Yacht Rock Revue


Editorial Review

Back in August, Georgetown's Saloun played host to Atlanta's Yacht Rock Revue, a tribute act that specializes in note-for-note covers of Steely Dan, Michael McDonald, Jackson Browne and Hall and Oates. The band members wore tight polyester shirts, leisure suits and captain's hats, as did many in the audience. They shimmied in unison while performing "What a Fool Believes," "Steal Away" and other soft-rock hits while the audience sang along and cheered every sax solo and bongo beat. It would come off as an inside joke if the musicianship wasn't so top-notch. The band returns for its second D.C. show this week at the Mason Inn, the Glover Park tavern formerly known as Gin & Tonic (and before that, the Grog and Tankard).
