Let's get one thing out of the way quickly: The Yacht Rock Revue is a band, not an assemblage of your favorite '70s soft-rockers. This Atlanta group consists of accomplished players who grew up on the lite sounds of AM radio (probably while shopping with mom) and figured they'd be better off as a full-time cover band than as the struggling indie musicians they once were. And successful they have been, garnering enough of a following in their hometown to establish their own mini-festival (the Yacht Rock Revival) and build out a booking calendar that has them playing year-round. (Though, honestly, we all know summer is the best time for soft rock.) And while there's a thick strain of wink-and-nod irony to their performances, it's also clear that these guys don't treat their shows as a joke, opting instead to deliver spot-on renditions of everything from Christopher Cross and Steely Dan to Ambrosia, Ace, Walter Egan and other less-heralded genre titans.
