A Tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd with Simple Man

Date: Thursday, September 6 2018

Simple Man 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 Lyvyn Skynyrd performance and each musician truly personifies an original member. Lead singer Andrew Mazzarelli channels the power and humanity that Andrew felt when he first saw Ronnie Van Zant perform. Backing vocalists Shaun Bernadou and Debora Angelo bring additional depth and charisma to the stage, while bass player Greg Lemke and drummer Blair Banning provide a strong rhythmic backbone that enhances the experience. Rick Dekker and Celso Salim expertly intertwine impressive guitar licks with vitality and wisdom. Celso also captures the trademark slide guitar that turned songs such as “Free Bird” into anthems. Studio musician Dan Jorissen does an exceptional job providing a Southern rock vibe on the keys.
