Skynyrd Rising is a must see live band. If you want to go back in time, when Southern rock was king, then you will want see this show!

Skynyrd Rising is the quintessential Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute band. Based out of Southern California, this group of consummate musicians and soulful rockers embody the talent and energy of the original band, who sadly lost members much too soon. Simple Man evokes Ronnie Van Zant’s profound and powerful vocals, while highlighting the dual lead guitar riffs that Lynyrd Skynyrd made famous. They celebrate the entire catalogue including the hits like “Simple Man,” “Sweet Home Alabama” and “Tuesday’s gone,” as well as deeper cuts such as “The Needle and the Spoon” and “Poison Whiskey.”

Authenticity to the music is at the core of every Skynyrd Risingperformance and each musician truly personifies an original member. Lead singer Ernie Berru (Ronnie Van Zant) channels the power and humanity that Ernie felt when he first saw Ronnie perform. Bass player Rodger Cunningham (Leon Wilkeson) and drummer Sean McLeod (Artimus Pyle) provide a strong rhythmic backbone that enhances the experience. Rick Dekker (Ed King & Allen Collins) and Michael MacMullin (Gary Rossington) expertly intertwine impressive guitar licks with vitality and wisdom. Michael also captures the trademark slide guitar that turned songs such as “Free Bird” into anthems. Dan Marsey (Billy Powell) does an exceptional job providing a Southern rock vibe on the keys.

If you are looking for a genuine Lynyrd Skynyrd rock n’ roll experience, look no further than Skynyrd Rising. They will take you through a time capsule of songs from the 1970’s that no other band can replicate. The music of Lynyrd Skynyrd is enjoyed by children from 7 all the way to adults in their 70s.
