Yacht Rock to perform at Jam Cruise..
From '76 - '84, FM radio was dominated by smooth music. With a fleet of #1 hits, the music known as yacht rock drove women crazy. The pandemonium prompted J.D. Ryznar to create the famed internet hit series known as Yacht Rock. What you are about to witness is the musical reincarnation of this momentous phenomenon. Introducing: Dan Lebowitz, Jamie Shields and Ryan Stasik, Kris Myers and Joel Cummins of Umphrey's McGee.
