEY! The legendary band’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members JONATHAN CAIN (keyboards/songwriting) and STEVE SMITH (drums) will share their insider stories about the music industry, and you’ll get to perform with Steve LIVE at one of Nashville’s hottest clubs. (Here’s a tip to prep for meeting Jonathan: Read his book. You can get it here: https://www.amazon.com/Dont-Stop-Believin-Inspired-Generations...
Extra Bonus! Campers who sign up for the Recording Package will get to record a song at Jonathan’s Addiction Recording Studio, and produced by Jonathan and his producer David Kalmusky (Journey, Vince Gill, John Oates, Hunter Hayes).
We are also thrilled to welcome guitarist extraordinaire NUNO BETTENCOURT to our Nashville camp. Nuno may be best-known as the lead guitarist for the Boston rock band EXTREME—as well as the co-writer of their massive hit, “More Than Words”—but he has also toured with Rihanna, teamed up with Jane’s Addiction frontperson Perry Farrell in Satellite Party, and was one of the five absolutely fierce guitar stars in Steve Vai’s Generation Axe 2018.
This camp also features FRANK HANNON and BRIAN WHEAT from TESLA, the Sacramento, California melodic hard-rock quintet that has sold more than 25 million albums.
And don’t forget that Nashville is Music City, so plan to have surprise rock-star guests drop in from time to time to talk to your camp band. Anything can happen at Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp!
Of course, the core of Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp is its counselors, and the Nashville camp includes bassist BILLY SHEEHAN (Mr. Big, David Lee Roth, Winery Dogs), Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member and bassist HUGH McDONALD (Bon Jovi), keyboardist PAUL TAYLOR (Winger, Alice Cooper, Steve Perry), guitarist KENNY OLSON (Kid Rock), keyboardist GARY CORBETT (Cinderella, Cyndi Lauper), and many more!
SUPER SPECIAL EVENT for Drummers! Session sensation and producer BILLY AMENDOLA—who is also the Editor of Modern Drummer magazine—will lead his renowned Drummers Master Class at the camp, where you can jam with some of Nashville’s finest percussionists, as well as experience an incredible "Drum Off."
"I GUARANTEE you will become a better musician by jamming with these seasoned pros." —David Fishof, founder, Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp.View Packages
