Guitarist Adrian Belew, bassist Tony Levin, and drummer Pat Mastelotto return to Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, NY from August 20-24 for the second annual Three Of A Perfect Pair Music Camp. This 5-day vacation experience offers attendees the chance to get to know these three musical luminaries and see them at work amidst the idyllic backdrop of the Catskills and Full Moon Resort.

Together as the musical backbone of progressive rock linchpins King Crimson — and separately through countless other bands, projects and collaborations — Belew, Levin and Mastelotto have helped forge the history of modern rock music over careers spanning five decades.

Three Of A Perfect Pair 2011 video recap

At the Three Of A Perfect Pair Music Camp, Adrian, Tony and Pat will share meals, tales from the road, and maybe even the stage during after-hours jam sessions with campers. Whether campers play guitar, drums, bass — or no instrument at all — Three Of A Perfect Pair offers a rare opportunity to learn, to play, to make new friends, and to get up close and personal with this trio of renowned musicians.

Adrian, Tony and Pat will not only interact directly with campers, but will also follow an itinerary shaped in part by those campers. Upon registration, all attendees will fill out a questionnaire about their ideas and hopes for the camp experience. That feedback will help set the agenda for the Three Of A Perfect Pair's open curriculum.

Adrian and Pat comment on last year's camp experiences:

"What a blast we had last year! The resort is beautiful, the food is great, the staff is excellent. I'm looking forward to seeing 'old friends' from last year and making new friends again. Some personal highlights for me from last time include learning Crimson songs with Pat and Tony, teaching a group of 30 guitarists the parts to 'Frame By Frame,' and our monster 78-person jam!

We have so much fun, impart so much information, give out so much free stuff, and tell just about every funny story that's ever happened to the three of us. The nightly bonfires and jams sessions over beers are more icing on the cake. I'm certain this year's event will be even better and I can't wait!"

Adrian Belew

"The camp was much more a family affair than I imagined. We all interacted so casually and with a friendly feeling of mutual enjoyment. I brought my wife and watching her interact with the campers was fun for me. She enjoyed it so much she wants the camp to become an annual family vacation."

Pat Mastelotto

About the artists at Three Of A Perfect Pair Music Camp

Adrian Belew (guitar)

Lauded by Trent Reznor as "the most awesome musician in the world," cited by Les Claypool as an inspiration for him "to go down paths lightly trodden," and hailed by no less than Frank Zappa as a musician who "re-invented the electric guitar," Adrian Belew has made his mark as a guitarist, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and record producer. Best known as guitarist and lead vocalist for seminal prog-rockers King Crimson for the past 30 years, Adrian has led avant-pop band The Bears for more than 25 years, and more recently founded the Adrian Belew Power Trio with Paul Green School of Rock alumni siblings Eric and Julie Slick. Belew has 15 acclaimed solo albums and countless collaborations to his name.

His fiercely original and relentlessly offbeat work is as diverse as it is prolific, with credits as far-flung as David Bowie, Bela Fleck, Talking Heads, and even Mariah Carey. He has played on landmark records from Paul Simon's Graceland to Nine Inch Nails' The Downward Spiral.

Tony Levin (bass)

Born in Boston, Tony Levin started out in classical music, attending the Eastman School of Music and playing bass in the Rochester Philharmonic. Later moving into jazz and rock, he has had a notable career, recording with John Lennon, Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, Yes, Alice Cooper, Paul Simon, Carly Simon, Judy Collins, and many more. He has also released five solo CDs, three books, and has had numerous exhibitions of his photographs. He tours throughout the year with the band Stick Men, and he is currently a member of King Crimson, the Peter Gabriel Band, and and the jazz band L'Image with Steve Gadd and Mike Mainieri. His popular website,, featured one of the web's first blogs, and has over 4 million visits.

Tony's latest projects include the new Stick Men CD coming out in Fall 2012, an eagerly anticipated eBook version of his Crimson Chronicles photo book, and fall tour dates.

Pat Mastelotto (drums)

After spending 35 years working with many of the top artists in the pop and prog rock scene, Pat Mastelotto recently released his first solo album, Recidivate. Naturally, the King Crimson/XTC/Mr. Mister drummer decided to take a slightly different path to solo stardom by assembling a compilation of outtakes, rarities, and highlights from the past 20 years of his career. Mastelotto recruited several artists he has worked with over the years to participate in Recidivate, including Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), Robert Fripp (King Crimson), Stick Men (Mastelotto's ongoing touring trio with Tony Levin), Terry Bozzio (Missing Persons), Naked Truth (featuring avant-garde jazz musicians Roy Powell, Lorenzo Feliciati and Cuong Vu), Roine Stolt & Jonas Reingold (Flower Kings), Kimmo Pohjonen — and of course tracks from TU (also Ktu, Tuner, Tunisia, and MPTU), Mastelotto's long running partnership with King Crimson bandmate Trey Gunn.

Pat's band Stick Men—with Tony Levin and Markus Reuter—is finishing up their next CD and will launch a world tour in April, with shows in the U.S., South America, Russia and the UK.
