The co-founders of the group, vocalist Donnie Van Zant and guitarist/vocalist Don Barnes, say it’s all about maintaining the intensity of their recordings in their live shows. Barnes says, “We never wanted to be one of those bands that had maybe gotten a little soft or complacent over the years. We’re a team, and it’s always been kind of an unspoken rule that we don’t slack up, we stack up. We go out there every night to win.”

Completing the team are guitarist/vocalist Danny Chauncey, bassist Larry "L.J.” Junstrom, drummer Gary
Moffatt and keyboardist/vocalist Bobby Capps.

Donnie Van Zant adds, “This music keeps our wheels on the road. We’re a band that’s tried to stay honest with what has driven us over the years. We started out with nothing but bold determination to make our own history and to endure. Looking back now, it has been our greatest pride to have persevered and attained that level of success and longevity. For us, it’s the ultimate validation.”

Van Zant is a unique driving force for the band, with an unending spirit that propels the rest to consistently take it up a notch. His name is synonymous with Southern Rock royalty. He is the brother of Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Ronnie Van Zant, the late iconic singer and founder of Lynyrd Skynyrd. “The magic’s still there,” adds Van Zant. “It’s an emotional high for us to keep ‘bringing it’ after all these years. That’s what you hear on the new live stuff, that sense of urgency and power. When those lights go down and we all walk up those steps to the stage and hear that crowd roar, it’s a real rush to the head. It feels like we're getting ready to strap ourselves in and it just takes off from there.”
