Yacht Rock Crew

Roll up the sleeves on your jacket, slick back your hair and get ready to set sail on the greatest musical phenomena to be found on our island nation. Ladies and gentlemen (but especially ladies) we give you the Yacht Rock Crew.

Yacht Rock Crew

Every one of us has a secret stash of great tunes that we love, know all the words for but are a tiny bit embarrassed to admit to. The Yacht Rock crew are here to tell you to 'fess up' and admit to loving these classic songs from the 70's and 80's that were performed by virtuoso, iconic bands and musicians. Come out of the soft rock closet and take a walk on the wild side with the illegitimate sons of Hugh Heffner - the Yacht Rock Crew.

The crew, self confessed saviours of soft rock, are musicians of a ridiculously high standard. To be honest, to be able to perform these songs and do them justice, you have to be. Living in the Playboy Mansion (out the back, near the bins) the boys had to maintain a low profile for many years and had nothing else to do but play with their instruments. They love Michael McDonald, they worship Steely Dan, they swoon at the sound of Hall & Oates and they can't help dancing to Kenny Loggins and Boz Scaggs. You may not even recognise some of those names but we guarantee the songs performed by these giants of music will have formed the soundtrack to a big chunk of your lives.

Yacht Rock Crew's Dad

 

 

The 'father' of the band, Hugh Heffner.

The Yacht Rock Crew are booked by discerning couples for really stand out weddings and by blue chip companies who really want to impress their guests at all kinds of corporate events. They perform all over the UK and Europe so distance is absolutely no object.  If your aim is to ensure your wedding or event is the best it can be, if you want to show off your musical taste and if you want to listen to fabulous live music played with energy and a huge amount of talent, you really shouldn't look any further than the Yacht Rock Crew.

Have a look and listen to their videos to catch the band in rehearsals at their secret seaside lair - all the music you're hearing is live and recorded in one take. There's no hiding behind pre-recorded tracks which, when you understand the complexity of some of the songs they play, is really saying something.

The nitty gritty is that this band is completely made up of some of the most in demand, highly rated session musicians in the land. They are all full time professionals who, when not cruising with the crew, perform in some of the busiest bands in the country.  All of them have performed on recordings with chart topping acts from the UK and the USA so we can guarantee you simply won't hear a better band.

As full time professionals you can also expect state of the art equipment and a completely professional attitude both on and off stage. Completely unfazed by celebrity guests or by playing on the same stage as the biggest names in pop and rock, Yacht Rock Crew are simply the smoothest, coolest and most entertaining covers band the UK has to offer.
