What’s Yacht Rock you say?

Yacht Rock is a variation of  Top40 soft rock that peaked between the years of 1976 and 1984. Significant “Yacht Rockers” include Michael McDonaldKenny Loggins, Christopher Cross, and Toto.  The Yacht Rock series, and all it’s priceless  episodes, written, directed, and produced by JD Ryznar, Hunter Stair, and Lane Farnham, can be found here.

mmcdonalddMichael McDonald acknowledged Yacht Rock in 2008:

  Have you ever owned a yacht?    

No, but I thought Yacht Rock was hilarious. And uncannily, you know, those things always have a little bit of truth to them. It’s kind of like when you get a letter from a stalker who’s never met you. They somehow hit on something, and you have to admit they’re pretty intuitive.

Okay. So what’s the craziest thing you ever did with Kenny Loggins?

We mostly worked a lot when we would get together. Kenny, he’s one of those guys who was a more serious artist; I was just a schlub. He was like, “C’mon, let’s get this right,” and I was like, “Got any beer?”
