Doug Dunn and Island Style to perform at Riverwalk Landing as part of Yorktown Maritime Weekend

     Following a full schedule of daytime events on Yorktown's opening day of Maritime Weekend Friday, June 1, the day's activities will conclude with a free concert by "Doug Dunn and Island Style," featuring the atmosphere and fun of island style Jimmy Buffett tunes at Riverwalk Landing from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.
     Doug Dunn is a former corporate CEO who hung up the suits and ties, bought a guitar and the rest is what you see today.   In 2001, Doug retired from the road to focus on writing and recording. Now, together with his new band, Doug is charging all over the country electrifying audiences everywhere with his Southern and Caribbean rock blending with Contemporary Country Music.  Doug is a sterling member of the Country Music Association, Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, The Grammy's and the Nashville Songwriters Association. 
    As a prelude to Yorktown's Shagging on the Riverwalk Concert Series beginning Thursday, June 7, Yorktown is thrilled to host Dunn at Riverwalk Landing Friday, June 1 as he captures the entire atmosphere of a Buffett concert on the beautiful Yorktown waterfront. 
     Yorktown Maritime Weekend will be celebrated with a three-day waterfront celebration including free public tours of visiting tall ships and military vessels, static displays, market days, a parade of sail and much more.  
This concert is free and open to the public. Guests are encouraged to arrive early and bring blankets and/or lawn chairs. Food will be available for purchase.
