How Appropriate that the Down South Jukin' Tour blasts off in The Big Guava.
Lynette joins forces with rostermates, Tennessee Iron for the most bad ass Southern Rock assault on Cigar City since The Outlaws performed "Green Grass & High Tides" for a record-breaking 5 hour jam back in 1975.
Actually, that's not true, but one thing is for certain: LS & TI will be bringing the big rock for Tampa!
Besides hosting local and national artists on their outdoor stage, Skipper’s Smokehouse has a full liquor bar and restaurant featuring “Floribbean” cuisine.
Come on out and kick off the "Down South Jukin"' Tour and help us make some rock history happen!
Lynette Skynyrd is the world’s one and only all-female Lynyrd Skynyrd trybute. Based out of Southern California, the band was founded in 2010 by vocalist Laurie Es. Laurie had already built a reputation as the lead member of hard rock band Hallowed Engine, a former DJ on WFMU and a promoter in L.A.’s rock scene. A lifelong Skynyrd fan, Laurie set out to create a tribute that would truly do justice to the genre-defining Southern hard rock of the original band, and the exceptional songwriting and musicianship that earned Lynyrd Skynyrd its rightful place in the pantheon of classic arena rock bands. With a powerful mid-range voice that makes her the perfect female counterpart to Ronnie Van Zant and a talented group of female musicians with established credibility, Lynette Skynyrd would not be just another tribute band.
This group of mega-talented female musicians express the unconquered spirit of Southern Rock. Lynette captures the essence of Skynyrd, tapping into those days-gone-by, when rock was experienced with all the senses. If the past is indeed a prologue to their musical journey, then Lynette Skynyrd is nothing less than timeless. With a badass rock-chick authority, these daisy duke divas transport the Skynyrd classics into the modern era.
Lynette Skynyrd has generated considerable interest from its very inception, building up a solid social media fanbase and online presence even before venturing out of their Southern California homeland. In fact, Lynyrd Skynyrd themselves had Lynette play the grand opening of their new restaurant, Lynyrd Skynyrd BBQ & Beer at The Excalibur in Las Vegas. If the original kings of Southern rock are giving these babes their blessing, then Lynette Skynyrd must be on the right track. In particular, rockers from the South have welcomed the band and eagerly await a US tour. Combined with the individual members’ already-established following, and the niche of a female Skynyrd yet unfilled, the band can stride easily down the road laid out before them.
