Lynyrd Skynyrd is a rock band best known for bringing southern hard rock to the music scene. The songs “Sweet Home Alamba” and “Freebird” made the band famous in the 70’s and helped this band top the charts for months at number one.

Current members Johnny Van Zant, Johnny Colt, Peter Keys, Rickey Medlocke, Gary Rossington, Michael Cartellone and Mark Matejka brought the southern rock to life Saturday night in full glory. Johnny Van Zant and team rocked the night away. With other hits “What’s Your Name”, “Simple Man” “Saturday Night Special”. “Still Unbroken” and of course many more, the audience was treated to fantastic night or rock.

Saturday night Lynyrd Skynyrd performed many of their famous hits to a sold out audience and this was the best way to end the season. Lynryd Skynyrd will be on the minds of many as one of the best shows to ever hit the stage at the Hudson Gardens and Event Center. Young and old filled the audience and the sold out crowd did not want to leave as they hoped for that one glimpse of a photo opportunity with Johnny, Peter, Rickey, Gary Michael, Johnny Colt or Mark. The memories will be many, and the summer ended on a high note.
