Central Park Stage
Danville- 2:30 pm
Decatur 4:30 pm.
In 2012 Mikey Schoneman saw a performance from a group of kids down in Danville. He fell in love with the performance and with the camp that helped kids put the performance on. After speaking to the right people Mikey talked the Camp Directors he convinced them to franchise the camp and bring it to not just Danville but other Central IL locations.
First Gig Rock n’ Roll Camp now resides in Danville, Decatur, and Champaign.
The camp provides the Rock Star Experience for kids 10-17. The camp provides classes from vocal, guitar, base, and drums. They learn how to run sound, compose, produce, and perform like Rock Stars. First Gig places it’s participants in bands based on age and instrument interest from there on out the kids spend the week being fully immersed as Rock Stars.
The kids get one on one time with local musicians that help them perfect their craft, a professional photographer, a band logo with their band name, a recording of their best song at Millikin University Studios, representatives that talk about talent agencies and bookings, and a Final Concert.
