THE PRODUCERS - appearing at The Bullfrog Blues Club tomorrow, Thursday 2nd October.

On Thursday 2nd October THE PRODUCERS are at The Bullfrog Blues Club in Southsea. 

Dave Saunders and Harry Skinner formed  the band in 1990, and they soon  became one the most popular blues outfit in the country, winning the ‘Blues Band of the Year’ award 4 times. They've  released numerous  acclaimed albums, including ‘Ain’t No Love in the World’, nominated for the ‘Best Blues Album’ award, and  "London Blues" rated 8 out of 10 by "Blues in Britain", alongside albums by Chris  Rea and Savoy Brown,  and was also listed in their "Best of British Blues 2011" section.   

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. They  barnstorm across the country building a massive audience at sell-out club dates and have developed an  impressive reputation..

The Producers have  played many  prestigious festival slots and they've headlined slots Colne, Burnley, Stanley Blues, Dublin Templebar, Cork, Farnham, North Wales Blues Festivals. Belgium, Ireland, Holland and France, U.S.A. and  Australia have all played host to Producers tours.  The band  undertook a month long tour of New Zealand, during which they played at the Tauranga Blues + Jazz Festival to great acclaim. At the Cognac Blues Festival in France they were joined onstage by headliner Ray Charles’ brass section and backing singers The Raelets. d have also  opened concerts for John Mayall, Taj Mahal, Dr John, Peter Green and Robert Cray.

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. Playing at the Alexis Korner Memorial Concert at Buxton Opera House they were spotted by Peter Green's management during Peter's first  major "comeback"  gig and asked to support the Fleetwood Mac guitar legend on his first national tour for 25 years, The Producers also featured on the BBC documentary of the Buxton concert.

THE PRODUCERS appear this Thursday 2nd October at THE  BULLFROG BLUES CLUB, at The NBESCA Club, Onslow Rd, Southsea,  PO5 2N
