Yachtley Crew is a Los Angeles area-based band of talented and tenured musicians with a common set of goals: to entertain music lovers with some of the greatest songs ever written back in the late 70’s and early 80’s, and to have as much fun as possible while performing those hits.

Zephyr: A Whirlwind of Circus
Humans have been harnessing the power of wind for thousands of years and the beauty and efficacy of that ingenious process inspired the creative team at Cirque Mechanics to create Zephyr!, a theatrical circus show that harnesses human power, to generate an energetic acrobatic experience. A performance windmill will serve as the multifunctional mechanical centerpiece of their story. Mounted on a turntable, the windmill combines both the ancient picturesque elements (think Don Quixote!) with the transformation to a modern wind turbine providing a change of scenery in real time.
