NewTek announced today that its TriCaster™ portable live production and virtual set system will be used to stream live video from the Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp™ performance at the famous Cavern Club in Liverpool where the Beatles first established themselves. This is the first multi-camera live stream since a performance by Paul McCartney in 1999 and the first-ever using a portable live production system at the Cavern Club.

Throughout the week-long event, campers will be jamming with rock legends Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones, Nick Mason of Pink Floyd, Pete Best, the original drummer of the Beatles and many other surprise guests. Camp events will take place at famous rock venues throughout the week, including: John Henry Studios, Abbey Road Studios, the Cavern Club and more.

The Cavern Club finale concert will be live streamed to worldwide audiences on Sunday, November 9 at 1:30 p.m. CST at www.newtek.com and www.rockcamp.com.

“This is a great opportunity for us to offer our campers, the ability for their fans, family and friends to see them live out their rock and roll dreams as they unfold,” said David Fishof, founder and chief executive officer, Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp. “In addition to enhancing the participants’ experiences, we are excited to deliver the Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy camp to many more would-be rock stars that may sign on as future campers.”

The stream will be hosted by Chuck Silber, senior vice president, worldwide sales, NewTek, who as a camp participant, will be performing on drums.

“Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for musicians of all skill levels to take the stage in historic venues and jam with the rock legends that made the music that they grew up with,” said Silber. “With the portability of TriCaster, we are able to offer music fans a glimpse into a vital place in Beatles’ history and at the same time, we can expose campers to a larger, Internet-based audience who will watch them live out their life-long musical aspirations.”
