The Rock Solid Pressure Radio Competitions 2014

The nationally syndicated FM and Internet radio broadcast 'Rock Solid Pressure' featuring the Dungeon Duo of the airwaves 'J-Rock and Patty The Radio Girl' are preparing to unleash their 12th annual Rock Solid Pressure Radio Competitions.

It was stated in a press release in 2012 that the radio competitions would end after 10 long years of battle. The demand to keep the competitions going became a massive outcry from fans and participating voters. The demand was heard and the show decided to keep the competitions on the air. Last year's 2013 Radio Competitions enjoyed the biggest voter turnout in the shows history.

There have been some slight changes in the competitions since it made its debut in 2002. Rather than having the usual 2 or 3 months of battle. It has been condensed into 2 nights. This year the event will be held on Feb 17th and Feb 24th. There will be one grand prize winner from each night. The competing bands will be

Monday Feb 17th: EYES FOR FIRE (IN), CATASTROPHE ME (NY), THIRA (MN), DAYS OF MAYHEM (IL), FIST OF RAGE (OK)

Monday Feb 24th: RELICSEED (CA), EYES LIKE 20 (IN), MEN WITHOUT ARMIES (NY), THE VIOLET HOUR (AZ), PSYCHO SPOON (SC)

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 etched in hard rock 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 this annual event. The radio competitions will determine who we will see on the Showcase stage in September of 2014. After reviewing thousands of bands, the bands that made the cut will go head to head in a blazing 2 night competition. The listener's realtime votes will move their favorite bands into victory or defeat. The grand prize winner from each night will perform at the Industry Showcase.
.
The annual live Showcase is always heralded by the media as being more attentive than SXSW and other events of this magnitude. It's not about having the right connections to grace the stage. 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 Florida and around the country. The Showcase has since become one of the most talked about events in North America. 4 bands were signed last year, and others were endorsed. 2014 will be the 12 Year Anniversary, so expect another huge spectacle. If you have never attended the Showcase (Especially if you are an unsigned band), Plan your vacation to the Tampa Bay Gulf in late September 2014.

The Rock Solid Pressure Show has an uncanny knack for discovering the best unsigned bands in the world and moving their career forward. The show's track record is spotless. They get bands signed every year..PERIOD!! The annual Showcase is the logical extension of the broadcast, and it's been a rite of passage for unsigned bands since 2002. The best of all Rock/Metal genres will be offered up for the industry in a slam bang event of heavy duty networking. The Showcase also gives the general public a peek inside the recording industry.

The radio show is also known for featuring the best A-List superstar guests as well. J-Rock and Patty have been visited in their Dungeon by ROB ZOMBIE, SHERI MOON ZOMBIE, STEVE VAI, PAUL GILBERT, RUDY SARZO, WAYNE STATIC, BILLY SHEEHAN, BILL WARD, DAVID ELLEFSON, JON ANDERSON from YES, CARMINE APPICE, VINNY APPICE, ALAN PARSONS, MAX CAVALERA,, PAGE HAMILTON, MICHAEL WILTON from QUEENSRYCHE, BUMBLEFOOT from GUNS N ROSES, JOHN 5, RAYMOND HERRERA, ROSS THE BOSS, RICK DERRINGER, MICHAEL ANGELO BATIO, and tons more. Also entire band interviews with DOWN, BLUE OYSTER CULT, KAMELOT, KMFDM, ANVIL, SHADOWS FALL, SAINT VITUS, LORDS OF ACID, FIREHOUSE, HELIX, SOULFLY, HED PE, CROSSFADE, ONE EYED DOLL, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD, STEELHEART, HATEBREED, LILLIAN AXE, RED FANG and many many more. They are also embedded in the horror movie industry, and feature many of the great players of the industry such as ROB & SHERI MOON ZOMBIE, BILL MOSELEY, SID HAIG, MICHAEL BERRYMAN, LINNEA QUIGLEY, LESLIE EASTERBROOK, SHAWNEE SMITH, TYLER MANE, CLEVE HALL, and many more They even hung out with CARMEN ELECTRA at her Super Bowl Party in Tampa 2010.

J-Rock and Patty are continually making hard rock history with their broadcast. They feature the best signed, and unsigned bands every Monday night. And right now, it's the most exciting time to tune in as they are gearing up for the competitions. The duo can also be seen hosting, and organizing national concert events and festivals at The State Theatre in St. Petersburg Florida, and other high visibility locations. Their name is also a staple on the music scene worldwide.

J-Rock and Patty have been in the music scene individually for over 30 years. J-Rock is a well known musician from South Jersey who has toured with some of the biggest bands in the world in the 80's and 90's. Many of his 8 albums have charted internationally. He's also a well known former rock journalist, and presently is an Events Coordinator, and A&R consultant for many record labels, and agents. Patty was a corporate radio host from Connecticut, and worked in television 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 aired on small FM markets around the country who are fed up with corporate domination and the 'same old' revolving playlist. They also have a new TV show which is currently being shopped to networks. You can view these episodes at their site. Although they have that rebellious, and dark edge, their broadcast 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 tune in every Monday night at 7:00pm (est usa).

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 and agents around the globe. His method is finding the alternative to the pop sensations being bred on reality music TV and shattering that concept. He's a rock guy that understands the other side of a rapidly recovering marketable industry that was damaged by these music reality shows. The time is now for the rock/metal bands to shine and put an end to this American Idol mentality once and for all.

The Rock Solid Pressure Radio Competitions deal with 'real' screened bands who are ready for the next level. Bands that have spent time in the field. Touring bands that have networked and developed a fanbase. Bands that have spent time in the trenches. It's not an easy task to find bands who are mere inches from dominating the world. The industry is overloaded with extremely bad bands, and it overshadows the great talent that is out there. But every year, they unleash an amazing array of unsigned rockers that shock and amaze. So strap on the battle helmets and get ready to vote for these amazing bands on Feb 17th and Feb 24th
