last,  so we hope to see the regulars plus our loyal Hampshire fans here

The year  The Producers, one of the UKs top blues bands celebrate 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 ten albums ( firstly on Cassette before CDs were
invented, with the last 'London Blues' being on both CD and double vinyl

Barre, Dave Kelly, The Groundhogs' Tony McPhee, Andy Fairweather Low and
