Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp has launched new live, interactive, online masterclass events featuring an array of top level artists and record producers from the comfort of your home.
Our masterclass events allow you to be LIVE with the artist in an intimate group of 20-25 people, where you will learn, hear stories, be privy to live performances, get tips from the pros themselves and get a very personal experience. You will be able to directly ask questions and they will be answered!
Eva Gardner (Pink, Cher, Gwen Stefani) will be featured in a masterclass on Saturday, June 20th at 3:00pm EST. In this intimate masterclass you will join 20 other people as Eva shares stories and tips from her years of experience performing with some of today’s biggest acts! This class is not just for bassists, all are welcome! Interact with Eva and ask her a question you’ve always wanted to know! This class will be moderared by Bass Magazine Editor in Chief Jon D’Auria.
1993: Legendary engineer/producer Andy Johns (Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart, Eric Clapton) brings a Pignose amplifier and bass guitar to the Hollywood Hills home of British rock bassist, Kim Gardner. Kim, who was in The Creation and The Birds with Ron Wood, is surprised when John hands the bass guitar to his 14-year-old daughter, Eva. Johns then goes to turn up the volume on The Kinks’ classic “You Really Got Me” and proclaims, “Now this is a solid bass line!” Eva never looked back.
Eva began performing with live bands in her hometown of Los Angeles at the age of 14. Deciding to further her musical studies, she attended the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts. Eva continued her studies at UCLA, graduating with honors (Cum Laude), and earning a degree in Ethnomusicology. Her professional career began when she toured and recorded as the original bassist in The Mars Volta in 2001/2002. Since then, Eva has performed and toured with numerous artists worldwide, including P!nk, Gwen Stefani, Cher, Tegan & Sara, Moby and Veruca Salt. In 2014, Eva became the first female artist to have a signature bass with Fender.

Some of these classes will be focused on a particular skill (for example, Vernon Reid of Living Colour’s class will offer guitarists his techniques), while others may be more advice driven and conversational. Lita Ford is offering a women’s only class which has already sold out.
The first week of classes featured sessions from Mark Farner (Grand Funk Railroad), Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot, Ozzy Osbourne), Felix Cavaliere (The Rascals), Simon Kirke (Bad Company, Free), Joe Vitale (Joe Walsh, David Crosby), and Mike Clink (Guns N’ Roses, Megadeth producer) all sold out.
“I had a ball and can’t wait to do it again. I love getting to talk to fellow musicians and fans.” – Simon Kirke, Bad Company, Free
This is your backstage pass to the VIP room! Invite your fellow bandmates to join you on the sessions. Gather your family around your computer to partake in the fun. Just like at our “in-person” camps, where it is commonplace for rock stars to drop in unannounced, you never know who might surprise you and show up in your class!
“In these times of turbulence, these Master Classes have demonstrated how much happiness the power of music can bring. Felix Cavaliere was as gracious a “Master” as he could be in sharing wonderful stories and reflections from his legendary career.” – Frank

“I’m proud that over the past 25 years of Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp we have been able to offer top touring musicians, with whom you have been able to learn from, jam with, interact and share personal experiences. I want to assure you that we will come out blazing with Rock Camps in 2021 when it will be safe to do so again. Thank you, stay safe, stay in touch and rock on.” – David Fishof, CEO
