YACHT ROCK REVUE
Yacht Rock Revue will be setting sail, so to speak, this summer, bringing their mellow music tribute act to cities around North America. “We play Hall & Oates, Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins and Toto with the on-stage energy of Van Halen or AC/DC. Actually don’t print that - it’s our secret sauce,” said YRR singer Nicholas Niespodziani. The tour kicks off April 14 in Charlotte, NC and runs through September 10 in Austin. There's a NYC show at The Rooftop at Pier 17 on July 7 and an L.A. date at The Wiltern on August 13. Head here for all dates and tickets.
