Skynyrd’s Innyrds

America’s Tribute to the Lynyrd Skynyrd Band. SKYNYRD’S INNYRDS have established themselves as the authentic tribute act to the original Lynyrd Skynyrd Band throughout Southern California, winning over audiences at every show. Playing classic Skynyrd songs has helped the band to develop a portal to the original band before the tragic October 20th, 1977 plane crash that took the lives of Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines, Cassie Gaines and Dean Kilpatrick.When the members of SKYNYRD’S INNYRDS take the stage, it is a complete tribute to America’s greatest and hardest working band to this day. The tribute band meet people at each show with a Skynyrd story to tell and these people love Lynyrd Skynyrd so much that each person always says “Skynyrd is my band!”. So many people relate to the music of Skynyrd that we just had to put this project together. First of all, because we are all huge fans just like anyone and second because the music is very exciting to play. We of course love the reaction when we hit the note and look forward to spreading the gospel of Lynyrd Skynyrd to a venue near you.

Special Guest Artimus Pyle

Long considered the “wild man” of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Artimus Pyle’s powerful and distinctive double bass drumming helped define the legendary Skynyrd sound.

Artimus got his first real break at the Charlie Daniels band’s Volunteer Jam. His first recording lists — Artimus Pyle, percussion. Then with other work for the Marshall Tucker Band, Artimus became known as a powerful session drummer.

Using his connections with Charlie Daniels and Marshall Tucker, both acts that toured often with Skynyrd, Artimus met with Ronnie VanZant and Ed King at Studio One in Doraville, Georgia. The results of that meeting — Saturday Night Special — greatly impressed Ronnie. Artimus’ live debut with the band took place in Jacksonville’s Sgt Pepper’s Club in October 1974. The gig, a show to raise money and awareness for Jacksonville’s food bank, was hot Everyone remembers the band walking through the front door and into a crush of people that doubled the legal occupancy of the club. Playing under the hot lights in an over-packed club with an underpowered air conditioner made for a memorable night When Bob Burns left the band permanently following Skynyrd’s first European tour in December 197 4, Artimus quickly got the nod as Skynyrd’s new drummer.

The years Artimus played with Skynyrd were the years that solidified the legend behind the band. Quickly developing into one of the nation’s top touring draws with a grueling schedule of 300 shows a year, the constant work and touring paid off. By October 20, 1977, Skynyrds songs had become radio staples.
