Live Shows

Memories of shows gone by

Lots of folks have written in telling me when and where they have seen the Producers. Consensus is that they were a very popular college band in the Southeast. They were the most popular in Atlanta, New Orleans, and in Wisconsin.

Our heroes have opened for acts including The Police (a few times), INXS, Go Gos, Hall & Oates (when they were huge), and others.

The following are some of the places they appeared. If you know others, let me know and I'll include them - try to include club name and date. Also if you have stained coctail napkins (like Sandy Reda's here!) or other cool stuff you could photograph or scan and send to me, I would include it as well.

  • New Orleans - Tipitina's
  • New Orleans - Ole Man River's (on the West Bank) in the summer of 1982. This is the time I saw them.
  • Denver (1982)
  • University of Alabama, Georgia, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, Georgia Tech, and many other Southern Universities (82 thru 86)
