What Happens in Vegas: Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp Finds a Home

Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp, the popular traveling band camp that provides amateur and aspiring musicians the opportunity to jam with famous rock stars has found a permanent home, in where else – Las Vegas.

 

Founded back in 1997, Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp has typically been held six times a year  in different cities including New York, Philadelphia and London. However starting this October, the camp will be setting up shop permanently in Prince Harry‘s preferred habitat for drunken nakedness.

 

Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp is the brainchild of former Monkees manager and tour producer David Fishof and since it’s founding back in 1997, the camp has given over 7,000 rock fans and aspiring musicians the once in a lifetime opportunity to meet and jam with their heroes. Camp participants live the “rock star lifestyle,” jamming, gigging and recording with legendary musicians while also learning valuable insights into the music business.

 

In Vegas, Fantasy Camp will occupy a permanent home at the MGM Grand. Some of the rock legends on tap to appear at upcoming camps include Gene Simmons, Roger Daltrey, Alice Cooper and Sammy Hagar.

 

“What I love about Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp,” said Daltrey speaking to Reuters, “Is watching these people learn so much in such a short space of time and having fun.”

 

Beyond just giving you the chance to rub elbows with the likes of Alice Cooper, Fantasy also offers counselor-led courses on guitar, bass, drums, and songwriting.

 

Okay so it all sounds good, what what’s the price tag you may be wondering?

 

An all inclusive band camp with hotel, meals, instruments and the chance to perform live at the MGM Grand and hang out with Rog or Gene will run you about $9,500.
