Look alive, aging rock’n’roll hopefuls! From April 18 to 21, Brian Wilson and Jeff Beck will host a Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn songwriting and performing tricks directly from the two legends.
According to a press release, Wilson will have his personal team of professional musicians with him, including musical director and guitarist Jeffrey Foskett, keyboard player Darian Sahanaja, bassist Probyn Gregory, and drummer Scott Bennett. Fans can expect special guest appearances from other session players, touring band members, and “rock star counselors.”
“Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp is an event unlike any other,” the statement reads. “All experience levels are welcome regardless of musical ability, fans and musicians alike wanting to participate in this one-of-a-kind experience will be able to learn, sing and perform alongside all of Wilson’s and Beck’s songs.”
Patrons are given a choice between using their own instruments or relying on camp equipment provided by Roland, Boss, DW Drums, Fender, Gibson, and many other musical purveyors. Vocal lessons are also available. At the end of the four-day retreat, campers will perform a live concert at the MGM Grand in front of family and friends. Wilson will also give a private performance for everyone involved.
Other upcoming Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp sessions include an outing led by Sammy Hagar, Steve Vai, and many more, scheduled to take place from March 5 to 9; Def Leppard are also offering lessons from April 4 to 7.
