Smooth hits of 70's and 80's


yacht rock’s ultimate party band.

We are Southern California’s first yacht rock band to play coast to coast and all points in between.


Come Sail Away with Southern California’s SMOOTHEST Yacht Rock band. A crew of six talented musicians taking you on a sunset cruise to the guilty pleasures of 70’s and 80’s smooth soft rock. Don’t miss the boat, Captain Carl steers us toward Pleasure Town and Scotty McYachty crushes the vocals on the playlist of your life. Ultimately, pop the champagne, your smooth grooves await. Set a course for adventure as Yachty by Nature treats you to the smooth and groovy California sound that conjures up palm trees swaying, cruising the boulevard, yacht parties, and love lost and found. The captain’s hats, nautical attire and Ron Burgundy vibe will get the party started. We play all your favorite hits from Hall & Oates, Michael McDonald, Steely Dan, Toto, Christopher Cross, Ambrosia, & Lionel Richie will have you dancing the night away. In addition, it’s the playlist of your life, so whether you’re on land or sea, we’ll bring the yacht party to you! Yachty by Nature is a 6 piece tribute to the 70’s and 80’s soft rock movement. Importantly, we bring together a CREW of expert musicians and kick-ass vocals to groove you to those favorite Yacht Rock hits. Rest assured, we don’t play to those backing tracks that some bands have to use to recreate those groovy vinyl cuts. In fact, WE PLAY 100% LIVE and respect those classics too much to fake it. For instance, we’re the only Yacht Rock band in the Southland playing it live & playing to audiences all over the country.


Furthermore, we’ve played in North Carolina, Vegas (Brooklyn Bowl & TopGolf), Whisky a Go Go in Hollywood, & much more! As you may know, our band comes from a long background of musical talent and success and will not only wow your audiences with our Rock-the-Boat jams. Lastly, our Yacht Party sails on the Ron Burgundy playlist with fun, funk, vibe, and swagger. Thus, get ready for a SMOOTH pleasure cruise with plenty of sax appeal. Above all, stay smooth. Come Sail Away with the captains of smooth
