Get Over Stage-fright at Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp

Dear Rock 'n Roller,

If you’re half as excited as I am about the prospect of rocking out with the likes of Meat Loaf, Ace Frehley of Kiss, Jon Anderson of YES and over 20 more Rockstars, then you’re probably having a pretty hard time sitting still right now. And if you’re a little nervous too, don’t worry. It’s natural -- I mean, heck, performing in and of itself can be intimidating, and when you add a superstar rock musician to the mix, well, let’s just say, I sympathize. But it is because of those nerves that you need a trip to Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp.

I have yet to encounter a camper who left without feeling a whole new sense of self-confidence and a newfound empowerment to conquer the challenges in his or her day-to-day life. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never before picked up an instrument or if you’ve been playing for 30 years, there’s something to be gained from this camp. Got some words you’d like to put to music? We can help you do it -- and we’ve got plenty of professionals on hand who can make it happen. Been meaning to revisit those guitar lessons you took as a teenager? No worries: it only takes a few chords to make a great rock song.

The point is this: Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp isn’t just about rubbing elbows with famous people or showing off your guitar licks -- though of course those things do happen -- it’s about making you a better, stronger, more successful person on and off the stage. I have plenty of camper stories to prove it. Diane Birch, who attended the 2006 Hollywood camp, just released a solo album that is doing very well. One camper’s wife told me her husband’s road rage was cured by his camp experience, another camper gained the courage to take on a job managing a country band and more than one executive has told me that playing with a band helped him be a more effective manager. And one of our youngest campers, 16-year-old Yayo, is living his dream: he’s become a bona fide touring musician. His recent gig at the Whisky A Go Go brought out Robby Krieger of The Doors. He was very impressed!

If you’re still nervous or tentative about whether you should sign up for camp -- or sign up one of your loved ones -- feel free to call us at 888 Roc Band - 888 762 2263. Check out our website for all the details at The camp experience is open to people with all levels of music experience: none, some and a lot. We’ll make sure you feel at home, no matter what…and if you sign up by Friday we’ll give you a free Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp T-shirt at camp!

Looking forward to seeing you November '09 in Hollywood,

David Fishof - Producer
