Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp Featured on ‘Cool Companies’ On CNN Money

Posted by Levine Communications Office on November 23, 2011

Owner(s): David Fishof

Whether your experience has been limited to an air guitar or a hairbrush microphone, David Fishof wants to release the inner rock star in you.

Fishof, who was road manager for such rock legends as Ringo Starr and The Eagles’ Joe Walsh, founded Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp in 2000 with $2,000. The camp features rock headliners and his old friends to be camp counselors who play alongside the campers.

These counselors have included such legends as Vince Neil of Motley Crue, Roger Daltrey of The Who and Steven Tyler of Aerosmith. Fishof tapped a vein of longing. Next year’s revenue is projected to be between $4 million and $6 million.

Camp sessions are offered six times a year in locations like Abbey Road Studios in London, Avatar Studios and The Gibson Showroom in New York City and even The Playboy Mansion in California. Prices vary by the length of stay at camp and the location.

The Passing Zone Featured on CNN Money

Posted by Levine Communications Office on November 23, 2011

Owner(s): Jon Wee and Owen Morse

Jon Wee and Owen Morse made great use of their respective college degrees in economics and psychology when they paired up in 1988. They became chainsaw jugglers.

This duo, known as The Passing Zone, also juggles sharp knives, flaming torches and fills garbage bags while riding Segways. They perform mostly for corporate events, focusing on themes like “juggling priorities” and “keeping lots of balls in the air.”

“We use real chainsaws straight from the hardware store and it is truly dangerous,” said Wee, who admits they have both cut themselves numerous times. “We just try not to let our audience see any blood.”

Their act has gained them appearances on “The Tonight Show,” “The Today Show,” The Miss America Pageant and many others. They’ve even performed at The White House and before Prince Charles who deemed them “clever” and expressed relief he wasn’t seated in the front row as sharp objects flew.
