Nuthin Fancy was born out of the California band DP31 from Ventura California. After playing original tunes up and down the Sunset Strip & various Venues in Southern California, I decided to turn it into a SKYNYRD TRIBUTE. “I moved out to California to play original music in 2003. But, I ended up playing music I grew up with SKYNYRD!” “I love Ronnie VanZant’s down to earth lyrics and Rossington-Collins Double Leads. SKYNYRD Is Great American Music! The Best! So, I rediscovered something new in the music I loved when I was a teenager. Doing SKYNYRD is a real time machine back into the 1970’s. And I love doing this show! After meeting Ronnie VanZant in June of 1974, he’s been like a big brother through his music. So really, this is a tribute to The Man (my big brother), Ronnie VanZant.”
