Here's what Stephen Pisani had to say of his Adult Rock Camp experience (which led to the formation of Local Jane, a band made up of Adult Rock Camp attendess): “I signed up for the rock camp to get out of my basement and out into the community. I'd only been drumming for a year and a half and I wanted to really push myself by playing with other more experienced people. The camp’s focus was on coming together as a group, so it was perfect for me just starting and looking for a way to reach out to other musicians. I got to jam with new people and try out different styles in a relaxed environment, which was an absolute blast, but definitely the best part was playing the live shows after the camp and continuing to jam with the musicians we met. We're polishing up and getting back out there with our new band Local Jane.” Pisani’s wife, Donna Wiley, the bass player for Local Jane, also attended MAMM Rock Camp.
MAMM Adult ROCK CAMP packs everything an aspiring rock star needs to know to get rockin’ into one weekend. Past camps have included studio tours, master classes, live performances, song-writing workshops, meet and greets with local professionals, instrument clinics and jam sessions.
