About

The Smooth Rock Show is the definitive tribute show to the masters of 'Yacht Rock', featuring songs by Steely Dan, Michael McDonald, Billy Joel, The Eagles, Doobie Brothers, Hall & Oates, Toto, Chicago, Foreigner, Gerry Rafferty, 10cc, Supertramp and many more.

Do you remember those halcyon days of 'AOR' or 70's light rock? This show collects your favourite sounds, songs and grooves from an era when 'smooth' meant everything.

If you've ever given that 'knowing nod of the head' listening to The Doobie Brothers fronted by Michael McDonald singing "What a Fool Believes", well that's 'Yacht Rock'.

These songs invoke memories like a sunset on the Santa Monica pier, riding along on a hot sunny day with your tunes blasting on the 8-track or cassette and the smell of those hot leather seats.

You might have been a closet Yacht Rock fan all along and just didn't know it! It's slicker than slick, enormously well-played music, from the melodically clever to the harmonically unexpected. And, of course, smoot.

Yacht Rock is soulful, well-constructed music that just makes people happy, so bring your gal or guy along, grab your friends, and enjoy this banquet of amazing laidback tunes of yesteryear from some of best musicians and singers around.

Please note: time advertised is the door time.
