A Nashville, Tennessee-based band is closing out the 2021 Seymour CityJam summer concert series.

But it won’t be playing country music.

Nashville Yacht Club Band is an eight-piece tribute to 1970s and ‘80s pop and rhythm and blues.

The show will start at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the JCB Pavilion at Crossroads Community Park, 101 E. Tipton St., Seymour.

Admission is free. The Pines will have food and beverages available for purchase and Kovener’s Korner will have its ice cream truck there starting at 6 p.m.

This will wrap up the eighth season of the summer concert series. Seymour Main Street was able to secure all five of the acts that were scheduled to perform in 2020 but were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the group’s website, Nashville Yacht Club Band presents “dazzling, note-perfect renditions of your favorite smooth party hits.”

“A unique collection of vintage AM Gold, roller disco classics and dance floor staples performed by some of Music City’s most captivating players and singers,” the website states.

The group covers songs from The Doobie Brothers, Christopher Cross, Kenny Loggins, Toto, Laura Branigan, Captain and Tennille and more all in one place.

“Among the playlist of songs, mostly limited to that 1975 to 1985 era of soft rock lore and hard-hitting dance floor staples, you will hear these smooth, timeless classics come to life as never before, rendered completely (mostly) without irony or jest in glorious tribute,” the website states.

The band’s members have more than a century of collective experience playing live music all over the world. On lead vocals are real-life couple Adam Smith and Courtney Elliot, “ready to deliver those extraordinary songs you know and love as well as so many timeless male/female duets of the era,” according to the website.

The other members are Matt Wigton on bass, Ramsey Roustom on drums, Jay Barclay on guitar, Ryan Link on percussion, guitar, vocals, saxophone and more and John Pahmer and David Lukens on keys.
