About Blimp Rock

Blimp Rock is an innovative music cooperative with one simple goal: to purchase an airship and host the world’s first blimp-based music festival over Lake Ontario, through the sale of easy listening rock. On behalf of parent corporation Blimp Rock Enterprises, Blimp Rock frontman Peter Demakos writes simple tunes that hearken back to a simpler era – a time when hydrogen was loved and not feared for its combustible properties.

First market tested in 2013 with the release of self-titled album Blimp Rock, Blimp Rock’s comedic indie rock was a surprise success for Blimp Rock Enterprises, easily outpacing their previously top-performing investment in Rolodex futures. The band’s whimsical everyday subject matter and Demakos’ laconic delivery struck a cord with audiences worldwide, and the tour dates followed. Over a star-studded ensuing year the band has toured the world, presenting the Blimp Rock message through music and PowerPoint in all the world’s finest cities: Paris, Peterborough, Berlin and Guelph.

Soap Opera, the third Blimp Rock album, was released to the public on June 16th, 2017. After rave reviews from NOW Magazine, Investors clamored for Blimp Rock Enterprises to take its stock public, however Demakos has consistently refused to release the company’s tax returns. Featuring tributes to boys who cry during movies, conflict resolution over stolen pizza, and the anthemic single ‘Let’s All Stay in Tonight’, Blimp Rock discography captures the odds and emotional ends of life on the ground with hearts longing for the skies.
