Q: How does the audition process work?
A: The audition process allows our campers to immediately start jamming with our rock stars. You are asked to choose from a list of songs, which we provide you with in advance for the audition. Right away you will be playing with rock stars and other campers. The audition process enables our counselors to get a feel for your musical ability as well as giving you an opportunity to get rid of your stage fright right away. Several campers have said after auditioning Free’s ‘All Right Now’ with Simon Kirke, “I’ve got my money’s worth” after the first day. There is no need to be nervous; it is a fun time and a great event to watch. Once you finish auditioning you will have the option to watch other campers audition or you can start playing in one of our jam rooms while the auditions continue.
Q: How much time do you actually spend jamming?
A: In Hollywood you will spend 10-12 hours a day jamming during the camp. We also hold jam sessions at night so you will have the chance to play with other counselors and campers who are not in your band. For the One Day Only Rock ‘n Roll Fantasy Camp you will jam for over six hours
Q: Will I get to record?
A: Yes, in Hollywood there will be recording equipment available for you to record your band's rehearsals and performance.
Q: Is equipment provided?
A: Yes. Our sponsor, Gibson provides the finest guitars and bass guitars. We also have DW drums, Korg keyboards, Marshall amplifiers, effect pedals, and any other necessary gear you may need as well as top roadies and staff, who handle the biggest rock and roll stars to take care of you.
Q: Can I bring my own gear?
A: Absolutely. Many campers enjoy the ‘show and tell’ factor by bringing their guitars and equipment. We only ask that you label your gear with your contact information.
Q: Where does the camp take place?
A: Past camps have taken place at SIR Studios and the House of Blues in Hollywood, CA. For the One Day Only the venue is the Germain Amphitheatre.

Q: How do the campers get around from the studios to the hotel?
A: Shuttle service is provided to and from the hotel to the studios and all camp events. This transportation is included in the camp fee.
Q: What kind of clothes do I need?
