About Chappell

Chappell’s Southern Fried Tribal Boogie was born out of the swamps of Mississippi where the plane of Lynyrd Skynyrd fell to earth. Skynyrd’s drummer, Artimus Pyle called home after walking miles through the swamps. And his son, Chris Pyle, took the call. That conversation set the stage for the next 30 years for both of them. Chris worked as Skynrd’s drum-tech on the tribute tour, drummed for Virgin recording artists, Royal Trux, and traveled through India and Africa absorbing the roots rhythm. Artimus spent the next 30 plus years honoring the spirit and music of Skynyrd, and following his own path of rhythm. In 2014, father and son joined forces to cultivate a sound that could only be created through loss, struggle, and love of rhythm. A sound that honors the spirit and history of one of the world’s biggest bands, through the voice of one of it’s prodigal sons.

Chappell is Matt Lane, Chris Pyle, Artimus Pyle and Tony Black.



What Passengers Think

This was our first cruise as well as first RLC. What a blast! NAHA knows how to do it right! Practically non stop music from big named artists to fabulous up and coming musicians, this cruise rocks! I got hooked for Sammy but seeing some of the other artists were also highlights! And everybody we met was very cool! Maybe not for VII, but we will be back in the future!

LeslieG, great experience! LeslieG, great experience!

RLC 6 was our 5th Rock Legends Cruise, can not wait for RLC 7. Best. Time. Ever.
