Nick Saunders Cleftones

Nick Saunders - President of Blue Lion Productions
I founded this company to offer a variety
of high quality audio such as the following:


  • Film Score Audio for Film Makers

  • Audio for Singers 

  • Commercial Audio / Ads

  • Audio for Home Listening

  • Educational Audio for Children

  • and so much more in any genre 


Our educational products help students learn in creative and enjoyable ways with musical formats

that are always connected to visual text. The "Quality Music" component consists of original music

performed by numerous artists with lyrics we can hear and understand and a musical sound

reminiscent of classic "Rhythm and Blues".


I have been involved in music to some degree ever since grammar school, such as singing in

a Rock n' Roll group and then later in my high school choir. I played a horn in a marching and

maneuvering drum and bugle corps which led me to become a horn instructor, musical

arranger, and assistant drill instructor for a startup drum and bugle corps.


In 1965 this group of 50-75 kids, ranging in age from 10 to 18, won the first

Long Island Circuit Marching, and Maneuvering drum & bugle corps championship.

In the 1970's, I formed my own singing group and later a band. I wrote and

arranged the music and vocals. My group was signed by such producers as Paul Vance,

Lee Pockriss, and Malcolm Dodds. I later went on to produce my own recording sessions.

In the late eighties, I joined the legendary Rock n' Roll group The Cleftones, which resulted

in a thirty year tenure. During that time the original lead singer, and I formed a company

called "Class Act Enterprises.” One of Class Act's mandates was to honor and help 
the artists of the 50's - 60's genre of music who needed financial assistance. 


We produced four "From The Heart" concerts, all sponsored in part 
by The New York Daily News, WCBS-FM, and P.C. Richard and Son
The first of these series was an extravaganza of artists from 
the 50's - 60's era that totaled 53 performances.


These concerts were held at the Nassau Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, Long Island.
The first show honored Richard Nader, who is credited for creating the revival of this 
genre of music. His wife died in a fire, and his two sons were injured, and all of their 
belongings were destroyed. The concert raised $100,000. 
The concerts also

honored such performers as La Vern Baker, Timi Yuro, Chubby Checker,

The Cadillacs, and Bobby Lewis to name a few.
