Spanky and the Love Handles / Bio

Clark Vreeland is a very well loved and respected fixture in the New Orleans and Atlanta Arts and Music community. Born and raised in New Orleans, Clark began his musical life at the age of 12 showcasing his talents on television and local events on drums. By the time he was 15 he was playing the French Quarter strip bars and jazz clubs and added guitar to his tool bag. During the 1970’s Clark had the opportunity to work with Earl King (who was a close mentor), Lee Dorsey and Professor Longhair. While being one of the founding members of the Rhapsodizers (precursor to the Radiators), Clark also crossed paths with members of the Meters, George Porter and Zig Modiliste. Clark’s talent lies heavily in writing and producing as well as performing. The music he has written over the years has influenced many fans and those who have worked with him. It is what makes him stand out. Among producing Sue Wilkinson, Greg Barrett, Code Blue, The Love Handles and many others, he has produced his own solo record “Years in Exile”. Clark also produced a CD by the Subdudes called “Primitive Streak” which included guest performance from Bonnie Rait.
