Kadi Prescott of The Trend Tribe blogs about the “wickedly talented” Clayton Mann and his brothers, Johnathon and Bryce Mann at Rock N’ Roll Fantasy Camp.
"Upon entering the lobby, I was immediately greeted by the hard-core voice of the young and wickedly talented Clayton Mann, rehearsing in one of the many impressively equipped studios with his fellow teen band members and brothers. Clayton, Johnathon and Bryce Mann aka REBELMANN, were just three of the campers in attendance who had the pleasure of rocking out with the great Gene Simmons.”
In our next installment from last week’s exclusive visit to the
Rock ’N Roll Fantasy Camp now based in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Hotel along with a brand new off-site rehearsal studio complex,
we bring you one of the most magical moments we’ve witnessed over the years at the camp.
Forget that little more than 24 hours earlier he was performing with KISS back in New York, helping to promote the fantastic new KISS album, Monster. That wasn't on "God of Counselors" Gene Simmons' mind as he
worked with musicians from all over the world, teaching them how to come up with a new song. The iconic bassist/vocalist was focused on the job as he worked tirelessly to give campers an experience they would surely never forget.
But we’re not sure he bargained for 13-year-old axeman Clayton Mann, a KISS/Simmons freak for about 10 years. He plays in a band in Chicago with his twin brothers, REBELMANN®, but Clayton's mom Julie brought the kids to the camp primarily so Clayton could meet and play with his musical hero.
REBELMANN® ironcically coached earlier in the week by former KISS guitarist and camp counselor, Bruce Kulick, turned in a nice performance of the 1982 KISS tune, War Machine,” which Simmons sang on. But the fun didn’t stop there. The young and confident Clayton Mann took over over, vamping and jamming with Simmons to a point where
Simmons seemed blown away by the kid’s chops and personality.

Afterwards, Mann told Noisecreep that the Simmons jam was a dream come true and he'd love nothing more than to someday record with the Demon. Regardless of what happens, as you'll see in the video, Simmons was beaming, genuinely impressed with the teens.
In a nutshell, this is why we love the Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp. If you are a musician we cannot recommend this enough - for a full week session or even an hourly one-on-one jam session with a rock idol, it gets no better - as we think the video illustrates.
