Can you imagine playing lead guitar for Methods of Mayhem mainman/ Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee or jamming alongside KISS icon Ace Frehley and pioneering Runaways rock goddess Lita Ford in front of a live, screaming and standing-room-only crowd? For many people, this is a lifelong fantasy; at Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp, it becomes reality. From February 17th to 20th at the world-famous Atlantis, Paradise Island in The Bahamas, 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.
Over the four-day camp, counselors will kick-start campers’ hearts – and rock skills – transforming them from rock hobbyists into arena maestros. In addition to guest counselors Lee, Frehley and Ford, Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp at Atlantis will feature several of the rock star counselors from the Mark Burnett-produced VH1 Classic show, including Rudy Sarzo of Quiet Riot, Kip Winger of Winger, and renowned singer/songwriter Mark Hudson (Aerosmith), plus Alan White of YES, George Lynch of Dokken, and many others.
“The Bahamas is going to rock like never before when Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp invades Atlantis Resort with an unprecedented line-up of some of the most celebrated rockers on the planet, all there for one reason: to make rock ‘n’ roll magic by transforming amateurs into rock stars,” says Rock Camp founder/CEO David Fishof. “Where else can someone with a passion for music spend four days playing with and learning from rock icons like Tommy Lee, Ace Frehley and Lita Ford? Our Bahamas camp will be one of our most life-changing events ever produced.”
From the minute campers arrive in the Bahamas, their rock ‘n’ roll adventure begins. Campers will form their own bands; meet, jam with and receive intensive and ongoing instruction from the rock star counselors; spend over 10 hours a day in-studio jamming and creating original music under the guidance of a famous rock musician; take a variety of specialized master classes conducted by rock icons; break bread with industry insiders; and play live before a jam packed crowd at Atlantis, Paradise Island.
There are three packages – the four-day Rock Star package, and six-day Headliner and the Groupie packages – allowing campers a variety of options to tap into their inner Robert Plant.
“Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp premiered as the most watched show in VH1 Classic history for a reason,” added Fishof. “Our Atlantis camp this February will be one of our most star-studded camps ever.”
