The Yacht Rock Revue call their shows “the greatest show on surf;” and after seeing their performance live, it’s hard to discredit that.
Who is the Yacht Rock Revue?
In short, it’s a band that celebrates everything that was great with the ‘70s. Back in that decade, disco and light rock were all the rage on the music scene, with legendary artists such as Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers, and Hall & Oates getting their start within the decade.
Yacht Rock Revue essentially exists to bring the sound back to life for both an audience that is clamoring for the sounds of old, and a new generation who are now tapping into the harmonic, soft sounds that gave birth to light rock. Originally called “Y-O-U,” the band had the same dreams and aspirations as other budding rock outfits.
They would hit their stride by recreating the sound of ‘70s soft rock, and by 2010, Yacht Rock Revue would be on their way to being one of the great tribute bands ever created. They’ve won numerous awards for their comedy and music, and seeing this band live and in person is a treat all to itself.
