Yacht Rock and Roll: The Ultimate Light-Rock Experience
The ’70s and ’80s were a time of unparalleled smoothness in America. Don Johnson and Farrah Fawcett led a fashion revolution centered on flashy clothes and feathery hair while soft-rock legends such as Michael McDonald, Christopher Cross, Hall & Oates ruled the airwaves. This was the era of the ballad, the era that fueled every prom since with melodic reasons to get close, and gave every adolescent words to express their love and cassette tapes to throw at anyone who didn’t understand their passion. And Yacht Rock and Roll brings that time of big voices and bigger lapels back. Whether looking to relive a bygone era or to visit a time they’ve never seen, reminiscent revelers are encouraged to dress in their favorite polyester and sunglasses combo for a night on a floor electrified with DJ-spun tunes such as “Dance the Night Away” and “Come Sail Away.”
St. Andrew's Hall
What was once the meeting spot for the Saint Andrew's Society of Detroit now hosts the hottest live acts and dance parties, including performances by Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, and Iggy Pop. The Main Ballroom sports a tricked-out sound-and-lighting system, a VIP balcony, a hardwood dance floor, and a bar more than 35 feet long. The lower level of The Shelter lives up to its name, as red curtains and a cabaret offer an escape to mellower pastures. Upstairs at The Burns Room, patrons chill out on lounge furniture under chandeliers while savoring views of Congress and the RenCen.
