By blurring the lines between a tribute, and 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 name-dropped 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 name-dropping, members of the band have played on-stage 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 DC’s State Theatre, and Nashville’s 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 Cox’s last game.
The Greatest Yacht Rock Revival in the Universe on August 13, 2011 was the Yacht Rock Revue’s 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 Theater in Athens, and more sailings on the high seas and across the United States.
