Join The Conversation







Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp is proud to partner with Rock Superstar, Gene Simmons of KISS to produce the "GENE SIMMONS ROCK CAMP." What makes this camp unique from the rest is the opportunity to receive intensive training that Gene personally gives each band and individual who attends. At the previous camp that Gene attended he was able to get every band writing original songs and propelled the participants to higher levels of musicianship. His professionalism and 40 years of entertaining audiences all over the world was taught to each and every person who attended the October 2012 camp from the beginners to advanced.

"Having Gene Simmons spend so much time with us - speechless. This was a lot of fun and a great experience." -Bill M.- Past Camper-Gene Simmons Camp, Oct 2012

"Gene was so generous with his time and I learned more from him than I ever thought I could. I can't wait to go back." -Julie W. Past Camper, Gene Simmons Camp, Oct 2012

What many of you may not realize is that Gene Simmons actually discovered Van Halen and many other bands in his early years of scouting talent around the Hollywood music scene for his record labels. His business knowledge and musical talent has sustained his band KISS and this year the band is favored to enter the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. "Gene Simmons Family Jewels" aired seven seasons on the popular network A&E and become the station's second highest rated series.

Gene and his special guest friends guarantee a true fantasy come true but more importantly you will learn the secret behind successful songwriting, performing, musicianship and the ins and out of music business from the master marketer himself.

The Opening Act package is your chance to immerse yourself into Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy camp without the pressure of knowing an instrument. Gain insight into the music industry, get introduced to the joy of playing musical instruments, singing and songwriting all while being able to meet some of Rock 'n' Roll's most famous musicians.
