About Us...

Nashville Yacht Club Band, aka NYC, is an 8-piece tribute to the pop and r&b sounds of the 1970s & 80s. Dazzling, note-perfect renditions of your favorite smooth party hits. Audiences can expect a unique collection of vintage AM Gold, roller disco classics & timeless dance floor staples performed by some of Music City’s most captivating players and singers!

With a hard-earned reputation as one of the premiere Yacht Rock tribute acts in the US, this vintage dance party troupe travels from sea to shining sea casting a smooth spell on corporate galas, luxury resorts and private backyards. Be it a grand casino, nightclub, festival, performing arts center, country club or tropical destination wedding, the band's enthusiastic and expert delivery of these golden hits light up the party. Every time.

Composed almost entirely of former New York City touring musicians now based in Nashville, the group boasts an impressive resume by any standards. The band's players have traveled all over the world performing with artists and institutions including The Waterboys, Augustana, Blue Man Group, Carly Simon, Adrian Belew, Jennifer Nettles, Terrence Trent D'Arby, Colin Hay, Dustin Lynch, Ben Kweller, Passenger, Jo Dee Messina, Christopher Cross, Brandy Clark and many, many more. N.Y.C. was featured alongside Pablo Cruise at IEBA 2019 and continues to anchor monthly residencies in some of Nashville's finest venues, and beyond.

"We're all (mostly) in our 30s and 40s now, so this is very much a musical love letter to the joyful music playing in the car when we were growing up," says guitarist and bandleader Jay Barclay. "We've carefully curated a perfect mixtape to keep everyone smiling and lost on the dance floor for hours. People feel happy at our shows, and that's just so great. It's evocative and nostalgic, for sure, but the songs hold up! We started this band for fun, now it's the best job in the world."
