The Rock Solid Pressure Industry Showcase 2008

The nationally syndicated FM/Net radio broadcast 'Rock Solid Pressure' featuring the dynamic duo of the airwaves 'J-Rock and Patty The Radio Girl' are currently gearing up once again for their annual industry Showcase on Saturday Sept 13th 2008. For those of you that remember the spectacle from last year, the team promises a bigger extrvaganza for this year's event. There will also be a VIP industry 'Pre-Party' on Friday Sept 12th. The high profile DJ team will unleash the 20 best unsigned bands in America for an all day concert event for the music industry. The Showcase will return to Bourbon Street in New Port Richey Florida, so start booking flights.

Rock Solid Pressure exploded onto the scene in a small Connecticut radio station in 2002. It originated as a revolt to the fluffy reality music TV shows. The broadcast quickly became an underground hit in a stagnant and suffering national music scene. Live Showcases for Sony Records quickly followed and the rest is scripted in rock music history. The multi sponsored show moved to Central Florida and now commands an immense loyal following through FM and internet syndication. The Rock Solid Pressure Showcase is no longer an exclusive event for members of Sony Records A&R. Many new labels and industry insiders have jumped on the panels through the years, and a dynasty has been forged for the unsigned music community with these franchise events.

The Showcase is always heralded by the media as being more attentive than SXSW, NAMM, and other events of this magnatude. The difference is there is no 'pay to play' label placement or filler bands who 'know the right connections'. It's all about the music and serious networking. The labels and industry insiders know they have a job to do on the panel. That's to critique, and possibly sign 20 of the best 'hand picked' bands from around the country. The Showcase has since become one of the most talked about events in North America. This will be their 7th successful year, and if you think it couldn't get any bigger, keep reading.

Just like last year, a professional film crew will be shooting the event for a 2008 documentary on the music industry. This film will also make the rounds throughout the entire entertainment industry. The Rock Solid Pressure Show has an uncanny knack for discovering the best unsigned bands in the nation and moving their career forward. The show's track record is spotless, and the annual Showcase is the extension of the nationally syndicated broadcast. The best of all Rock/Metal genres will be offered up for the industry in a slam bang weekend event of heavy duty networking. The Showcase also gives the general public a peek inside the recording industry, and an actual chance for bands to walk in from the street and get their music to major players in the industry unsolicited. The public will also hear from the panelists about the inner workings of the music industry.

The radio show is also known for featuring the best A-List superstar guests. J-Rock and Patty The Radio Girl are continually making rock/metal history with their broadcast. They feature the best signed, and unsigned bands every Monday night. The duo can also be seen hosting national concert events and festivals all over the state of Florida, and their name is a staple on the music scene worldwide. Although it was not talked about much in the press, Rock Solid Pressure was instrumental in organizing THE NIGHTMARE METAL FEST, and the team are also busy putting together THE SUMMER SOLSTICE FESTIVAL which will feature over 20 national acts on 4 giant stages. The Summer Solstice Event is planned for June 22nd 2009. Also in the works is another franchise event for unsigned bands, the long overdue 'PRESSURE-FEST' which will debut in December.

J-Rock and Patty have been in the music scene individually for over 20 years. J-Rock is a well known Jersey touring musician who has toured with some of the biggest bands in the world. His 8 albums have charted internationally, and he has a new music project 'LavaFish' on the horizon. He's also a well known former rock journalist, and presently is an A&R consultant for many record labels. Patty was a corporate radio host from Connecticut, and an entertainment superstar in Greece. When the pair teamed up as the broadcast duo for 'Rock Solid Pressure', an enigma was born and they literally revolutionized radio with their fun, interactive show, which broadcasts from a Dungeon no less. Corporate sponsors work hand in hand with indie sponsors of the broadcast. Nothing like this has ever happened in a corporate America world. The Rock Solid Pressure Show is now being sold to FM markets around the country who are fed up with corporate domination and the 'same old' revolving playlist and payola schemes. The guests come in droves, but the show is not anti-corporate. J-Rock and Patty just hit on a happy medium to bridge the gap between the underground and the corporate system and it worked. If you are not initiated to their world, we suggest you take a peek at their websites and check out the amazing lineup of guests who appear regularly on the broadcast.

J-Rock works extensively with Major/Indie labels. He's known as a guy with 'golden ears' and he's a prime go-to guy for a ton of A&R reps around the globe. His method is finding the alternative to the pop sensations being bred on reality music TV and shattering that concept. J-Rock understands the other side of a rapidly recovering marketable industry that was damaged by these music reality shows. The Rock Solid Pressure Radio Competitions, which kick off on the first of January every year, deal with 'real' screened bands who are ready for the next level. What the public and the industry see's at the Showcase every year are the winners of these competitions. Awards will also be given out to the Grand Prize Winners on stage at this years gala.
