Covering hits by artists such as Christopher Cross, Ace, Player, Carly Simon, Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald, Orleans, Pablo Cruise, Toto, Supertramp, Gerry Rafferty, Climax Blues Band, Grover Washington Jr., Linda Ronstadt, Nicolette Larson, Steely Dan, Stevie Nicks, Carole King, Captain and Tenille, George Michael, Ambrosia, The Little River Band and so many more, The Lonesome Losers provide a night of songs that are untouched by other bands. With big vocal harmonies and wonderful duets from the likes of Barbra Streisand/Barry Gibb, Kenny Loggins/ Stevie Nicks, Kenny Rogers/Dolly Parton, Patti Austin/James Ingram, Samantha Sang/Bee Gees, and Gino Vannelli, The Losers provide songs from both the kings and queens of Yacht Rock.
     
    With full yacht gear, a touch of comedy, and full night accompanied by HD video, lots of props and captains hats give aways The Lonesome Losers are sure to be a first for your guests and leave a lasting impression.
     
    The Lonesome Losers cast and crew consists of some of the Twin Cities most talented, entertaining, hard working and professional musicians. With decades of collective experience and an endless index of influences, the Losers have the ability to bring spot-on renditions of some of the greatest songs of all time.
     
    After years of musical confusion and wondering what these melodies were that were swimming around in my head. It found me, there it was right in front of me on TV, the Time-Life soft-rock music compilations. Those songs, those melodies, those sweet musical arrangements and of course Michael McDonalds backup vocals on everyone’s music. Song after song came across the television screen reminding me of long car rides sitting on mom’s lap in the front seat with no need for seatbelts. We had one of those sweet 1979 Ford LTD {Family Truckster} type station wagons with the seat that faced backward way in the back. That same seat was kindly provided with no seat belts, but thank goodness it had ashtrays. Mom had every Little River Band album on 8Track. She would rewind and fast forward to her favorite songs all day long. In one day she could rewind and fast forward to almost 16 songs, oh man if these millennials only knew what they were missing out on. Shortly after ordering my first Time-Life collection I found out that my love of these soft rock hits was not seen as “manly” or “tough” in an ever-growing world of hard rock, 80’s glam, hip-hop, and autotune. I quickly found myself very lonesome while everyone laughed and called me a sissy and a loser. So I hid my love of Yacht Rock, singing only to myself, always making sure to name my Yacht Rock playlist “Hard Core Metal” so no one would catch on. Like any good addiction, I even hid it from my family and closest friends. A lonesome Loser I surely was searching for others. Well, those days are over, I (we) am (are) not alone. Slowly but surely we are uniting, planning and organizing. Together, we are building a safe environment where those of us looking for more in our music and find ourselves looking back can gather in peace and rejoice that which is Yacht Rock. The Lonesome Losers, an experience like no other, a bright light of musical delight in a world of “your music sucks”.
