Bo Bice Signs on as
Producer of The Ventures Documentary

CHARLOTTE, NC – Musician Bo Bice has agreed to become producer of the long-awaited documentary about The Ventures, the instrumental rock band that influenced Elton John to Blondie and Peter Frampton to George Harrison.

Bice, who has his own record label Sugar Money and is lead singer of the legendary Blood Sweat & Tears, was an American Idol runner up in the fourth season. About The Ventures, he says: “They are single handedly responsible for so many bands who came after them. Without The Ventures there'd be no Aerosmith, Super Tramp, The Who, Boston, Steely Dan, The Beach Boys, etc. The creative guitar sounds and totally original compositions have inspired musicians from every genre for generations. People are still using the tools that The Ventures gave us in sound productions, engineering, recording to this day. The popularity of the band is a cult status in the music business and if you're in the industry you've used techniques, stole sounds and copied production templates from The Ventures both purposefully and subliminally at some point and time in your career.” 

Bice will produce the film along with director Staci Layne Wilson, daughter of The Ventures co- founder Don Wilson, and producers Tim Wilson, Evan Hesse and Tony Fenton.

Studio South Holdings, with offices in Charlotte and Los Angeles, is a film and entertainment management company and will coordinate production and financing of the documentary. CEO of Studio South, Bert Hesse says “adding Bice to the team will add critical musical expertise. To have such a great musical talent like Bo will enhance the overall viewer & listening experience for our audience.”
