“Check! Check!” went the mic last Sunday at Original Mike's where eighteen women gathered in the spirit of rock n' roll participating an all first ever OC Ladies Rock Camp. It took only two days for these mujeres to learn bass, drums, paino, and tune their vocals in efforts to fundraise for this summers Rock 'n' Roll Camp For Girls Orange County.
“It's really overwhelming to see so many women come together basically it's something I have dreamed of for the last five years,and it finally happend” said Candace Hansen, the volunteer coordinator. What's the fuzz? When was the last time you attended a badass rock camp for ladies in el corazon de Orange County?
“As a girl playing in punk bands in Orange County, I didn't feel supported..I didn't feel like I had community support growing up and its the community that lacks but in a city like SanTana where you can see how it's really starting to build commuinity” adds Hansen.
