The Producers Blues Band
One of the most exciting and stylish bands on the circuit, The Producers are among the leaders of the current Blues phenomenon topped by Joe Bonamassa and John Mayer.
Well they are back!
After two excellent visits to the Lane theatre last year they decided that a return visit was an absolute must in this year’s calendar. The band are all agreed that the Lane Theatre that this is one of the best small theatre venues they have played at, the welcome by the staff and the audience having being a joy! and are really looking forward to their return!
As to the The Producers they are really something special, playing the freshest live blues in Britain today. Concerned with feel and attitude rather than slavishly copying ‘hand me down’ American music,
The Producers move effortlessly between their own well crafted material and seriously reinvigorated classics stamped with their own characteristic identity.
After celebrating their barnstorming 25th anniversary tour last year The Producers have embarked on another nationwide tour across the country visiting those venues they missed and revisiting many of last years including the Lane Theatre, building on their already massive audience at sell-out club dates and continuing to develop their impressive reputation that no one can ignore.
Being invited to play prestigious Festival slots is always a sign of a band on its way, however receiving invitations to open concerts for luminaries like John Mayall, Taj Mahal, Dr John, Peter Green and Robert Cray has quickly led to The Producers becoming a major attraction in their own right. With thirteen acclaimed albums to their credit, air play and live appearances across Europe, the States, the Bahamas, Australia and New Zealand, The Producers are playing headline dates and rightfully assuming a prominent position on blues awards podiums.
Dave Saunders and Harry Skinner formed The Producers in 1990. They went on to be one the most popular blues outfit in the country at that time. Winners of the ‘Blues Band of the Year’ award 4 times, releasing 13 CD albums to date, one of which ‘Ain’t No Love in the World’ was nominated for the ‘Best Blues Album’ award..
The Producers highly acclaimed CD and Vinyl record ‘London Blues’ released in 2011 created significant excitement within the blues community and the music industry in general. The album featured guests Paul Beavis (Go West, Low Riders) Andy Fairweather Low (Eric Clapton, Roger Waters) Ben Waters and 5 times blues award winner Paul Lamb on Piano and Harmonica respectively with all the material being self penned originals. .
Their last album “25 Years” was, released to coincide with the 25 years tour and reflects the values of their first album (Escape from Muswell Hill 1992) It features 4 new original songs and a selection of old favourites often performed on stage but never before recorded. Thus connecting the band to both its past and its present.
The band regularly sell out venues around the country, headlining many festivals including Colne, Burnley, Stanley Blues, Dublin Templebar
