The instructional staff for Roy Vogt’s Fantasy Bass Boot Camp (FBBC), set for late July in Nashville, Tennessee, has been finalized with the addition of Brian Bromberg, Bernard Lackner, Adam Nitti, and Tim Smith.
This inaugural event of a proposed series, sponsored by The Learning Dock, LLC – producers of Roy’s multi award-winning “Teach Me Bass Guitar” – will be headquartered at the Hilton Doubletree downtown. The camp will constitute a week-long workshop of intensive instruction for up to fifteen TMBG owners from Europe, Canada, and across the U.S.
“FBBC is designed as a cultural and recreational experience, as well as an educational one,” says TLD CFO Barbara Crossman. “The package showcases the best of Nashville – with a landmark restaurant featured each night (except Tuesday) – from a show cruise on the General Jackson to Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville downtown and the Germantown Cafe, as well as cultural, shopping, and relaxation options for spouses.”
Event coordinator, Brie Pritchard, adds: “Roy and his staff have designed the workshops for beginning, intermediate, and advanced-intermediate TMBG owners. Original music has been written emphasizing the skills students will be learning. These will be taught and practiced throughout the week, culminating in a live performance with the TMBG Band at The Rutledge on Thursday night, and an all-day recording session – with the band – at The Sound Emporium.”
“The idea is to create an experience that really lives up to the “fantasy” label,” says Crossman. “We want students to take home not just exciting new skills that will propel their playing to the next level, but happy memories of their time in Nashville that will last a lifetime. Of course, video cameras will record the week and students will receive Quicktime files of their experience and an mp3 of their recording session.”
Adds Vogt: “This is an exceptional faculty of instructors – highly-skilled professionals who are known throughout the bass-playing world for their skills as performers and teachers. I encourage everyone who loves good music to come to The Rutledge (Thursday, August 2, 7:30-10:00) to hear the result of their efforts as the FBBC students demonstrate their new skills. It’ll be free, and it’ll be a blast!”
The costs for FBBC – all-inclusive less airfare – is $2995. The camp is for TMBG owners only – you can get your copy for the Internet special price of $187.50 at www.teachmebassguitar.com.
