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.
The Producers are something 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. The Producers are barnstorming across the country building a massive audience at sell-out club dates and developing an equally 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 eight acclaimed albums, 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 8 CD albums one of which ‘Ain’t No Love in the World’ was nominated for the ‘Best Blues Album’ award..
The Producers long awaited new CD and Vinyl record ‘London Blues’ is creating lots of excitement within the blues community and the music industry in general. The album features 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. .
They regularly sell out venues around the country, headlining many festivals including Colne, Burnley, Stanley Blues, Dublin Templebar, Cork, Farnham, North Wales Blues Festival. Belgium, Ireland, Holland and France played host to Producers tours and a month long tour of New Zealand included playing at the "International Tauranga Blues + Jazz Festival" where they received great acclaim. At the Cognac Blues Festival in France they were joined onstage by headliner Ray Charles’ brass section and, memorably, his ‘Raelets’ shimmying and dancing in front of them!
They were featured in session on the Paul Jones Blues Show on BBC Radio 2 and have been praised by both Johnnie Walker and Bob Harris. Peter Green the Fleetwood Mac guitar legend asked The Producers to provide the support for his first national tour for 25 years, The Producers also featured on the BBC documentary of the Buxton concert.
Harry and Dave front the band ably assisted by Ray Drury on Organ and Piano and Biff Smith on the sticks and percussion.
