Yacht Rock Revue Announces “Hot Dads In Tight Jeans” U.S. Tour

The Atlanta-based torchbearer of lite-rock culture Yacht Rock Revue has announced their 2020 “Hot Dads In Tight Jeans” U.S tour. In partnership with Live Nation and SiriusXM, the group will take their acclaimed show back on the road beginning in January. Tickets will be available starting October 18th at 10AM local time

An immersive and fan-oriented live experience, YRR’s spot-on renditions of Hall & Oates, Michael McDonald, Steely Dan, and the other soft rock hit makers of the 1970’s enthralled fans across the United States. The group goes far beyond the “tribute” category by regularly joining their heroes on stage: John Oates, Eddie Money, Little River Band, Pablo Cruise, Starship, Bobby Kimball of Toto and more icons of the era have joined them onstage to perform their hits.

Yacht Rock Revue frontman Nick Niespodziani remarks, “We’re in the business of soft rock, and business has been good. From a rickety booze cruise on the East River to two nights at Webster Hall in Manhattan, from a smoky basement in Atlanta to a seven thousand seat amphitheater… the Nation of Smooth has stretched across the USA like a good pair of yoga pants. We’ve gotten this far on Hall & Oates, dance moves we learned from our moms and really expensive music educations… but on this tour, we’re out to prove we’re more than just Hot Dads in Tight Jeans.”

The band have also shared a live video of them performing Hall & Oates’ “She’s Gone,” which underscores why YRR has won accolades ranging from “Best Place to Get Drunk With Your Dad” to “Best Place to Start an Extramarital Affair.”

Yacht Rock Revue’s note-perfect performances and onstage charisma have built a growing fan base of fans nationwide. The growing crowds adorned in captain’s hats and boat shoes (endearingly known as “The Nation of Smooth”) are a testament to the band’s growing status as icons of the subculture, and attracted the attention of SiriusXM, culminating in a partnership deal in support of the tour. Live Nation will also be partnering for much of the tour, and Live Nation Director of Touring Andy Messersmith writes that “After seeing the band build in our venues in the early stages, their upward trajectory as a touring artist became especially evident and that led us to pursue the partnership.  It’s a truly special artist that can create a unique culture and loyalty amongst their fanbase that leads to major growth each time they play a market.”
