Saint Augustine, FL—March 23, 2012—Francis Dunnery, an English musician, singer-songwriter, record producer and record label owner, will be performing a house concert on Sunday, April 22, at the Bayfront Marin House in Saint Augustine, Florida.
Dunnery is best known as a solo performer, and for fronting the original lineup of the band It Bites between 1982 and 1990. His credits include co-writing and singing the #6 UK hit single, “Calling All the Heroes”, in 1986.
“My wife and I have been fans of Francis Dunnery since we saw him perform in Philadelphia several years ago,” says Mike Wieber, owner of the Bayfront Marin House on Avenida Menendez. “When we heard that he was interested in performing in very small venues in the United States, we contacted him to see if he’d be interested in playing in America’s oldest city.”
Concert promoters contacted the Wiebers in early March to tell them that their inn had been chosen as a concert venue. The concert will be held in the bed and breakfast’s dining room at 7:30 pm until 9:00 pm. Dunnery will be playing from his “Tall Blonde Helicopter” tour.
Dunnery served as a sideman and musical contributor for artists as diverse as Robert Plant, Ian Brown, Lauryn Hill, Santana and Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe. He has worked as producer and/or collaborator with David Sancious, Chris Difford (of Squeeze), James Sonefeld (Hootie and the Blowfish), Erin Moran (better known as A Girl Called Eddy), and Steven Harris (ex-The Cult, Zodiac Mindwarp and the Love Reaction). In addition, Dunnery owns the Aquarian Nation record label.
