For the first time, Taste of Atlanta will continue into the evening on Saturday of festival weekend with a concert. Gates open at 7:00pm on October 19, the famed seven-man band Yacht Rock Revue will be crooning classic hits and Halloween tunes the crowd loves to sing along to for an evening to remember at Historic Fourth Ward Park.
Guests may bring their own chairs and blankets to enjoy tunes on the lawn. Local food trucks will be selling bites for purchase and beer, wine and cocktails will be available at several on-site bars.
Taste of Atlanta is a rain or shine event. No refunds or exchanges.
The Yacht Rock Revue is everything the late 70's and early 80's should've been: massive sing-along soft rock hits, tight bell-bottom jeans, impeccable musicianship, polyester shirts, glorious vocal harmonies, sunglasses at night, breezy dancing and sax...lots of sax. "They're a trip down memory lane that skips all the bad neighborhoods," according to Robbie Dupree. It's pure Escape (The Piña Colada Song.)
From Hall & Oates, Kenny Loggins and Michael Jackson to one-hit wonders like "Brandy" and "Baby Come Back," YRR brings stadium rock energy to the music you love from your dentist's office. Hundreds of songs - many of which would be the original artist's encore - keep audiences guessing what's next. But they know every word, and Toto's "Africa" has never sounded so good.
