Woodstock City Park - Free Concert, Picnic, dancing -Yacht Rock Revue

Woodstock City Park - FREE CONCERT AND PICNIC  FEATURING YACHT ROCK REVUE - Saturday, June 8 at 6:30 PM for picnic, dancing and partying. Concert starts at 7:30 pm.


Yacht Rock Revue™ is the Greatest Show on Surf and the finest tribute to ‘70s light rock to ever perform anywhere.  Ever.  Their spot-on renditions of Hall & Oates, Michael McDonald, Steely Dan, and the rest of the Time-LifeInfomercial Catalog have enthralled fans across the United States.  It goes without saying they have taken their act to the high seas, performing showcase sets on music cruises with Weezer, Kid Rock, Train, Zac Brown Band, Sister Hazel, and fitness guru Jillian Michaels.

By blurring the lines between a tribute, an original act, and a comedic troupe, the Yacht Rock Revue™ has forged a unique niche market and a special bond with their fans.  The band attacks each song as if it were their own, and the energy exchanged between the band and the crowd has more in common with a stadium U2 show than that of a typical bar band.

The band has won accolades ranging from “Best Place to Get Drunk With Your Dad” to “Best Overall Music Act in Atlanta” to “Best Place to Start an Extramarital Affair,” and has been name-dropped by the New York TimesPitchfork, the Guardian UK,SpinTimeOut New YorkBillboardMTV.com, and (probably) your mom at her last cocktail party.

Speaking of name-dropping, members of the band have played on-stage with members of Weezer, Billy Joel, Walter Egan, .38 Special, John Mayer, Zac Brown Band, Little River Band, Sheryl Crow, Noel Gallagher, Starbuck, Sarah McLachlan, Don Henley, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Neil Finn, Jellyfish, Devo, Nine Inch Nails, Joan Jett, Wet Willie, Bon Jovi, Skid Row, and the Saturday Night Live Band.  (None of those were a joke.)

 

Bring your favorite Food and Drink!

Best to get their by 6:30 pm for dining. The band starts promptly, at 7:30.

Blankets and lawn chairs may be set up in the park after 4 p.m.  
While tables are not normally allowed in the Park, Celebrate Atlanta has been given permission to set up food tables.  Please bring a main dish, side dish, dessert, beverages and picnic appropriate items to share.

So join us for a night of great tunes provided by Yacht Rock Review, group picnic  as we watch the sunset and dance under the stars in Woodstock, Celebrate Atlanta style.

    I live across the street from Downtown Woodstock Park and I can tell you this is going to be one of the best and most crowded concerts. Parking can be a pain , there is public parking behind Woodstock Pharmacy, and across from Firestone . Some in the neighborhood, but make sure park in designated parking spots. Good Luck and see you all there.

    Yacht Rock Revue is probably the best 70's and 80's cover band I have ever attended. I so wish I was going to be in town to go. Anyone who is going will have a great time and LISTEN TO THE MUSIC.
