AMAZING is the only way to describe our first ever Rock Camp at Foxwoods Resort Casino. Right from the start campers were introduced to the 4,000 seat Grand Theatre with a full stage that was set up with lights and sound. This is where they would be jamming with Roger Daltrey and performing their final concert with their rock star counselors and fellow campers. This was the fantasy above of all other fantasies. Even the media agreed, click hereto read their reaction.
It was Gary Hoey who said it best, “I have had to play bars and strip clubs when I first started my career and many of these campers' first gig ever was in this beautiful GRAND THEATRE”. The fantasy didn’t stop there and the camp just kept getting better and better with visits by Darlene Love, Simon Kirke, all the amazing rock star counselours and finally Roger Daltrey. Raising over $100,000 for Roger's charity, Teen Cancer America, this camp was nothing short of a homerun.
"You and your staff did an outstanding job and I absolutely had the time of my life!! RRFC was energizing, inspirational, exhilarating, incomparable, impressionistic, educational, encouraging, magical and surpassed whatever I may've imagined! Superb talent was abounding; however, the guidance, expertise and caring attitude of our counselors, coupled with the hospitality of the entire staff and the camaraderie everyone shared, by virtue of the driving common denominator, a pervasive passion for music, complemented the overall experience."
You will not want to miss our next jam at Foxwoods Resort Casino with Joe Perry, Steve Morse, Lou Gramm, and over 15 other rockers January 15-18, 2015.
I also want to thank all of the campers who purchased Joe Perry’s book; it landed on the New York Times best-seller list at number 7!
