If you like pina coladas, you will love the Yacht Rock Revue. Specializing in soft rock from the '70s and early '80s, the group plays classics sure to please all ages. Think high-rise, tight bell-bottoms and polyester graphic shirts invoking tropical sunsets with a smooth breeze just made for dancing to tunes like "What a Fool Believes" by Michael McDonald or "Maneater" by Hall and Oates. Playing the underground genre as a basement band in 2007, Yacht Rock Revue now regularly sells out venues like the Chastain Park Amphitheatre in Atlanta. YRR has teamed up with Sirius XM's Yacht Rock Channel to bring the smooth and dulcet sounds of mom-rock to you.
From Tribute Band to Co-headliners
Yacht Rock Revue is not only playing tribute to '70s mullet heroes, but the band members also play alongside many of the greats they admire. The group often plays with idols such as Eddie Money, Little River Band and Pablo Cruise. YRR has sailed smoothly on many cruises that included acts such as Kid Rock, Train and Heart. Playing diverse locations like the Playboy Mansion and the NCAA Final Four, YRR is set to coast onto a shore near you.

Where does the name Yacht Rock come from?
According to Robbie Dupree, YRR is "a trip down memory lane that skips all the bad neighborhoods." Described by some as the highly produced, mild-tempo hits from Southern California released between 1976 to 1984, the vibe is very much early yuppies sipping adult beverages on yachts making day trips to Catalina Island. According to J.D. Ryznar, he created the term Yacht Rock to classify a type of music that is great for relaxing on a boat.
What are some hits you might expect YRR to cover?
The list is virtually endless, but a typical setlist can include one-hit wonders like "Brandy" by Looking Glass and "Baby, Come Back" by Player or classics from multi-hit artists like The Eagles, who sang "Best of My Love," Kenny Loggins and Christopher Cross, known for "Sailing."
What kind of experience can I expect at a Yacht Rock Revue concert?
A YRR show is an interactive audience experience. There will be plenty of singing along to hits you know and some you forgot that you love. Also, there will be lots of aimless swaying to smooth melodies and great harmonies. John Oates attests that Yacht Rock Revue is not a satire show with music; these are serious musicians who love this music and play it well. This group is bringing the experience of smooth relaxation.
Who are the members of YRR?
Peter Olson, Nicholas Niespodziani, Mark Cobb, Greg Lee, Mark Bencuya, Mark Dannells and David Freeman are the players in YRR. Started as a side gig in 2007, Yacht Rock Revue is now a full-time gig for the Atlanta-based members. The band averages 100 shows a year and consistently sells out theaters in Los Angeles, Boston and Washington, D.C., to name a few. YRR also hosts an annual Yacht Rock Revue in Atlanta to invite the original artists to play alongside them for large crowds.
Through December 2019, the group is playing across the US in cities like Chattanooga, Tenn., and Brooklyn, New York. Grab a Yacht Rock Revue ticket, take your best honey and sway along to all those hits that made you fall in love.Back to Top
