Carmine Appice asks rock ‘n’ roll addicts of all ages, “How does spending a few days of major face time with me and some of my most excellent, legendary rock ‘n’ metal hero friends sound?”

The groundbreaking drummer provides an answer in the form of Carmine Appice’s Rockaholics Metal Fan Camp – set for August 26-30 at Full Moon Resort in the heart of the "Forever Wild" Catskill Forest Preserve, just one half hour west of Woodstock, New York. Carmine Appice (VANILLA FUDGE, CACTUS) will be joined by “camp counselors” including singer/guitarist Eric Bloom (BLUE OYSTER CULT), drummer James Kottak (SCORPIONS), guitarist Eddie Ojeda (TWISTED SISTER), and renowned shredder Michael Angelo Batio.

Carmine Appice is known not only as a heavy metal progenitor for his visionary work with VANILLA FUDGE (and later CACTUS, the power trio Beck, Bogert & Appice, and others), but also as a tireless drum evangelist and educator through both his best-selling Realistic Rock Drum Method and decades of clinics. Rockaholics Metal Fan Camp is not so much a forum for preaching and teaching as an opportunity for shared social experience, though: "I've been thinking about doing a drum camp forever," Carmine explains. "Then while I was at NAMM, it hit me: 'Hey, this can be way cooler than that -- make it a fan camp for all rock/metal heads.' So I cherry-picked some amazing stars to join me, and Full Moon Resort offered me a fantastic price package. What better way to reward the fans who have been so loyal for so long than to give them a once in a lifetime opportunity to spend 'round-the-clock face time with me and my friends? We’ll all be hanging out and having a great time."

Rockaholics camp sessions will feature road warrior stories, musical performances by individual artists, Q&As, and more -- ending with nightly jam sessions featuring the camp’s celebrity counselors. Also planned is the “Carmine Cookoff,” inspired by his “Cooking With Carmine” segment which can be viewed on YouTube. Additional details about the daily schedule will be announced in the coming weeks.

While the Rockaholics Metal Fan Camp will showcase Carmine’s own flair for rock ‘n’ roll storytelling, he’s equally enthusiastic about the lineup of camp counselors that he recruited while attending the annual Winter NAMM Show in Southern California earlier this year.

“As I ran into my friends at NAMM, I asked different people in the rock and metal arena if they would be interested. And one by one I picked the best guys who were available,” Carmine says. “The guys who committed ROCK! They are some of the best in the biz. They are cool, personable rock stars who’ve been around for awhile and have seen it all. It's gonna be a great time!”

Carmine Appice’s Rockaholics Metal Fan Camp offers a variety of pricing options, based on the variety of available accommodations. Packages are on sale now HERE, and start at just $795, including lodging, access to all gourmet meals, performances, and camp activities.

All activities will be held at Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, NY, which features an eclectic array of comfortable, rustic country-inn accommodations as well as tent camping. All accommodations are just steps away from daily camp activities. Guests can enjoy the spring-fed swimming pool, on-site access to the Esopus Creek, and explore the splendors of the Catskills on the nearby network of hiking trails. Dedicated to the celebration of nature, music and the arts, this one hundred-acre wonderland of mountains, fields, and streams is a world of its own.
