THE ROCK SOLID PRESSURE INDUSTRY SHOWCASE 2009

The nationally syndicated FM 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 September 19th. For those of you that attended last year's gala, and thought the eye-popping experience couldn't get any bigger..Think again! The team promises a bigger knock out punch for the 2009 fest. There will also be a VIP Pre-Party on Friday September 18th. The high profile DJ team will once again unleash over 20 of the best unsigned bands in America for an all day concert event for the music industry. The Showcase (now in it's 7th year) will be held at the biggest and best national concert venue on the Tampa Bay gulf, The State Theatre in St. Petersburg Florida. Tickets are now on sale for those of you planning the annual pilgramage to the Sunshine State for this amazing weekend. Please be advised, the Showcase is always a sold out event, so make sure you book your flights, hotel rooms, but most importantly, get those tix NOW!!

The Showcase is always praised by the rock media as being a totally unique experience. It's certainly a 'one of a kind' event, and many have stated it's the best industry Showcase in North America. Most record label Showcases are not of this magnatude and scope. There is no label placement bands or filler bands who 'know the right connections'. It's all about the music and serious networking. The labels and industry insiders, who will be on the panels this year, know they have a job to do. That's to critique, and possibly sign these amazing acts. This event has since become one of the most talked about Showcases in the country. The annual anticipation in the Rock/Metal world is starting to reach fever pitch, so once again..GAME ON!!

A professional film crew will be shooting the event for a 2009 documentary on the music industry. This DVD will also make the rounds to many of the record labels and high level media that could not make it this year. In other words, the attention doesn't stop for the chosen performers when the Showcase is over. Shopping the film is another unique phase to the event. The Rock Solid Pressure Show has always had an uncanny knack for discovering the best unsigned bands in the nation and moving their career forward. The show's track record is amazing, and the annual Showcase is the extension of the broadcast. The best of all Rock/Metal genre's will be offered up for the industry in another slam bang weekend of heavy duty networking. The Showcase also gives the general public a peek inside the recording industry, and how it's 'really' done' for unsigned bands to get high level press, and namely, attract the radar of record labels. It's also one of the only times in this industry where you can walk in from the street and get music to major players in the music world an unsolicited cd. You can probably understand why it is so important to secure tickets. Espescially if you are in a band and think you have what it takes to impress. As stated earlier, this event 'always' sells out. The public will also hear from the panelists about the inner workings of the business, and to many, it's an eye opening experience..

The Rock Solid Pressure Show exploded onto the scene in a small Connecticut radio station in 2002. It originated as a revolt to the fluffy reality music TV shows, namely 'The American Idol'. The broadcast quickly became an underground hit in a stagnant and suffering national music scene. Live Showcases for Sony Records quickly followed. The multi sponsored show moved to Florida and now commands an immense loyal following through FM and internet syndication. The 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 radio show is also known for featuring the best A-List Superstar guests. J-Rock and Patty The Radio Girl are continually re-inventing the airwaves, and are constantly changing the scope of the Rock/Metal scene with the broadcast. They feature the best signed and unsigned bands every Monday night, and of course, it's sprikled with their own unique mayhem. 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. The pair is also instrumental in organizing some of the biggest Rock/Metal festivals in the state. They didn't get the moniker as being 'The hardest working DJ's in radio' for nothing. The Rock Solid Pressure Show will also be making the much anticipated leap to network television next month, so be on the lookout for the pilot episode..

J-Rock and Patty have been in the music scene individually for over 25 years. J-Rock is a well known touring musician from New Jersey. He's shared stages with some of the biggest bands in the world. His 8 albums have charted internationally with bands such as 'ROCKCHAMBER, THE LOVE ZOMBIES, ORGANIC BRAIN SYNDROME'. He also became a favorite of the press, and the CMJ charts with his two solo outings, which was a departure from his Hard Rock/Metal stylings which he built his name on in the North East. He has returned to the Hard Rock/Metal genre with a new project 'LAVAFISH' which mixes elements of many genres into a wicked stew. Expect many guest stars on this new album. J-Rock is also a former rock journalist, and presently an A&R consultant for many record labels. Patty The Radio Girl was a corporate radio host in Connecticut, and a TV personality 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 corporate America. The Rock Solid Pressure Show is now being shopped to small FM markets around the country who are fed up with rigid corporate domination and the 'same old' revolving playlist and payola schemes. Whatever the appeal, the superstar guests come in droves. J-Rock and Patty seemed to hit a happy medium which has bridged the gap between the underground and a rapidly bending corporate system..And it worked!!

J-Rock is the mastermind behind the entire 'Rock Solid Pressure' concept. His name is synonymous with the music industry at large. His method is finding the alternative to the pop sensations being bred on reality music TV and shattering that concept. He understands the other side of a marketable industry that was set back by these reality shows. The Rock Solid Pressure Radio Competitions, which kick off on the first week of January every year, deal with 'real' screened bands who are ready for the next level. What the public, and the industry see at the Showcase every year are winners of these competitions, along with heavy hitters that are currently dominating the local Florida music scene..
