Los Angeles, CA — Yächtley Crëw, are the seven-piece So Cal band who burst onto the club scene in 2017, selling out countless local venues before starting a nationwide Yacht Rock craze and being noticed by the legendary Jimmy Buffett who signed them to his own Mailboat Records label.


The nautical-suited and captain’s-hat-clad Yächtley Crëw (otherwise known as “The Titans Of Soft Rock) is comprised of lead vocalist Phillip Daniel (Philly Ocean), drummer Rob Jones (Sailor Hawkins), bassist Chaz Ruiz (Baba Buoy), guitarist Thomas Gardner Jr. (Tommy Buoy), backing vocalist Curt Clendenin (Stoney Shores), saxophone/flutist Paul Pate (Pauly Shores) and keyboardist Matt Grossman (Matthew McDonald).


Growing exponentially over the past years, Yächtley Crëw have toured in cities throughout the U.S. and Europe and are currently gearing up for their 2024 Full Steam Ahead tour that begins in March. The group will continue their third year of residency at The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas and recently released their first EP Seas The Day on Mailboat Records.


Seas the Day was produced and mixed by Grammy award winning Chris Lord-Alge (Stevie Nicks, Steven Tyler, Keith Urban, Bruce Springsteen, Green Day) and features the band’s first original song “Sex on the Beach,” accompanied by a video with a guest appearance by the Access Hollywood & iHeart host, Mario Lopez. The video was directed by Myles Erfurth (Dead Sara, Ice Nine Kills, Twiztid). Yächtley Crëw is managed by longtime industry icon Andy Gould (Rob Zombie, Pantera, Lionel Richie, Guns N ’Roses) and represented by Jim Lenz at TKO.


Yächtley Crëw have appeared on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, have helped ring in the New Year on KLAS and KTLA’s “Las Vegas Countdown to 2023” (the exclusive, Emmy-winning special syndicated program that reached reaches more than 16.5 million U.S. TV households), performed on countless morning television and radio shows throughout the country, have been featured on Fox News nationally and performed on SiriusXM’s Yacht Rock Radio “Yacht Rock 311” show as the first ever Yacht Rock band to perform live at the station. They have also performed at a cadre of charity and special events throughout the years including Mario Lopez Golf Classic Tournament in support of the Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center.


For those uninitiated, Yacht Rock encapsulates the revival of soft rock and Top 40 hits from the late ‘70s to the early ‘80s, which has become a nationwide phenomenon, inspiring fans to dress the part and sing along. Other songs on Seas the Day include fan favorites such as Boz Scaggs“ ’Lido Shuffle,” Ace’s “How Long,” Robbie Dupree’s “Steal Away,” the Bee Gees“ ’How Deep Is Your Love” and all-time Yacht Rock pioneer Christopher Cross“ ’Ride Like the Wind.” Other songs in the band’s set include Toto’s “Africa,” Looking Glass“ ’Brandy” and Rupert Holmes“ ’Escape (The Piña Colada Song).”
