Cease and Desist : Soulshaker Trademarked by Mark Campbell - December 8, 2013

    Soulshaker is TM ( Trademark for the sale and distribution of recorded materials) and SM ( Servicemark for Live Performance ) in the USA . I have successfully 'Cease and Desisted' three other bands to this date , who were using the name Soulshaker in the USA . I have shown responsibility in doing so . If you have made the choice of using this name , please be advised that you will be making a better choice by choosing another band name .

   I don't mean to sound harsh about it ; we are all Musicians and all deserving of respect . I don't like conflict with other musicians , good vibes are our business  . Please consider this as brotherly advice . Thanks for the Respect , if in fact you have any  .

After successfully using the name far many years , I trademarked the name in 1996 . If you are using the name and gain some progress in the industry , consider what an embarrassment it would be to have to explain to a record label and management that you can no longer use the name after knowing that you would face a possible lawsuit over the use of the name . Get creative , there are still plenty of ideas for good band names .   MC

Soulshaker 1978 Single 45 RPM on eBay ?? - February 14, 2010

Not that it hasn't happened before , but I thought it was worthy to mention that we have entered the designation as collectible , offically . There were two 45's from the 70's , one from the 80's , all short runs , very rare . A happy buyer emailed me to see if he could get another copy , because he had worn it out . He plays it for his friends , and they all are now looking for copies . This is how anthologies are made ; demand creates compilations . The news is good , because there is plenty material for volumes 1 , 2 and 3 , not to mention my solo work . woo hoo .
