LAS VEGAS, May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Proving that there is a camp for everybody, Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp continues to offer the ultimate rock star experience with three new upcoming camps headlined by guitar virtuosos Yngwie Malmsteen, Johnny Winter, Leslie West, Robben Ford and KISS drummer Peter Criss, guitar legend Joe Satriani and The Beatles tribute band The Fab Faux. Campers will be able to reignite their passion for music at the three separate camps held in New York, Napa Valley and Las Vegas, respectively.
Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp marks its return to New York Aug. 7-13, 2013 with Campalooza headlined by Yngwie Malmsteen and features KISS drummer Peter Criss, guitarist Robben Ford, Mountain guitarist Leslie West, Johnny Winter, and Grammy Award Winning Producer for Aerosmith and John Lennon Jack Douglas. Campers will have a chance to jam and perform with the Grammy winners and epic guitar legends at BB King's in Times Square. From there, they will write and record at the Gibson Rehearsal Studios, formerly The Hit Factory, which was the recording studio for "Thriller" "Born in the USA" and many other countless hits. On the final night, campers will play at The Cutting Room, which has hosted acts ranging from David Bowie to Kid Rock to Jon Mayer. For ultimate bragging rights, campers can book an 8-hour recording package with Jack Douglas in Avatar Studios, where Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Iggy Pop, Journey and so many more have recorded.
Dispelling the myth that rock stars only drink hard alcohol and cheap beer, Rock and Roll Fantasy camp is hosting a Wine, Wisdom & Rock camp at the Louis M. Martini vineyard in Napa Valley Aug. 16-18. In addition to playing with real rock legends like Joe Satriani, campers will blend their own special Cabernet, conduct barrel tastings and receive a tour of the vineyard and winery from third-generation master winemaker Mike Martini. Louis M. Martini is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year and features legendary wines from Sonoma County, Napa Valley and Monte Rosso.
For the ultimate Beatles fan, Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp is hosting the world-famous Fab Faux camp Oct. 9-13 at its state-of-the-art facility in Las Vegas. Campers will spend either 3- or 5-days learning music's most revered catalogue, which will culminate in live performances at MGM Grand Hotel and Casino Las Vegas. Members of the Fab Faux will be on-site to give campers tips on playing songs from the Lennon/McCartney songbook as well as perform a private concert.
Previously announced, the four-day YES Fantasy Camp takes place July 14-17 in Las Vegas. YES fans will be participating in jam sessions and receiving instructions from the members of the influential rock group. Campers also will attend Master Classes with renowned musicians and then perform live with their band in front of an audience at MGM Grand Hotel and Casino Las Vegas.
