“Come party in the Poconos with us!” exclaimed John M. Oakes, CEO/Founder of From The RootsTM POCONOS PARKTM. “We are working hard to curate the best of the motorcycle world for this show and booking great music! East Coast motorcyclists can kick off their riding season with us while enjoying a great ride through the extraordinary countryside of Pennsylvania and the scenic Poconos–it just doesn’t get any better than that,” he stated.
LOST HIGHWAY Motorcycle Show & Concert, which combines a passion for motorcycles with music and camping, was founded in 2015 by John M. Oakes, President and CEO of FROM THE ROOTSTM. Originally held in Southern California and named “Best Event” by Hot Bike Magazine, with the purchase of POCONOS PARK by Oakes’ company, this premier event has now been expanded to the East Coast.
In early 2022, Oakes’ From the Roots acquired 200+ acres of land including the nearly 40 million-dollar development formerly known as Mt. Laurel Performing Arts Center and the Tom Ridge Pavilion. Just a short ride or drive from New York City, Philadelphia, Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, Newark, Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton, From The Roots recognized the venue’s immediate potential, took action, renovated, upgraded, and reopened as POCONOS PARK™.
ABOUT LYNYRD SKYNYRD:
The legacy began some 41 years ago in Jacksonville, Florida, and halted for a decade by the 1977 plane crash that killed three band members, including Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines. Since then, the band tragically lost Allen Collins, Billy Powell, Leon Wilkeson and Hughie Thomasson, yet Lynyrd Skynyrd rocks on with original member Gary Rossington joined by Johnny Van Zant, Rickey Medlocke, Mark “Sparky” Matejka, Michael Cartellone, Johnny Colt, Peter Keys, Dale Krantz Rossington and Carol Chase.
The rock and roll powerhouse continually tours, this summer heading out on their second run with Bad Company. 2014 marks the 8th year for their annual Simple Man Cruise, a four day voyage filled with the best music in Southern Rock including an outdoor beach show featuring Lynyrd Skynyrd for the first time in the cruise’s history.
And so Skynyrd stands, “still unbroken.” “People may say, ‘they need the money,’ well I don’t think any of us need the money,” Van Zant says. “It’s just that we love the music, it’s bigger than the money, it’s not even about that any more. We have to make a living, sure, but it’s about the legacy of Lynyrd Skynyrd, and what it stands for, what the fans are all about. There’s nothing like getting out there playing a great show with Skynyrd and seeing people love this music.”
Adds Rossington, “We’re still standing, still keeping the music going. We wanted to do the guys who aren’t with us any more proud, and keep the name proud, too.”
With a catalog of over 60 albums, sales beyond 30 million worldwide and their beloved classic American rock anthem “Sweet Home Alabama” having over two million downloaded ringtones, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Lynyrd Skynyrd remains a cultural icon that appeals to all generations.
