Biography

"Turn it up!"

And with those words musical history was set in motion! FreeBird is the best Lynryd Skynyrd tribute - period. As a band FreeBird's members have been in love with the music since childhood, and they play these songs with the same passion and intensity of Lynryd Skynryd themselves. If you saw the original line up in the 1970s you will appreciate the accuracy, if you're just discovering the music for the first time, you'll be blown away by hit after hit of incredible music and amazing players. Vocalist Chris Howard masterfully catches the essence of Ronnie Van Zant’s vocals and stage persona, guiding the band and players through solos, song after song. Guitarists Matt Chenoweth (Ed King/Steve Gains), Tim McGovern (Allen Collins) and Bailey Townshend (Gary Rossington) play their roles with such explosive energy and skill you'd think you were at a show in the 1970s. Russell Ingram on drums and Eric “Frizzy” Caldwell on bass nail down the groove and power of Artimus Pyle and Leon Wilkes’ rhythm section, while keyboardist Asher McKinney gracefully adds in Billy Powell's keyboards for a full and amazing rendition of one of the greatest bands that ever recorded and toured. FreeBird brings all the magic of the music to life in a way seldom heard by any tribute act. Get ready for a full helping of Southern Fried Rock N Roll by the best Skynyrd tribute band around - Fly High FreeBird Nation!

    FreeBird is pleased to welcome and announce Eric “Frizzy” Caldwell has joined the band on bass, replacing Rich De Santis who is moving on to other projects and leaving FreeBird. We all wish Rich the best of luck on his next musical venture.

    Frizzy Caldwell is a top tier bass player and brings a new energy and enthusiasm to the band. His prior work includes playing bass with David Allen Coe for 3 years, as well as other numerous country and rock acts throughout the southeast. The band is reaching new levels of musical inspiration and we all enjoy the new direction and style Frizzy brings to the group. “Frizzy brings a solid bass to the band that really makes the music pop,” says guitarist Matt Chenoweth. “There’s a great vibe in the rehearsal room, and the band has never sounded tighter. Everything feels right about this, and we are definitely taking this to the next level.” says Chris Howard - lead vocalist for FreeBird.

    FreeBird is busy booking spring, summer, fall and winter dates and looks forward to a very busy gig schedule with the addition of Frizzy Caldwell.
