Producers going through changes
by Russ DeVault
Atlanta's Producers, who play Saturday night at the Cotton Club
are hoping a new manager, a new producer and some new rock music will
rejuvenate the band's recording career.
The band, which plays about 170 club and college-campus dates
a year, recorded two albums for Epic during the early '80s but was
dropped in '83. "We put out one - `Run For Your Life' - with our own
money in '85, and it sold about 30,000 copies and kept our career
alive," says drummer Bryan Holmes.
"Now we've been working with producer Rodney Mills at New Age
Sight & Sound an Atlanta studio and we've signed with Derrick Sutton,
who's managed Styx, Jethro Tull and Procol Harem, and we're fairly
confident something's going to happen with a major label.
"Our new stuff is a little more guitar oriented, a bit more
rock," Holmes adds.
(The Cotton Club is at 1021 Peachtree St.; Hellhounds open at
10 p.m.; $7; 874-2523.)
