Boat House Row + Big Al’s Truck
Boat House Row hails from Philly and offers the premier yacht rock experience. In the musical sense, yacht rock refers to the highly polished brand of soft rock that emanated from Southern California between 1976-1984. The term is meant to suggest the kind of smooth, mellow music that early yuppies likely enjoyed while sipping champagne on their yachts. Significant “yacht rockers” include Hall & Oates, Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins, Christopher Cross, Steely Dan, Toto and many more.
Local favorite Big Al’s Truck performs high-energy, rock, pop, and country favorites from the ‘80s to today; just the way you remember. Lead vocalist Ashley Schwab is a dynamic presence on the stage, with vocals reminiscent of the original artist. Comments about Big Al’s Truck highlight the incredible vocal performance, sensational guitar tone, and tight rhythm delivered by seasoned players that are familiar in the NOVA music scene.
