No shade from me for bands who are down with Yacht Rock. Like ’80s glam metal, it’s a genre that is often made fun of even though many would consider the the mid-70s to mid-80s polished soft rock a guilty pleasure.

I don’t know any of the background of Yachtopia but I DO know this is what Columbus needs and will receive on Thursday night when the party rolls into Ace of Cups. Doors are at 7pm and it’ll cost you a mere $10 to get your groove on and heat up the post-Christmas Winter night.

From their Facebook bio, here’s what Yachtopia is all about:

Yachtopia brings its unique soft rock sound to a stage near you. For weddings, corporate events, or just a great party we play non-stop yacht rock and soft rock hits from the 70’s and 80’s. Artist’s like Kenny Loggins, Hall and Oates, Michael McDonald, Toto, Steely Dan, and many more. Yachtopia plays only the best songs that are sure to get the entire audience dancing and singing along.
