Review - Yacht Rock Revue
I think I've pretty completely documented my current obsession, the Beyond Yacht Rock podcast.  It has changed the way I look at an entire era of music.  Of course, my obsessive nature means that I've felt the need to share all of my new insights with my wife.  She has humored me, but she's only willing to take so much.

Imagine then her chagrin when I informed her that I'd won a pair of tickets to the Yacht Rock Revue concert at the Houston House of Blues last week.

She went anyway.

So, who are the Yacht Rock Revue?  Here's a link to their website.  I'll wait here while you check it out.



With a setlist heavy on the yacht rock and 70s AM gold, the band hit the stage and totally owned their gimmick.

Don't believe me?  I've got video proof.  WATCH!

That's quality yacht right there kids. There were some definite Nyachts in the set list (Let's Dance, You Can Call Me Al, Footloose), but overall the mix was right on.

The crowd, at the arena for a landlocked booze cruise, was fully into it. There were a lot of captain's hats, which I have to assume were being sold at the merch booth.

I also want to pay special homage to the bass player who was rocking the feathered hair and Fu-Manchu (and channeling some Eddie Money).  I have to think its in the rider, but for the entire night, he seemed to be fulling wind blown when nobody else was.  Nice touch TB Player.


 
From the fully weaponized sax of Baker Street to the jazz nooding of Steely Dan, Yacht Rock Revue has it all down to an art. It's pop art, but isn't that what we really like?

Yacht Rock Revue is on tour now. Check out their website for dates near you. Check them out and enjoy the smooth.
