SOUNDS OF SEATTLE
Featuring Jerry Cantrell (Alice in Chains), Kim Thayil (Soundgarden) and Dave Krusen (Pearl Jam/Candlebox)
Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp Set for February 17-20, 2022
In addition to jamming and learning from an array of talent, attendees will play public performances at the legendary venues The Viper Room and The Whisky-A-Go-Go in Hollywood. Campers can reserve their spot now at Rock Camp’s website. Mentor Dave Krusen (Pearl Jam, Candlebox) will be jamming with the campers on Sunday, February 20th at the famous Whisky-a-Go-Go at 7:30 pm.
Returning to the camp for a record third time is Alice in Chains’ Jerry Cantrell. The Guitarist had quite a memorable experience at the last camp he attended. After meeting two AIC fans and relating a story about a stolen guitar he had received from Eddie Van Halen 19 years before, the dedicated duo tracked the guitar down and helped Cantrell retrieve it!
Of the fortuitous meeting, Rock Camp Founder David Fishof exclaims, “We are so excited to have Jerry back on this year’s camp. Witnessing the two campers listening to Jerry’s story of the stolen guitar and then hearing how they tracked down the thief and Jerry was able to get his prized possession back, it was definitely a highlight from that camp for all of us.”
At the signature Rock Camps, participants form a band where they are then mentored by their rock star counselor and rehearse songs with the special guests. Some of the rockstar mentors for this Seattle influenced camp include heavy hitters like Stephen Perkins (Jane’s Addiction, Porno for Pyros), Mike Kroeger (Nickelback), Peter Klett & Adam Kury (Candlebox), Joel Hoekstra (Whitesnake, Trans-Siberian Orchestra), Tommy Black (Scott Weiland and the Whildabouts), Britt Lightning (Vixen) and many more. Throughout the four days, campers will experience masterclasses, Q&A sessions and themed jam rooms, before it all culminates with a live performance before an all-ages crowd at the world-famous Whisky a Go Go, in Hollywood on Sunday, February 20, 2022.
A first-time mentor at Rock Camp, Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil said, “The past few years have been unusually difficult and at times truly bizarre for the nation and world in general, and for the music industry and rock bands in particular. I am super excited about the opportunity to connect and re-engage with fellow musicians and fans at the Rock ‘n Roll Fantasy Camp.”
Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp was created 25 years ago to provide real people the once-in-a-lifetime experience of connecting and jamming with their musical heroes. The Camp has provided unforgettable memories, advice and feedback for attendees worldwide. Camp events span over four jam packed days where campers join a band mentored by today’s top touring musicians, and work up to final performances with the headliner rockstars at legendary venues from Abbey Road Studios in London, to Hollywood’s Whisky a Go Go, to the Atlantic resort in The Bahamas.
