The Artimus Pyle Band is a high energy, true-to-the-music, and true-to-the-era rock group. Artimus Pyle, Brad Durden, Jerry Lyda, Tony Black, and Scott Raines are not only a group of friends and contemporaries but a group with some of the most seasoned musicians in the southeast. Artimus has shared with stage with The Rolling Stones, The Who, Warren Haynes, Charlie Daniels Band, Marshall Tucker Band, Paul Roger, and ZZ Top just to name a few. From Freebird to Sweet Home Alabama, the Artimus Pyle Band give fans the best of Skynyrd with one of the men who made it! Doors will open at 6 p.m. Mark Larkins will open the show, and the Artimus Pyle Band will take the show at 7 p.m.
