Nancy Wilson, Melissa Etheridge Lead Women-Only Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp
The Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp has traditionally been a dude-dominated affair, but it just announced its first-ever Women Only Rock Camp, to be held in Los Angeles over the Grammys weekend, January 27 through 30, 2022.
At the program’s Rock Camps, participants form a band, who are mentored by a counselor and rehearse songs to jam with the special guests. Melissa Etheridge, Nancy Wilson, Kathy Valentine of the Go-Go’s, and Orianthi will act as headlining mentors at the Women Only camp, with more to be announced.
Other mentors working at the camp will include Rhonda Smith (Prince, Jeff Beck), Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson, Jeff Beck), Eva Gardner (Pink, Cher), Ginger Pooley (Smashing Pumpkins, Gwen Stefani) and Jennie Vee (Eagles of Death Metal), among others.
The crew and staff of the camp will be all women, and there will be panels from various guest speakers from within the music industry. Masterclasses, Q&As, and themed jam rooms will also be part of the schedule, culminating in a live performance before an all-ages crowd at Whisky A Go-Go on January 30.
