Subj: We have a magical evening of Yacht Rock coming your way.
Hi there – This is Annie from the band DATE NITE. I will be performing, with my fellow sailors, at a fantastic event this Thursday evening at the Blue Macaw. There will be Michael McDonald covers, shoulder pads, a tribute to Gerry Rafferty, a vintage bathing suit competition, and of course plenty of champagne. Below is a description of the event and a couple of winter yachting tips.
Hoping we see you there!
Thanks… I’ve included an inspiring photo for reference.
After the jump is the full press release, including info about the performers and vintage swimwear contest, plus a fun list of wardrobe suggestions.
Ships Ahoy Daaaaaaaaaahling…
We are preparing to again storm the decks of The Blue Macaw for our second instillation in the winter yacht rock series. Can’t wait to see you all out in your finest Yacht Rock attire (see below for tips!). Ladies we want to see your inner early 80′s glam diva dripping with pearls on the arm of your dashing Italian captain. Gentleman we want to see your inner late 70′s gentleman in regatta regalia with some traveling vixen in a vintage bikini and swimming robe lightly placing her hand above your tightly framed butt. Let’s get on some serious Italo-Disco up in here people!!
