New York (August 17, 2006)–It was the noted Canadian sociologist Bryan Adams who once observed, “Everywhere I go, kids wanna rock.” While those youthful charges tend to grow up, many of them often find themselves in a quandry years later, still harboring the want–but perhaps not the necessary aptitude–to, indeed, “rock.” Fortunately, they can turn to the expert counselors at Rock N’ Roll Fantasy Camp, currently taking place in New York City.
The five-day camp for adults started August 13, and culminates tonight with a “Battle of the Bands” at B.B. King’s Night Club in Times Square. In the racks at the camp and in the club, is gear from TC Electronic.
Martin Naclerio of One World Enterprises, who is the coordinating technical advisor for this year’s Camp, chose TC Electronic processing for all the camp’s workshops at Gibson’s New York Studio in the former Hit Factory. Daily workshops and jam sessions have been using TC M300 and M-One XL processing.
“When we are asked to equip all the workshops with sound systems, the first name that came to mind for processing was TC,” said Naclerio. “I’ve used TC processing for the last 15 years and you simply can’t beat the quality of the delays and reverbs.”
This year’s featured talent at the camp included George Thorogood, Joe Satriani, Jon Anderson, Max Weinberg, Dr. John and Dickey Betts, while the camp counsellors included Jeff “Skunk” Baxter, Sandy Genaro and Spencer Davis, among others.
