Yacht Rock Revue
Yacht Rock Revue samples their catalog of cover hits
Yacht Rock Revue has been touted as the Best Overall Music Act in Atlanta, but they might be most proud of their show being named the Best Place to Get Drunk with Your Dad and the Best Place to Start an Extramarital Affair. Equal parts tribute act and polyester-hoarding comedy troupe, the retro-loving pranksters have perfected the act of party instigation in their loving throwback to the mellow sounds of ’70s soft rock. But while the act may poke affectionate fun at the bygone era, the musical professionalism is tighter than Brooke Shields’s Calvins, earning them performances with the likes of Weezer and Kid Rock. For the Boats ‘N Hoes Party, the seven-piece pack of surrogate Doobie Brothers straps on their oversized sunglasses for a set of smooth classic-rock hits fit for binge watching of The Merv Griffin Show. Their buoyant repertoire includes the easygoing jams of Hall & Oates, Steely Dan, Michael McDonald, and dentist-office rarities Starbuck, whom Yacht Rock Revue recently helped reunite.
