Hey Friends – I'd like to give a huge THANK YOU to everyone who attended our first installment of 'Classic Rock by The River' @ Buffalo Riverworks on April 13th. We had over 1000 people in attendance and it was truly a special event (please see pic below). 

We were hoping for good things, but definitely did not expect such an incredible evening. Extra thanks go out to Chuck Sciandra from American Doors & Mo Porter and Carolyn Daniels from Gypsy Queen for all of their help with the planning. Version 2.0 is already on the books for April 26th, 2025. Click HERE to see some great video from the show. 

In the meantime, our full schedule through the end of August for all of our projects is listed here on the TOUR DATES page. Thank you again for your support!

Hey Friends – got an important music update happening –

After 3 years, I’ve decided to leave The Yachtfathers. I’d like to thank everyone who has supported the band and come out to the shows over the last 3 years. It is greatly appreciated and I look forward to seeing many of you again down the road (or river, lake, sea, etc.).

With that said, I’m happy to announce a BRAND NEW project in the yacht rock realm. It’s called Too Yacht to Handle and we will be specializing in ‘70’s Gold and Smooth Yacht Rock’. Our debut show is on Saturday, May 25th @ The Cave in Buffalo

If you are so inclined to like the band's Facebook page, you can check it out HERE. And you can also check out our brand new site at 


We’re really pumped about this new project and we can’t wait to set sail with you. Our full schedule for all of our projects is listed here on the TOUR DATES page. Thank you again for your support!
