Head on up to the East Coast as we bring you the lead guitarist of Aerosmith, Joe Perry at Foxwoods Resort Casino, Thursday, January 15 – Sunday, January 18, 2015!
As co-founding member, principal co-songwriter, electrifying lead guitarist and co-producer of Aerosmith, Joe Perry has achieved permanent iconic stature in the pantheon of rock. He has driven his band, over the course of three decades, to sales of more than 150 million albums, four Grammy Awards, 12 MTV Video Music Awards, two People’s Choice Awards, eight American Music Awards, an Academy Award and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Joe’s slinky licks are all over some of the greatest classic rock tunes ever recorded: “Walk this Way,” “Back in the Saddle,” “Sweet Emotion,” “Dream On,” and scores of other radio hits.
Deep Purple guitarist and founder of Dixie Dregs Steve Morse will be joining the camp to show campers his stylistically diverse compositional skills and how to perfect his fast, alternate picked arpeggios. Alongside these legends will also be Foreigner vocalist and songwriter, Lou Gramm. Lou co-wrote such hits as, “Hot Blooded”, “I Want to Know What Love Is”, “Cold As Ice”, “Juke Box Hero” and the hits go on.
Now you get the chance to play and sing alongside these rock and roll legends!

Our musical coordinator will be in touch with you in advance and prepare you for an experience of a lifetime by reviewing your musical desires and skills to make sure you are ready to go when camp begins. Once you are placed in a band, throughout the 4 days our Rock Star Counselors will mentor you and your band mates, you will attend master classes, write and record an original song, themed jam sessions, and daily Q&As with rockers.
