MARIETTA, GA (September 28, 2022) — The Earl and Rachel Smith Strand Theatre will host SkynFolks: An Authentic Lynyrd Skynyrd Experience in concert on Saturday, October 15 at 8pm.
Brought together by luck, fate, devotion and drive, the members of SkynFolks pledged to create a band that would exactly reproduce the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd.
What emerged hasn’t been seen since the days of the original Skynyrd lineup: totally authentic, accurate renditions of the music on the first five Lynyrd Skynyrd albums performed live on stage.
It’s been a labor of love for SkynFolks to provide the kind of high-quality, authenstrandmariettatic experience that honors the legacy of Lynyrd Skynyrd. In the last two years, SkynFolks has played in venues of all sizes, including festivals, theaters, clubs, private parties, and concert halls. These performances helped the band build a rapidly-growing, enthusiastic fan base, many of whom have followed their performances to venues across the Southeast.
VIP Ticket Packages include early access to seating, drink tickets, a meet & greet with the band, a signed poster, and an exclusive pre-show set by the band.
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased online at strandmarietta.org, over the phone at 770.293.0080 or at The Strand box office.
