As the Hawks go up against Philadelphia in a game presented by adidas on Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2024, Atlanta’s sensational band Yacht Rock Revue will perform at halftime presented by Jack Daniels.
Featuring exceptional musicianship and tight harmonies, Yacht Rock Revue pays homage to the golden era of yacht rock, delivering pitch-perfect renditions of iconic classics. Yacht Rock Revue takes audiences back in time with their lush instrumentation, soulful voices, and tight jeans. Their infectious enthusiasm and engaging stage presence create a feel-good atmosphere that encourages everyone to sing along and dance the night away.
“We’re gonna throw down retro smooth jams like Human Highlight Film dunks,” says Nick Niespodziani of Yacht Rock Revue. “Let’s Go Hawks!”
As part of the team’s annual Faith & Family Night, the Hawks have tapped GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter and one of the most iconic artists in gospel music history Tasha Cobbs Leonard to perform at halftime.
Winner of the Billboard Music Award for Top Gospel Artist for the past two years, Tasha Cobbs Leonard’s latest radio single, “You Know My Name (Live),” recently climbed to no. 1, while her career-launching hit, ‘Break Every Chain,’ was recently certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). In 2020, she launched TeeLee Records, a worship collective focused on cultivating and advancing the next generation of worship artists.
“As a proud Georgia native, I can’t wait to cheer on the home team and share in this unique blending of culture and community during Faith & Family Night,” said Tasha Cobbs Leonard. “I love how this night not only promotes gospel entertainment but pulls together my love of basketball and passion for Faith & Family. Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity happen. I’m getting ready for a great night in the ATL!”
Lastly, as part of the team’s sixth annual Pride Night, rap artist and actress Da Brat will perform at halftime of the team’s home game against Orlando. Slated to take place on Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2024, the night will celebrate members and allies of the LGBTQIA+ community throughout the game.
Shawntae Harris, born in Chicago and better known by her stage name “Da Brat”, is an American rap artist, profound writer, television and radio personality, executive music and television producer and actress. Da Brat’s debut album ‘Funkdafied’ was released in 1994 and ranked atop the rap albums chart.
