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

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.
