VIXEN's BRITT LIGHTNING Named Musical Director For ROCK 'N' ROLL FANTASY CAMP's Upcoming Camps
May 25, 2021
VIXEN guitarist Brittany Denaro (a.k.a. Britt Lightning) has been named the musical director for all of Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp's upcoming camps.
Britt has been a counselor at previous Rock Camps and has just wrapped up producing and hosting over 160 Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp online masterclasses since the COVID-19 pandemic began. These masterclasses took place over Zoom and Rock Camp will continue to produce them as a new tool for campers to prepare.
Said Britt: "The Rock Camp experience is open for all ages and levels of musicians. We want to make this an inclusive experience for everyone involved, and eliminate any fear or intimidation and instead incite excitement. We will be building a staff and crew of educated music school graduates, as well as adding Camps with new genres of music we have never done before."
Denaro earned a degree in music business from Northeastern University, graduating Summa Cum Laude while continuing her education at Berklee School Of Music. Britt is currently lead guitarist of the all-female rock band VIXEN. Previously she has played with a diverse list of artists on stages worldwide, including 18-time Grammy winner Alejandro Sanz, Rachel Platten and Jason Derulo. Labeled "The Closer" by Lady Gaga, Britt is a force of nature on and off stage.
Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp is an institution and cultural phenomenon that has been going on in Los Angeles, New York, and other cities since 1996. The brainchild of music producer David Fishof, it boasts a jaw-dropping array of rock star "counselors" that, in the past, have included Roger Daltrey (THE WHO),Alice Cooper, Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons (KISS),Nancy Wilson (HEART),Joe Perry (AEROSMITH),Jeff Beck, Slash (GUNS N' ROSES) and countless other rock legends.
Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp is a non-competitive atmosphere designed for all levels of musicians and music enthusiasts. Participants are placed in bands with like-minded people and skill level to make for an off-the-charts experience.
Some of the campers play well and even gave up careers as musicians to become CEOs and lawyers. Some campers can't play at all. What they all have in common is passion for rock music. At Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp, they all get to pursue their passion — and meet, and play with the artists who became the soundtrack of their lives.
