The show you saw was Jimmy Van Zant-cousin to both Ronnie, Johnny and Donnie. The songs you mentioned are on the first self titled Jimmy Van Zant CD- released on a local Minneapolis label ("Bird" something- can't remember). A band I worked with opened for them last year, and they do put on a good show- if a bit heavy on Skynrd covers.

During a solo, Jimmy came back stage and offered to share a swig of Jack Daniels with me which took me a bit off gaurd but, free booze is free booze! We partyed with them afterwards and Jimmy told me the house in Jacksonville where the Family lived (rather sorted tale) will be turned into a Skynrd Museum. It's still in the planning stages.
