ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn. (AP) -- Just because you have a family and a mortgage doesn't mean you can't rock and roll.

In Minnesota, Rock Camp for Dads is giving baby boomers and younger musicians a chance to unleash their inner Jimi Hendrix. Since 2009, hundreds of dads -- and moms -- have tapped their musical fantasies.

Rock Camp offers 10 courses a month. All amps, drum kits and microphones are provided -- all campers have to bring is their guitar, bass, drumsticks and desire.

Campers range in age from late 30s to early 60s and must be at least 21 years old. Camps are divided into three levels -- Rock 101 for beginners up to Rock 301 for advanced musicians.

After four weeks of rehearsing, campers hit the stage for a real gig.
