Presented by JBL and produced by David Fishof Presents, the 2006 Rock and Roll
Fantasy Camp will host numerous all-star rock legends, including Roger Daltrey (The Who), Cheap Trick (Rick Nielsen, Robin Zander, Tom Petersson and Bun E. Carlos), Mickey Hart (Grateful Dead), Dickey Betts (the Allman Brothers, Dickey Betts and Great Southern), Neal Schon (Journey), Mickey Thomas Starship), and many more. The camp will take place in Los Angeles from February 16 to 20, 2006. Over the course of five days and nights, participants will have the opportunity to learn from, practice, jam and hang out with some of the
world’s greatest rock musicians and songwriters. No experience is necessary, and all musical levels are welcome.
Paul Bente, president of JBL Consumer Products, says, “JBL is extremely proud to present the 2006 Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp. JBL and rock 'n' roll have always gone together. More professional musicians, recording engineers and touring sound companies rely on JBL loudspeakers than any other brand to convey music the way it was meant to be heard. We would like to thank all the additional sponsors and the artists for supporting the 2006 Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp, which will offer participants a unique opportunity to experience all the musical intensity and excitement of rock 'n' roll. It should be an unforgettable experience for everyone!”
Enthusiasts who sign up for the camp will participate in jam sessions and play songs with the celebrity musicians at a world-class professional recording studio and rehearsal space. Campers may attend seminars with musicians and top music industry executives, have meals and socialize with the stars, and participate in a Battle of the Bands. For five intense days and nights, participants will enjoy the recording, touring and fantasy life of a rock legend—all leading up to playing live onstage with their idols in a special performance at the House of Blues in Los Angeles.
JBL will also be giving away $50,000 worth of prizes. In addition, Gibson Guitar will bring its collection of Gibson and Epiphone guitars and basses, which may be used by the campers. The guitars will be signed by the artists and auctioned for charity. The Learning Channel will air a two-hour TV special about the 2006 Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp on February 22, 2006, from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. (Eastern time).
