The Love Boat, a new yacht rock tribute band, will perform its first DC show at Pearl Street Warehouse on Saturday, Jan. 12! This Baltimore-based cover band invites you to come aboard — for something smooth!

This experienced crew of musicians is drawn from other tribute bands. The Love Boat features members of Psycho Killers, Electric Love Machine, Yellow Dubmarine, and more!

Yacht rock, of course, is the genre coined by the infamous YouTube series of the same, focusing on soft rock of the ‘70s. Ryan Porter of The Love Boat told Parklife DC that we can expect covers of Steely Dan, Toto, Christopher Cross, Hall & Oates, and more.

“The light-rocking tunes emerged from a time of sharp studio work and professional musicianship, and the inoffensive sounds can mask subtle complexity,” observed The Wall Street Journal in examining the yacht rock phenomenon.
