Not only did the Wilson sisters lead the band, they wrote the songs and played the instruments too, making them the first women in rock to do so. Heart continued topping the charts through the '80's and '90's with huge hits like "These Dreams," "Alone," "What About Love," "If Looks Could Kill," "Never," and a string of other hits that showcased the sisters' enormous talents as musicians, singers and songwriters.

What happens at Camp?
Rock and Roll Fantasy camp is a fully interactive, participatory camp with a non-competitive atmosphere. There's no audition here! Whatever your instrument---be it voice, guitar, bass, keyboards, drums, etc!---we will make sure you can make a meaningful contribution.
Simply fill out our questionnaire and we will place you accordingly: in a band with other like-minded, similarly skilled fantasy campers all ready to rock. You will be contacted by a professional touring musician prior to camp to discuss your skill level and answer any musical questions you may have, so that we may put you in the perfect band. They will also be able to give you insight into how things work at camp, and give you some tips and pointers to insure the best experience possible. Whatever your level of proficiency---from lead guitar to rhythm guitar to air guitar!---you'll find your abilities and confidence grow as you rehearse under the constant guidance of one of our amazing rock star counselors such as Gary Hoey, Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath) and many more!
These master musicians won't simply coordinate your band, they'll inspire you in a series of intimate master classes on your instrument, stage presence, and everything rock and roll, along with tales from the road and our newest class, THE ROUNDTABLE, where you can bring YOUR original song to work on with our incredibly talented and skilled rock star counselors. You will prepare for your jam session with our incredible headliners as well as your two live performances.
There will be Q&A's with our headliner and rock star counselors, parties, catering, your road crew and so much more! In the upcoming days you will jam live on stage with Buddy Guy, Nancy Wilson of Heart, and Chris Layton of Stevie Ry Vaughan's Double Trouble; take photos, and get your memorabilia signed by them as well.View Packages
