Brian Bonhomme plays a mix of acoustic rock, emphasizing the classic 60's and 70's songs of his native Great Britain!!
From 1980 to 1986 Brian was the frontman of the British pop band Roman Holliday. Brian left school at 16 to pursue a music career. He advertised for musicians in the local newspaper, and through several lineup changes and countless gigs in and around his home county of Essex, near London, the band started to take shape. “The first thing we released was an EP,” Bonhomme said. “We had a single called ‘Stand By’ that got a lot of radio in Britain and in the States, too. We then released ‘Don’t Try To Stop It,’ which was the one that was a hit in Britain.”
The band appeared on “Top of The Pops,” a legendary but now defunct BBC television show that featured videos and prerecorded live performances from top-40 artists. The song reached number 14 on the British charts, sharing the top 40 with Elton John, The Cure, The Police and The Style Council, among others.
Brian is now performing locally and is a Professor at Youngstown State University. This is another don't miss show!!
