      EVENT DETAILS
      Yacht Rock Revue


      Youre Welcome! The Yacht Rock Revue is the Greatest Show on Surf and the finest tribute to 70s light rock to ever perform anywhere. Ever. Their spoton renditions of Hall & Oates, Michael McDonald, Steely Dan, and the rest of the TimeLife Infomercial Catalog have enthralled fans across the United States. It goes without saying they have taken their act to the high seas, performing showcase sets on music cruises with Weezer, Kid Rock, Train, Zac Brown Band, Sister Hazel, and fitness guru Jillian Michaels. By blurring the lines between a tribute, an original act, and a comedic troupe, the Yacht Rock Revue has forged a unique niche market and a special bond with their fans. The band attacks each song as if it were their own, and the energy exchanged between the band and the crowd has more in common with a stadium U2 show than that of a typical bar band. The band has won accolades ranging from Best Place to Get Drunk With Your Dad to Best Overall Music Act in Atlanta to Best Place to Start an Extramarital Affair, and has been namedropped by the New York Times, Pitchfork, the Guardian UK, Spin, TimeOut New York, Billboard, MTV.com, and (probably) your mom at her last cocktail party. Speaking of namedropping, members of the band have played onstage with members of Weezer, Billy Joel, Walter Egan, .38 Special, John Mayer, Zac Brown Band, Little River Band, Sheryl Crow, Noel Gallagher, Starbuck, Sarah McLachlan, Don Henley, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Neil Finn, Jellyfish, Devo, Nine Inch Nails, Joan Jett, Wet Willie, Bon Jovi, Skid Row, and the Saturday Night Live Band. (None of those were a joke.) The Yacht Rock Revue has packed out shows at historic venues including the Variety Playhouse in Atlanta, the Knitting Factory in New York City, Athens famed Georgia Theatre, Washington DCs State Theatre, and Nashvilles Mercy Lounge. They played at the finish line of the Peachtree Road Race for 50,000+ two years running; played on Turner Field for 30,000 fans on July 4; and sang the National Anthem at Braves Manager Bobby Coxs last game. The Greatest Yacht Rock Revival in the Universe on August 13, 2011 was the Yacht Rock Revues smoothest success to date. Almost 2,000 fans flocked to Buckhead to see the Yacht Rock Revue headline a show that featured legit 70s icons Little River Band, Ambrosia, Peter Beckett from Player, Walter Egan, and Starbuck. 2012 promises the return of the Greatest Yacht Rock Revival in the Universe, a new album of original material, an album of live material recorded at the historic Georgia Theatre in Athens, and more sailings on the high seas and across the United States.
