Los Straitjackets:: Rock & Roll Summer Camp

America’s masked instrumental guitar band Los Straitjackets will be holding its second “Rock & Roll Summer Camp” at the Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, NY August 25-28. Consisting of 3 nights of shows at the Resort’s rustic lodge-like venue, and days filled with guitar workshops, jamming, and outdoor activities in the heart of the beautiful Catskill Mountains, the camp is designed for adults of all ages. In 2007, the camp was inaugurated as a way to allow fans a close up glimpse behind the mask.

This year, the band will feature special guest Bill Kirchen. The noted telecaster wrangler is legendary as guitarist for Commander Cody and the Lost Planet Airmen but since then has been playing around the world under his name and the bands of Nick Lowe and Elvis Costello among others. Kirchen will perform backed by the Straitjackets, as well as conduct a workshop reflecting on his legendary career and guitar technique.

Los Straitjackets most recent album is The Further Adventures of Los Straitjackets, released by Yep Roc Records in April.
