Seaton gets set for the blues

The Producers

Archant

One of the most exciting and stylish new wave bands on the circuit, Bournemouth-based The Producers, will be performing in Seaton in March.

They are among the leaders of the current Blues phenomenon topped by Joe Bonamassa and John Mayer.

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 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 from 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 seven acclaimed albums, air play and live appearances across Europe, the States, Australia and New Zealand, The Producers are now 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 winning the ‘Blues Band of the Year’ award four times and releasing seven CD albums one of which Ain’t No Love in the World was nominated for the Best Blues Album award.

They regularly sold out blues clubs around the country which led to larger theatre and art centre bookings nationwide.

Many festival headliners including Colne, Burnley, Utrecht, Stanley Blues, Dublin Templebar, Cork, Farnham, North Wales Blues Festival and many others were played.

This will be the first UK concert after a tour of The Bahamas, from the Caribbean seaside to the Seaton shores!

The Producers will be appearing at the Gateway Theatre, Seaton Town Hall, on Friday, March 9. Tickets cost £10 in advance from the box office on 01297 625699, or on the door for £12. Doors open at 7.30pm, with the performance due to start at 8.30pm.
