Skynerd and the “Mock The” World Tour


Every year the I.T. community in Winnipeg gets together for a battle of the bands event and we raise money for CancerCare Manitoba Foundation. This year our band was a Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute act. So, part of the promotion of the event we decided to do a facebook only tour where we took the band photo from the meeting of the bands and superimposed those pictures over different locations. As the musical director of the event I record the bands and give them feedback, including our band. We recorded the J.J. Cale song, Call Me the Breeze. I took the practice recording and I got some crowd noise from Pond5 and mixed that in and, wallah, Skynerd Live at Budokan.
