Carl Palmer Announces Prog-Rock Camp in Philadelphia

Groundbreaking British rock drummer Carl Palmer has announced a Prog-Rock Camp to be held November 8-10, 2019 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Carl Palmer was a founding member of the legendary progressive rock band Emerson Lake & Palmer. 

The event is envisioned as a musical learning experience for drummers, guitarists, bassists, keyboardists and vocalists called Carl Palmer’s Prog-Rock Camp. The instructors include  Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy and very special guests: guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (former Guns N Roses; Sons Of Apollo) and Derek Sherinian (former Dream Theater, Alice Cooper, Sons Of Apollo).

The camp will run for 3 days in Philadelphia. Registration is now open and is on a first, come first served basis. A sell out will be 100 registrants.

“This camp will be a special dream come true for me,” says Carl Palmer, who has spent many years as an educator and demonstrator of advanced percussion. “It is not designed to be a ‘fantasy’ event, but rather, a complete three day educational adventure for those who really want to improve and advance their musical craft. Of course, fans who want to take in the experience, are welcomed, as well.  This is a chance to sit one on one with some of the contemporary musical greats and learn.”
