Yacht RockTober is here and Yachty by Nature is hitting the high seas. Although we’ve been on the wedding circuit lately, we return to Arizona on October 21 and hit the Harp Inn for our maiden voyage there for a Halloween party on October 26. So, don’t miss the boat and watch for new dates on the calendar! Furthermore, read on Yacht Rocktober to find out the fun we’ve been having all summer 🙂
Seas the Day!
July was filled with a big Captain Carl birthday concert at Arroyo Trabuco and Ladera Ranch! In fact, the next day at Ladera Ranch, we packed the park with about 3,000 smooth sailing captains and captainettes. Additionally, the video above featured some really cruizy back up dancers and singers at the concert. More importantly, they rocked the Yacht hard for an impressive rendition of Rock With You by Michael Jackson. Indeed, thank you Sally and the girls.
All in all, August was punctuated by a Yachty cruise on the Colorado River. Inasmuch, Yachty by Nature took over the Tropicana Resort and Casino in Laughlin among a sea of captains hats. As a matter of fact, we rocked the yacht with a crew of 300. And, the Yacht Rock scene was literally off the charts. We look forward to a triumphant return as we’ve booked March 30, 2019 for another smooth pleasure cruise.
More importantly, we closed out August at the Monrovia Concert in the Park. In addition, we finally caught the ear of the coiners of the term “Yacht Rock”. We had none other than J.D. Ryznar tuning in to our set list and the resulting tweet storm was awesome. He is the host of the podcast Beyond Yacht Rock found here and he had a bunch of stellar tweets about us playing some pretty damn good #yachtrock ! Go Team Yachty! Here’s an excerpt of the Yachty tweet storm 🙂 Similarly, it was amazing to measure up to the discerning smooth taste of the guys who invented the genre. Yacht RockTober coming soon…
Yacht Rocktober September Tour!
Altogether, it was an epic summer of smooth and after a quick break, we opened a hot September. In addition to opening for the Spazmatics at Silver Lakes in Eastvale, we had a really fun audience at the Pacific Marine Mammal Center fundraiser in Laguna Beach the next evening. From there, we hopped on our flight to Sacramento the next week for a killer wedding up on the Sacramento River delta. Playing at a mansion in Northern California was a blast! Equally important, spending late nights up at the band house in Lodi was extra awesome.
Comparatively, it didn’t get any quieter for us the rest of the month. We came back the next week for a rager at Costello’s on the 21st for Alyssa Coffman’s birthday. And then, a perfect Saturday afternoon gig on the sand at Sea Legs in Huntington Beach the very next day was the sweetest smooth imaginable. By and large, the next weekend at a new venue in Campus Jax. Additionally, one of our favorite haunts, Black Marlin for a Sunday Funday brought a smooth September to a close. Throw in a few more choice 70’s soft rock tunes and our set is always evolving and growing; our song list is outta control!
Now, off to Yacht RockTober! We are playing plenty of weddings and then heading off to Joshua Tree for Babes Ride Out on October 20 and then the Arizona State Fair on October 21 . Get your tickets now! Lastly, we come back to our old stomping grounds at the Harp Inn in Costa Mesa for a Halloween gig on October 26. Get your Yachty costume ready for cash prizes that night! Happy Yacht RockTober everybody, stay saxy and come see us!
