Freebird! Skynyrd to Rock The Chip Sturgis 2016

A 35-year tradition of presenting the best in American classic rock will continue as the Sturgis Buffalo Chip is bringing back one of its most requested bands, Lynyrd Skynyrd, for a performance on Monday, Aug. 8. The band has become the standard bearer of classic American rock at the Largest Music Festival in Motorcycling, carrying the torch of freedom and independence through their music. Lynyrd Skynyrd has created a legacy much larger than their 30 million albums sold–breaking down generational barriers and becoming a standard in motorcycle culture. A short video exploring Buffalo Chip tradition and the effect Skynyrd’s music has had on the collective American experience can be found here:

After nearly five decades of creating unforgettable, chart-topping hits such as “Sweet Home Alabama,” “Gimme Three Steps” and “Freebird,” it’s no wonder Skynyrd is followed by a loyal legion of enthusiastic fans.
