5. Yacht Rock Revue will not only be bringing its popular 70’s cover show to The Strand but will also be sticking around an extra night to take the stage with a different twist on the traditional tribute show.
On Saturday, the band will be performing not one, but two legendary albums in their entirety: The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon. The Dark Side of the Moon will be performed in sync with the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz.
Fans of The Yacht Rock Revue’s more well-known cover show can catch it on the night before The Beatles/Pink Floyd show. On Friday, the band will pay tribute to smooth hits of the late ‘70s including Michael Mcdonald, Hall & Oates and Steely Dan.
The Saturday night Beatles/Pink Floyd performance is all ages, and the Yacht Rock Revue show is ages 18 and older. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 the day of the event.
