While ticket sales for this weekend’s Rod Stewart tribute are winding down over at the Historic Hemet Theatre, tickets for the upcoming “Tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd” are moving fast.
On Saturday, Feb. 10, Southbound and Company will make their first visit to HHT with their wildly popular show, “Lynyrd Skynyrd and Frynds.” Fans will enjoy all of their favorite ‘70s hits, including “Sweet Home Alabama,” “Free Bird,” “What’s Your Name,” and “That Smell.”
In the 1970s, Lynyrd Skynyrd gained worldwide recognition for their live performances and unique southern rock style. But in 1977, at the peak of their success, band members Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines died in an airplane crash. Lynyrd Skynyrd has sold 28 million records and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006.
Based in SoCal, Southbound and Company performs classic rock music all over the country. Members of the band include lead vocalist Darryl Reed, lead guitarists Michael Finn and Steve Gauronski, drummer Mike Hunter, Kevin Haerr-Bass guitarist, and backup vocalist Shaun N Bernadou.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to enjoy the classic sound of Lynyrd Skynyrd live in concert!
