About Us

WGE Productions

WGE Productions was formed in 1968 when a project called “Sing-A-Long At Shakey’s”, an LP on location stereo recording of the live sounds of the singing/dixie style of music that Shakey’s Pizza Parlor was producing across the USA. The musicians were Bruce L Warden, piano, and Frank Guzzardo, banjo who were appearing five nights a week providing singalong music for the audience as they ate pizza. For the recording session at the parlor, Mr. Max Ellis, string bass was added to give richness and bottom to the recording live sound. Through the association of three persons in this endeavor, the company name was developed and established from their first initials and has been in existence ever since developing different styles of projects in the music industry. Therefore, WGE Productions was born and is active currently even though the passing of Guzzardo and Ellis, Bruce L Warden is owner and CEO of the WGE complex.

In 1969, Bruce L Warden was accepted into the American Society Of Composers, Authors, & Publishers (ASCAP), first as a composer of songs.

Warden & Williamson, the Bastille Boys American Songbook

After being contacted and finally chosen as the composer for a new Broadway musical development called, “The Cotton Club”, Bruce was advised to look for a collaborator to develop song melodies and lyrics. Mr. Mike Williamson of Rockford, IL became the lyricist associate with Bruce. From this, in 2010, the music composing team of Warden & Williamson was then established and started to develop a catalogue of songs in the various styles and venues in the music world for placement.
