ASK4 Entertainment, producers of the annual ShipRocked ultimate rock music cruise vacation, are keeping ShipRocked’s community of “ShipRockers” connected year-round and also providing entertainment for music fans across the globe via “Making Waves – The ShipRocked Podcast,” which is now available for free through iTunes, Spotify and Google Podcasts.
“Making Waves” guests are interviewed by the always entertaining co-hosts Chad Nicefield (Chaddy Daddy / Wilson) and Justin Press (ASK4 Entertainment) live via the ShipRocked Facebook page, and the interview is made available via the podcast the following Monday.
The latest episode of “Making Waves” features Burton C. Bell of industrial-tinged extreme metal pioneers Fear Factory and Ascension Of The Watchers, who’s been a guest performer with ShipRocked’s all-star band The Stowaways.
Recent “Making Waves” guests include: Josh Scoggin (’68), Hyro The Hero, Joe Cotela (DED), Leo Moracchioli (FrogLeap Studios) and Tyler Baker (Goodbye June).
“Making Waves” features lighthearted interviews with ShipRocked alumni discussing their personal experiences on ShipRocked, current projects and what they’re up to during the pandemic.
ShipRocked / “Making Waves” co-host Chad Nicefield said, “Being able to stay connected to our ShipRocked family weekly thru ‘Making Waves’ has been an absolute treasure. Given our current state of living during these trying times, for not only the rock & roll community, but the music community as a whole, these conversations are not only a beacon to keep us moving but a lifeline to all of us searching for a reminder that we’re not alone in these dark waters.”
