Imagine that its 1981 and you’re cruising the Atlantic shores of the Hamptons with your friends. Bikinis are fluorescent, polo collars are popped, and boat shoes are rocked sockless. In the background, your booming sound system is playing the soft-rock sounds of Michael McDonald, Olivia Newton-John, Hall & Oates, Christopher Cross and Air Supply.
The Docksiders are made up of veteran musicians originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and now based in Las Vegas, Nevada – led by 3-time Grammy™ nominee, Kevin Sucher. Their unique tribute act of your favorite soft rock songs of the 70s and 80s – now defined as Yacht Rock – have been entertaining hundreds of thousands of people for years – and audiences are only getting bigger!
There will be a Cruiseship photobooth, Cabana-style drinks, and festive decor, and more!
The Docksiders – hit song after hit song, costume changes, and visual production, is only topped by their world-class performance.
The Docksiders – America’s Favorite Yacht Rock Band!™
