In 2016 The Producers, one of the UKs top blues bands celebrated their 25th anniversary! Where does the time go?
During that time they have had varying members on drums, guitars, harmonica and keyboards supporting the central Producers core of band founders guitarist Harry Skinner and bassist Dave Saunders. They have released nine albums ( firstly on Cassette before CDs were invented, with the last ‘London Blues’ being on both CD and double vinyl LP!) had many guests appearing with them including Jethro Tulls Martin Barre, Dave Kelly, The Groundhogs Tony McPhee, Andy Fairweather Low and the brass section of the Ray Charles Orchestra including the Raelets!
They have travelled to Australia, New Zealand, the USA, the Bahamas and all over the UK and most of Europe, played at or headlined most of the major blues festivals in the UK, Ireland and Europe plus the Tauranga Jazz and Blues Festival in New Zealand, Freeport Blues Festival, the Bahamas and the Atlanta Blues Festival USA.
The Producers are still out there 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, still barnstorming across the country playing sell-out club, theatre and festival dates having developed an impressive reputation over 25 years that no one can ignore.
Catch them on tour where you can be among the first to buy the new 25th Anniversary album which has seen the band revert back to the original 60s R’n’B sound. Recorded live in the studio, no ‘frills’ or 10 minute guitar solos etc, just rocking R’n’B – this is how Lazy Lester and the early Stones did it (tracks from both are featured on the album)
