5 Minutes – Baby Rocket Show and Guppy Effect Band Practice
Hi. It’s Joe.
It’s a beautiful day out and my awesome band GUPPY EFFECT has band practice today. We are going to practice the 70s classic heavy metal album that we are going to perform at Heavy Metal Fest in Delavan WI next Saturday, August 27.
I really wish that Guppy Effect had a larger following because the band is amazingly good. Every time someone hears us live for the first time, they tell us how awesome we are. Some of these people become follow up fans who come to other shows, but most don’t.
I think the main reason is because we are rockers, not business people or charlatan PR/marketing types. We specialize in rocking an unparalleled and unprecedennted rock show every time we play. The product itself is flawless and consistently amazing. We just aren’t trained to promote or sell the product.
As such, we play fewer but higher quality shows (quality vs quantity) and we try to play venues where there will be a lot of people. Private parties are the best. People are already there to have a good time and Guppy Effect’s rock just takes it to a whole new level of excitement and fun.
On Saturday, Rocktober 8, Guppy Effect is going to rock the birthday party of Clay Rehm, guitarist for Baby Rocket, the other band I play bass for. It’s going to be a blast. Ken of Baby Rocket drumming fame will be at the party, so you can bet there will be a Baby Rocket set at some point during the party.
The attached pics of Baby Rocket band members are from the show we played at the Nautigal in Madison last night. That was also a private party, for the Madison Yacht Club. Those yuppies can really unleash the fury when it comes to rock-n-roll partying.
