The Producers – Uk award-winning blues band

It was over 25 years and thirteen albums ago that the Producers first appeared on the UK music scene and since then they have gigged their version of the blues in clubs, theatres and on major festival stages worldwide and they continue to do so.

The development of the band over that time has seen seven line up changes but the founders of the band, Harry Skinner and Dave Saunders remain in place and the latest and longest incarnation (now ten years old) features Ray Drury (keys) and Biff Smith (drums). It was this line up that produced the acclaimed London Blues album of 2011.

Following on from London Blues was always going to be tough but the 2016 anniversary of the band has inspired a return to the values of the Producers’ first album (‘Escape from Muswell Hell’ 1992). Rhythm and Blues is the order of the day here and this album offers four new original songs along with a selection of tunes that the band have used live over the last twenty five years but never previously recorded.

Their latest album is unashamedly raw and gutsy, it offers a response to the sophistication of London Blues and above all it re-connects the band to its past.

Well that was a very pleasant afternoon! A relaxed stroll through blues and more in the company of Ray, enduring unspeakable nipple injury on the accordian, Biff on the drums, Dave on bass and the more than slightly hung over Gemma and team at the Taphouse. It was a world away from the world cup; a platform 9 and three quarters if you like, to which only a few select souls found their way and climbed on board the train to nowhere that is the Sunday session. Lovely stuff, thanks to all, see you at the gig in Farnham on Thursday. ... See MoreSee Less

We're all a bit sad about the football result but every cloud has a silver lining; on this occasion it means that the Producers WILL be playing at the Taphouse on Sunday afternoon at 4pm. Obviously if you are French or Croatian you might be busy but if you need a break from the tension you could join us too. ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks to all you fine people at New Forest Arts Centre last night. What a lovely gig it was. Really enjoyed the finger picking numbers and the requests and it was good to re-visit a couple of older tunes (even with the wayward lyrics) Can't wait to come back and do it all again, see you again soon. ...
