Can you imagine playing lead guitar for front man Roger Daltrey of The Who in front of a live, screaming and standing-room-only crowd at an iconic rock venue? For many people, this is a lifelong fantasy; at Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp, it becomes reality. From January 12th to 17th in New York City, rock enthusiasts and amateur musicians from all walks of life will have the opportunity to interact with, learn from, jam with and perform alongside their idols as part of the rock camp that became the centerpiece of VH1 Classic’s new series – also called Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp – which debuted October 16th as the most watched series premiere in network history.
Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp New York City will feature several of the rock star counselors from the Mark Burnett produced VH1 Classic show, which, according to the New York Post’s Michael Starr, “far exceeded VH1’s expectations.” With the help of special guest counselor Roger Daltrey, one of the most iconic lead singers in rock ‘n’ roll history, rock greats the likes of Grammy Award-winning mega-producer Phil Ramone, Tommy James, Simon Kirke of Bad Company, Rudy Sarzo of Quiet Riot, Kip Winger of Winger, renowned singer/songwriter Mark Hudson, and many others, will be transforming campers from rock hobbyists into arena maestros.
Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp was founded by David Fishof in 1997 as the ultimate music experience for the amateur or aficionado, pairing music lovers of all levels together with rock icons for a first-hand immersion in the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle. Camp attendees move from spectator to band member, sharing the stage – and limelight – with rock icons for an once-in-a-lifetime experience. More details available at www.rockcamp.com.
