Premier Live Atlanta Challenge Host Jason Bailey

ATLANTA CHALLENGE HOST: JASON BAILEY

Jason Bailey has been entertaining millions, thousands or at least those that’ll listen since 1995…that’s what he thinks. He started his career in 1995 as a radio intern and powered his way up the ranks covering numerous formats like Top 40, Rock and Sports Talk currently hosting the Bailey and Southside morning show on Atlanta’s Rock 100.5. In addition to having worked with the WWE, ESPN, CBS Sports and the NFL Network, Jason is an avid tennis player and has hosted the New York Open and currently hosts the Truist Atlanta Open tournament. His love of radio, TV as well as emceeing live events has not only put food on the table but also allowed him to voice his opinions to the masses. “That being a good thing is still up for debate”, says Bailey!

YACHT ROCK REVUE

Performing Live at 6:45 pm!

The Yacht Rock Revue is everything the late ‘70s and early ‘80s should’ve been: massive sing-along soft rock hits, tight bell-bottom jeans, impeccable musicianship, polyester shirts, glorious vocal harmonies, sunglasses at night, breezy dancing and sax … lots of sax. “They’re a trip down memory lane that skips all the bad neighborhoods,” according to Robbie Dupree. It’s pure Escape (The Piña Colada Song.) 

The Yacht Rock Revue has defined and popularized a genre that was a fringe guilty pleasure when the group played its first show as a basement bar band in 2007. Fast forward to 2018 and it’s just like quinoa – a few years ago nobody knew about it but now all the girls love it. Yacht Rock has a dedicated SiriusXM channel and YRR sold out Atlanta’s 6,500-seat Chastain Park Amphitheatre. A national tour partnership with Live Nation and the SiriusXM Yacht Rock Channel has the Yacht Rock Revue primed to reach a record number of soccer moms in 2019. 

YRR has won accolades ranging from “Best Place to Get Drunk With Your Dad” to “Best Overall Music Act in Atlanta” to “Best Place to Start an Extramarital Affair,” and has been name-dropped by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Pitchfork, the Guardian UK, Spin, TimeOut New York, Billboard, MTV.com, and (probably) your mom at her last cocktail party. 

“I thought they were kind of goofing on that music and that era. But as it turns out, they’re actually really passionate about it and they do it very seriously. And they turned out to be great guys.” – John Oates
