They’re still having fun: yacht rock heroes Orleans (Episode 973)

Yacht rock comes to the Car Con Carne podcast!

See Orleans, Peter Beckett (Player) and Walter Egan: Des Plaines Theatre on July 27!


Orleans’ first album came out 51 years ago … and the band still exists in the present day. Orleans is joining forces with Peter Beckett (Player) and Walter Egan for a night of yacht rock awesomeness at the Des Plaines Theatre on July 27. Specific to Orleans, the band’s hits are indelible including “Still the One,” “Dance With Me” and “Let There Be Music.”

Founding member/bassist and singer Lance Hoppen talks about the band’s history, the music business then-and-now, the hits, the “yacht rock” label and *that* album cover.
