Los Angeles, CA, October 10, 2012 — In celebration of  Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp’s 15th Anniversary and Roland’s 40th Anniversary,  Roland Corporation U.S. is honored to announce the first ever Roland Rock ‘n’  Roll Fantasy Camp Giveaway. One lucky Roland fan will win a chance to rock with  Dave Navarro of Jane’s Addiction and The Who’s Roger Daltrey this January in Las  Vegas. Monthly installments of Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp’s highly successful  music-magic experience are scheduled to take place at MGM Grand Hotel &  Casino in Las Vegas and will feature top-line Roland musical instruments and  recording gear.

KISS co-founder and bassist Gene Simmons and special  guest rock stars including Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne guitarist, Black Label  Society), Vince Neil (Motley Crue) and Sebastian Bach (Skid Row) will ‘rock out’  with campers of all talent levels during the October 10-14 camp, offering them a  taste of what it’s like to live the rock ‘n roll lifestyle. Dave Navarro and  Roger Daltrey are scheduled to headline the January 23-27 camp featuring the  exclusive Roland giveaway.

Simmons said, “I can’t wait to reveal the  secrets of becoming a rock star. Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp is a grueling,  military style musical training process. And, I’m just the guy to be your  Sergeant. Now, drop and give me 20.”

Rock ‘n Roll Fantasy Camp provides  music fans with the once in a lifetime opportunity to jam nightly with legendary  rock stars, write and record original songs, and perform live on stage in front  of family and friends. Campers also have an exclusive chance to use some of  Roland’s world class musical instruments and recording gear, including the  flagship TD-30KV V-Drums kits, the TD-15KV, the RD-700NX stage pianos, Roland’s  newest and most powerful GA-series stage amps for guitar, Roland Systems Group  V-Mixers, REAC Digital Snakes and Personal Monitoring Systems, Roland’s premium  OCTA-CAPTURE™ audio processor, and Cakewalk’s just released SONAR X2 recording  software.

Mark Prows, MGM Grand’s vice president of entertainment said,  “I have been following David Fishof’s development of these camps over the years  and truly believe MGM Grand is the perfect home for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy  Camp featuring Gene Simmons. Entertainment is at the core of the MGM Grand  experience and campers are sure to have an absolute blast!”

Campers have  the option of purchasing a three-day rock star package or five-day headliner  experience.  The two packages include hotel accommodations, breakfast and lunch  daily, scheduled classes and daily jam sessions, a DVD of the final concert  performance, and much more. To celebrate the camp’s culmination Tuesday October  14, campers will host a live concert at MGM Grand.
