Rock 301: Battle of the Baby Boomer Bands

Three randomly-constructed camps, starting the fourth week of September (22nd-25th)

Are you feelin’ lucky??  We hope so because we had such a great time with our three randomly-chosen Battle of The Bands last year, we’re doing it again!  Rock Camp For Dads will be taking six guitarists, three bassists, three drummers and three vocalists and randomly forming three separate bands (each band participant will be chosen by drawing a name from a hat at a special “Welcome Party/strategy session”).  You must be available Monday, Tuesday or Thursday evenings for rehearsals, as you will not know your camp nite til the drawing. You’ll then be competing in our third annual RCFD Battle of The Bands!  We’re going to draw your favorite “Baby Boomer” 60s and 70s hits from a hat to create setlists for the competing bands!  The Battle of the Baby Boomer Bands will be held on October 18th at Bunker’s, hosted by three local celebrity guest judges.  Prizes include the coveted headlining spot on our 2014 Best of Season Gig and a FREE camp for each of the winning band participants!  Your band may be made by luck, but the battle will be won by your sheer rock power!
