Welcome & Greetings to All from Reef Rider Productions; This site is meant to connect Artists with each other and the Public. I am Charles E. Compton Sr. I'm a retired USAR Army Aviator (Huey's & Black Hawk's), with nothing more than the desire to help, at no cost, Show-Case both known and unknown Artists at my expense. The only promise from us; Free Exposure. I am sick and tired of searching for and finding sites that profit by praying on other's hopes and dreams, claiming to be Record Executives & Publishers, Producers, etc. I played around in the music biz in South Florida at Criteria Recording Studios, Miami, in the mid 70's. I had the Privilege & Honor of working with and around some of the Greatest Musical Talents in the World, and that's an understatement. Being Retired-Semi-Retired is sweet. My wishes will be fulfilled if you get recognized via my site. And for you that already have the recognition, I thank you so much for being on my site and allowing me to post you. This site is totally free to visit (and join shortly). I will be allowing certain Artists with "Professionally Based Material Only" to be posted, after my personal screening of submissions is approved. For those of you that don't cut it in my book, keep trying, and come back. This site will evolve as we go. You will be able to post your links, music, video clips of performances, books, and artisans work. You will not only be turned onto some of the world's best talent, you will be able to keep up with what's new in their respective genres and realms, latest work, tours, etc. The links I post will be worth visiting, this I promise, and this site will be here as long as I am alive. Please stay tuned for further updates. Thank you. Respectfully, Chuck Sr.
Footnote; Even though I own the "Reef Rider Productions" name since the 70's, it was originally my Coral Shores High School, Tavernier, Florida, Classmate, Rob Hyatt's motorcycle groups name, "The Reef Riders", that a few of my old classmates belonged to that inspired the name. Great memories. Rob was a Professional Drummer and my good friend and drumming mentor. One of Rob's bands had at least one song I know of, from his band, played by and put on a "Foreigner" album, if I'm not mistaken. Rob passed away in June 2009 from emphysema at the age of 56. I am dedicating this site in Rob's memory. I believe Rob would have liked this websites concept and meaning. You were always a true friend and inspiration to us all. We all miss you and may God Bless you Rob Hyatt. RIP.
How is everything with you,I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately.I have something very vital to disclose to you,but I found it difficult to express myself here,since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on(firstname.lastname@example.org)for the full details. Have a nice day.
Thanks Chuck for the introduction. I'm a "blues baby" - loved it since before I could talk. Will keep you in mind for suitable projects. Not sure if Sonny Del Rio is on your radar but he's an old buddy of mine (part of CROWBAR w King Biscuit Boy) and he's always looking to connect with industry people. sonnydelrio.com
Truly an honor in having you among my colleagues and friends. I could not agree with you more in refrence to your bio. It is truly a pleasure to find one of the same, as myself in the efforts to help others not take from them.
