Women's Only Rock Camp Seeks Female Drummers

Women's Only Camp is a safe, non-competitive environment for women of all ages to take their skills and confidence to the next level, realize their dreams are possible, and create bonds and friendships for life with fellow aspiring musicians. "Camp becomes an emotional and life changing experience for both campers and rockstars, as you witness transformations in people both musically and emotionally", says counselor Britt Lightning. As Roger Daltrey says of Camp, "It's an amazing experience and it makes you remember where you came from."

David Frangioni has been announced as a special guest speaker at metal camp in Florida in early January. David Frangioni is an award-winning veteran of the music and audio-visual technology industry, with expertise ranging from being a drummer and producer, to an audio consultant, technologist, integrator and recording engineer. He found the future of drumming in technology, starting his career with a MIDI consulting business, then working with Aerosmith as their in-house engineer/technologist for many years on their singles, albums, tours and even the theme song for Spider-Man with Joe Perry, Joe’s first-ever all-digital recording. Get A Grip, David’s second, of seven records with Aerosmith, went on to sell more than 20 million copies.

He is a recipient of many gold and platinum albums as technical consultant, engineer, and/or programmer. In the A/V world, he led Audio One to more CEDIA awards in a given time period than any other audio-visual system integrator in the USA and in the music business, he has worked on dozens of Gold & Platinum albums.

In the process, after years of successfully producing, consulting and building recording studios, David founded Audio One Sound & Video Inc in the mid-90’s and grew it from a cold startup to a multi-location, large A/V company establishing it as the premier recording studio/smart tech systems integration company in the US & abroad (through affiliates).
