Jacksonville's own Lynyrd Skynyrd was the definitive southern rock band. Their classic hits like "Free Bird", "Sweet Home Alabama" & "Gimme Three Steps" have become Amercian athems and have embeded Lynyrd Skynyrd into American culture. They continue the legacy that started over 35 years ago and will be playing their classic hits as well as new material. Their new CD "God & Guns" was released September 29th.

their management or record company, families or associates
No band members will be in attendance


Every year since 1997, a weekend in October has been set aside as a Skynyrd Fan Fest to honor the Lynyrd Skynyrd Band and their music. This year the Tribute is being held in November because Lynyrd Skynyrd is performing at the St.Augustine Amphitheater in October on the date we had scheduled.

The Skynyrd Tribute is a time of special remembrance of original band members who gave the world their extraordinary talents and creativity which is responsible for the unique Lynyrd Skynyrd sound:
  • Ronnie Van Zant * 1948-1977
  • Allen Collins * 1952-1990
  • Gary Rossington
  • Leon Wilkeson * 1952-2001
  • Billy Powell * 1952-2009
  • Steve Gaines * 1949-1977
  • Ed King
  • Artimus Pyle

  • ~ Honkettes ~
  • Cassie Gaines * 1948-1977
  • JoJo Billingsley
  • Leslie Hawkins

  • (* "Freebirds")
This annual event was originally created by Judy & Melody Van Zant of the The Freebird Foundation until October 2000, the Freebird Foundation closed in 2001. Artimus Pyle organized The Celebration Of Life Tribute, a similar event in October 2001.

Since 2002, local Jacksonville rock band KYMYSTRY independently organizes, sponsors and continues the annual "free" fan based event with the help of lots of "Frynds". Bands and Solo Artists donate their time and talents to round out a full weekend of live music!
