Hey Fiends,

Gonna keep it short and to the point..The Industry Showcase is THIS SATURDAY!! Needless to say, we’re extremely busy getting this years event together. It’s been months of hard work, but it’s finally here. Hope to see ‘everybody’ at The State Theatre for the 13 Year Anniversary. We had a killer weekend, and really let loose at The Showcase Pre-Party on Friday night..what a ‘killer’ time. We also had fun at the 3rd Annual Falling Axe Fest on Sat night. But last night, we filled up the Dungeon with some friends and let loose with a rip-roarin’ drunken broadcast that will live in infamy in the Hallowed Halls. We had a few Showcase bands down here that you will see perform on Saturday. We had the entire DRASTIC FALL and SAHE band on the slab with us. We also had ROB, PJ, and JOHN from PROGRESSIVE CHEMISTRY with us. It was one helluva party for our last Showcase special. Hope you all tuned in!! NOW let’s continue the party on Saturday

Showcase Special #2 w/ THE DEFIANT, DECEPCION, EYES LIKE 20, LEFT OF REASON / Showcase Survival Tips

0

Hey Fiends,

Well, we’re 11 days away from the 12th Annual ROCK SOLID PRESSURE INDUSTRY SHOWCASE. This is the biggest event of it’s kind in Florida. And easily one of the biggest Showcases in the country. The anticipation is at a fever pitch right now. It’s crunch time for all the performing bands, and it’s crunch time for US in getting all the last minute loose ends tied up. We work hard on this event for about 5 months, and we see great things happen for a lot of bands every year due to this one event. Our hard work pays off in the form of signings, endorsements, media interviews, management deals, tours, and lot’s more for the performers. Over the years the Showcase has become a networking juggernaut for bands that have worked hard to make a name for themselves. This year we have one of the strongest lineups in our history. To say we’re excited is an understatement.

Last night on The Rock Solid Pressure Show, we unleashed our 2nd Industry Showcase Special. We had our friends in THE DEFIANT and DECEPCION in the Dungeon with us. You’ll see both of these acts perform at the Showcase this year. It’s always a blast having THE DEFIANT on the show. We’ve been behind this band from day one, and we’re proud to say we have been behind a lot of their success in the last two years. They are a big part of the RSP Family, and we are so overjoyed that they have become one of the number one buzz bands down here. We’re also overjoyed that DECEPCION is back on the scene. We have been friends with the band since 2007. They played at our 2008 Showcase, and we can’t be happier about their reunion and their appearance at this years event. They have only done a few shows since their return, and the entire scene is talking about them. So, it was a crazy night in the Dungeon last night with some good friends, good conversation, and a good buzz (lol)

We also chatted on the hotline with EYES LIKE 20 (Alabama) and LEFT OF REASON (Wisconsin). They were the Grand Prize Winners of the RSP RADIO COMPETITIONS 2014. You’ll also see both bands perform at the Showcase this year. This is 2 amazing acts that are hometown heroes in their respective states. Both bands tour regularly, and we’re excited as hell to present them with their awards for doing such a great job in the competitions this year.

Industry Showcase Special #1 with THE DOOD

0

Hey Fiends,

As we march closer to the RSP Industry Showcase on Sept 27th. We’re unleashing weekly specials on our broadcast every Monday night. Last night was our first installment (2 more coming). And not a finer way to kick off the specials than with our friends in THE DOOD. Every week we will be featuring ‘Showcase Alumni’ in the Dungeon with us. These alumni bands will also be performing at the event this year. We had JONZEY (bass) and ROB (drums) in the Dungeon with us last night. This band is one of only a few bands that we actually call ‘Family’..They have been with us since 2007. Their name is legend down here in Florida. They have conquered the state many times over, and we love this band to death!! The addition of their new vocalist ‘Brian’ has really put this band over the edge and they are ready to take on the world. Their new music is beyond incredible, and you are all going to witness it at the Showcase this year. This band is also known for being the biggest supporters of the Florida music scene. They go to everyone’s shows, and I really hope that many bands follow their lead. It’s important for ALL bands to support one another. There are tons of bands out there that just don’t get it. If your band is not gigging on a particular night, then go out and support your peers. This is essential for your respective scene to stay alive. Jonzey and Rob really laid out some great advice last night. and for a lot of you out there, that advice is needed. This band survived and still commands a huge following by doing everything RIGHT!! It was a pleasure to have these guys in the Dungeon last night..NOW, everybody come out to the Showcase and support ’em..Like they supported YOU!

We’re going to be posting the annual ‘SHOWCASE SURVIVAL GUIDE’ in this blog within the next few days. Keep checking in. But for NOW, all the info you need is at the ‘Official’ Event Page at Facebook http://www.facebook.com/events/1453877424850220/
