The Producers is a new wave and power pop band formed in the 80’s from
Atlanta, Ga. The original line up still includes Van Temple on guitar and
vocals, Kyle Henderson on bass and vocals, Wayne Famous on keyboards and
Bryan Holmes on drums and vocals.

Originally formed as a Beatles cover band named Cartoon, they changed
musical directions and began performing their own material in nightclubs
around the Atlanta area. The response to their music was so good that they
were quickly signed to CBS subsidiary Portrait Records by producer Tom
Werman, who had worked with Cheap Trick, REO Speedwagon and Mother’s Finest
among others. They released two albums for the Portrait label, The
Producers (1981) and You Make the Heat (1982). The Producers became a
regional favorite in the Southeastern United States, propelling “What She
Does to Me” onto the national Billboard Magazine single charts. “What’s He
Got”, “Certain Kinda Girl”‘ and “Who Do You Think You Are?” had some
popularity as music videos, but did not chart.They toured extensively with
Cheap Trick and The Motels. The also played with Toto and Hall and Oates.
“She Sheila” from the second album was a popular MTV video. They headlined
New Year’s Rockin Eve in 1982. They released a 3rd album, “Run for Your
Life” on their label in 1987. They were then signed by MCA to a deal, but
before they could release the album a revamping occurred at MCA, so they
released their 4th album, Coelacanth, on their own.

he Fabulous Knobs unleash some of the most potent and devastating musical gales ever to whip an audience into a dancing frenzy.

“Soul music? Perhaps it’s rhythm and blues or funk or some peculiar species of rock ‘n’ roll — or all of the above. Whatever you want to call it, it’s the Knobs’ own seductive and danceable, modern yet unmistakeably rooted in the black music that has always inspired the best urban rock. As the Stones did way back when, The Fabulous Knobs are forging the future by uncovering our musical past. …

“As the Knobs honed their own distinctive sound, the soul element came to the fore — not only Aretha, but James Brown and Sam Cooke and Wilson Pickett, as well as Chuck Berry and some renowned British soul-rockers. …
“Here is music of energy, humor and dedication. Here, for the first time on record, are the Fabulous Knobs. Turn ’em up. They’ll do the same to you.”

All sales are final. All performances are 21+ unless noted on the event page.
