Yacht Rock

Yacht Rock
YACHT ROCK (the band) pays tribute to the greatest soft-rock songs, bands and one-hit wonders of the late 70's/early 80s
Music Genre

There are bands who play some of these songs, but few bands in the entire country who are solely dedicated to presenting this beloved music in an authentic way...and fewer still who accomplish that with a group of professional musicians and vocalists like those in YACHT ROCK.

In response to the growing popularity of the musical genre which had come to be known as yacht rock, a plan and song list were put together prior to a search for musicians and vocalists who could passionately and accurately re-create this music. First, the vocals were critical! These songs, in order to deliver them accurately, needed 4-part harmonies which meant that all members of the band needed to be able to sing together in harmony. Im addition, the band needed several keyboards, saxophone, flute, a rock-steady drummer and a versatile guitarist who, unlike so many guitarists, was capable beyond question, but secure enough musically to be involved in a project that did not necessarily feature guitar playing. And thus, in 2018, Yacht Rock Band was formed.
