“I met David Fishoff in New York, and visited one of his early Fantasy Camps. I felt the joy of the campers, all getting a chance to experience a little slice of their dream come true. Last year Dave and I participated, and felt so rewarded that we are back again…and this time with the great John Oates. This is for musicians of all ages and skill levels. It’s big fun for everyone. See you in LA" Kevin Cronin

Formed in 1967, REO Speedwagon cultivated a following during the 1970s and achieved significant commercial success throughout the 1980s. Hi Infidelity (1980) contained four US Top 40 hits and is the group's best-selling album, with over 10 million copies sold.
Over the course of its career, the band has sold more than 40 million records and has charted 13 Top 40 hits, including the number ones "Keep On Loving You" and "Can't Fight This Feeling".
Daryl Hall and John Oates, often referred to as Hall & Oates, have sold an estimated 40 million records, making them the best-selling music duo in history. They are best known for their six No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100: "Rich Girl", "Kiss on My List", "Private Eyes", "I Can't Go for That (No Can Do)", "Maneater", and "Out of Touch", as well as many other songs which charted in the Top 40 including the single "You Make My Dreams". In total, they had 34 chart hits on the US Billboard Hot 100, seven RIAA platinum albums, and six RIAA gold albums. In 2003, Hall and Oates were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Steve Ferrone is the drummer of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Ferrone met guitarist Mike Campbell of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers when the two played a show with George Harrison as part of his Hara and the Hijack band at Royal Albert Hall. He began recording with Tom Petty for the Wildflowers album, released late in 1994, with his first live Heartbreakers gig on 28 February 1995 in Louisville, Kentucky. Ferrone thoroughly enjoyed his time with the Heartbreakers: “Everyone should have an experience like ‘The Heartbreakers’ in their musical life; creativity, passion, honesty, integrity, and a lot of fun.”
Tom Petty notched 22 entries on the Billboard 200 and dozens of hits on Billboard’s rock and pop charts. Petty scored a record 28 top 10 hits on the Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart, more than any other act in the chart’s 36-year history.
