Rock Or Bust – AC/DC Camp (1 Week)
June 13, 2016 @ 8:00 am - June 17, 2016 @ 5:00 pm MST
AC/DC are an Australian hard rock band, formed in November 1973 by brothers Malcolm and Angus Young, who continued as members until Malcolm’s illness and departure in 2014. Commonly referred to as a hard rock or blues rock band, they are also considered pioneers of heavy metal and are sometimes classified as such, though they have always dubbed their music as simply “rock and roll“.
AC/DC underwent several line-up changes before releasing their first album, High Voltage, on 17 February 1975; Malcolm and Angus were the only original members left in the band. Membership subsequently stabilised until bassist Mark Evans was replaced by Cliff Williams in 1977 for the album Powerage. Within months of recording the album Highway to Hell, lead singer and co-songwriter Bon Scott died on 19 February 1980 after a night of heavy alcohol consumption. The group considered disbanding, but buoyed by support from Scott’s parents, decided to continue and set about finding a new vocalist. Ex-Geordie singer Brian Johnson was auditioned and selected to replace Scott. Later that year, the band released the new album,Back in Black, which was made as a tribute to Bon Scott. The album launched them to new heights of success and became their all-time best-seller.
TPI camp attendees will learn 2-3 songs by this band, we’ll rehearse them, work on stage presence, performance skills & polish the overall show. We’ll then rehearse on Friday morning in preparation for the big performance for family & friends Friday evening.
Camp officially starts at 9:00AM and ends at 5:00PM but we are allowing early drop-off from 8-9AM & late pick up between 5-6PM for an additional fee. During early drop off and late pick up, the campers will play games and get to know one another during this time.
Concert to follow at the end of the week – 6-7:30PM on the TPI Concert Stage.
