If you’re long overdue for a rockin’ date night or Girls’ Night Out, we’ve got the ticket. We’ve got two, in fact!
ABOUT THE BAND: Mention the term “southern rock” and one band instantly leaps to mind: Lynyrd Skynyrd. They defined the genre in its Seventies heyday and beyond, and are still active entities. Originally formed in 1964 as the “Noble Five” in Jacksonville, Florida, the band’s three-guitar lineup gave them an uncommon musical muscle, while their down-to-earth songs spoke plainly and honestly from a working-class Southerner’s perspective. Theirs is one of the most dramatic tales in rock history.
The saga of Lynyrd Skynyrd has unfolded in an almost mythical series of ups and downs, from being in the vanguard of a musical movement to the tragic 1977 plane crash that claimed the lives of three band members. From the ashes, the survivors re-formed a decade later, and what started as a tribute turned into a full-fledged renaissance.
ABOUT THE FOOD: We’re pairing the two show tickets with a gift card to our favorite pizza place on Dickson Street — U.S. Pizza. It’s a crowd-pleaser with every member of the family, and past Motherlode giveaway winners always have rave reviews after having a meal there. There’s just something special about their pizzas and we adore their salads, too.
