Larger gigs poured in (corporate events, weddings, Park Tavern) and the band wondered if they could get the very artists they covered to join them on stage while they were out on tour. Spoiler alert: They could (everyone has a price). It started with Walter Egan at a show in Nashville, and they have since shared the stage with Eddie Money, John Oates, and Bobby Kimball from Toto, to name just a few. They’ve played at the Playboy Mansion (obviously), sang the national anthem at the Atlanta Braves game on Fourth of July (complete with Greg and Nick jumping off stage and rounding the bases), opened for Ludacris and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis during the Final Four, sailed on music cruises with Kid Rock, Train, Heart, Weezer, and Kiss (for the record, they do NOT drive the boat), and have packed out shows in NYC, Nashville, Los Angeles, and more.
The guys (who actually like each other in real life) have developed a flawless, signature style with spot-on renditions, refreshing comedy, and energetic stage presence any band would covet. They’ve received accolades like “Best Place to Get Drunk With Your Dad” to “Best Overall Music Act in Atlanta” to “Best Place to Start an Extramarital Affair,” and have been name-dropped by the New York Times, Pitchfork, the Guardian UK, Spin, TimeOut New York, Billboard, MTV.com, and (probably) your mom at her last Tupperware party.
And it’s not always pure AM Gold glory, as they perform under many aliases: Please PleaseRock Me (Beatles), Reagan Rock (Smooth ’80s) Uno Dos Tres Catorce (U2), Dazed and Confused ('70s Stoner Rock), Rock Fight (Led Zeppelin vs. the Who, Tom Petty vs. Fleetwood Mac, etc.) and so forth. Yacht Rock Revue also performs many classic albums in their entirety, including Michael Jackson's Thriller, Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, Prince's Purple Rain, the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, XTC's Black Sea, and Led Zeppelin IV. But no matter what they’re playing, it’s always a license to let loose. Smooth rock on, y’all.
Here’s a sampling of who we cover: Weezer. Talking Heads. AC/DC. Whitney Houston. Maroon 5. Bonnie Tyler. Young MC. Prince. The Killers. Deee-Lite. Alanis Morissette. Tom Petty. B-52s. Jimmy Eat World. Pat Benatar. Spice Girls. Violent Femmes. Bon Jovi. Simple Minds. Third-Eye Blind. Beastie Boys. Lenny Kravitz. Rick Springfield. Metallica. Lisa Loeb. Journey and many, MANY more.
SAVED BY THE BAND will get your party singing, dancing, and all sorts of sweaty.
