Lazy Daze: The Soul of Yacht Rock

June 9, 4pm9pm.

Presented in partnership with Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy, join for a panel discussion and DJ set dedicated to the legacy of yacht rock. Moderated by Scott Barkham (artist manager, yacht rock aficionado) the panel includes Gary Katz (producer, Steely Dan) and Rich Medina (world renowned DJ).


How did this unique blend of soul and rock manage to appeal to the masses without crying out cultural appropriation? Was this a reaction to the revolution of the 60’s and massive exhaustion post-Watergate? Or an escape (if you like pina coladas…)?

This event kicks off the Conservancy’s new Lazy Daze series– chill Sunday afternoons at Pier 6 Liberty Lawn in Brooklyn Bridge Park. These afternoons are an opportunity to relax, lay out, and enjoy while a rotation of DJ’s do their thing in the background. Food and drink will be available for sale by Fornino.
