About Chappell

In 2014 father and son joined forces to cultivate a sound that could only be created through loss, struggle and the love of rhythm. Chris Pyle and his father Artimus Pyle, drummer of Lynyrd Skynyrd (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2006) have come together to form Chappell…whose music can only be described as Southern Fried Tribal Boogie!!

Chris worked as his father’s Drum Tech on the Skynyrd Tribute Tour, drummed for Royal Trux and traveled through India and Africa absorbing the roots of rhythm. After years of drumming for multiple working bands Chris has stepped out front to sing his songs. The heart of Chappell’s music comes from his unique perspective of growing up in the trenches of rock and roll to dodging Molotov cocktails in Jerusalem, Israel.

Chappell is:
Artimus Pyle – Drums
Chris Pyle – Guitar, Vocals, Percussion
Craig Boykin – Bass
Matt Lane – Lead Guitar
Owen Aschoff – Percussion

What Passengers Think

My husband and I took a chance and booked our first ever cruise in December 2011 after listening to a radio commercial about a cruise with ZZ Top, George Thorogood and John Kay playing and cruising with us (among many other great bands!). This was “Woodstock on Water”! We have been on every one since and have made many new friends who we correspond with throughout the year and look forward to seeing every year. There should be a different word than “Cruise” to describe this because it does not compare to a standard cruise by any means. Seeing- greeting-hugging-taking pictures with so many of our idols – PRICELESS!! Pam and the NAHA staff do an outstanding job and we always book as soon as each cruise booking opens – no need to wait to see who will be rockin’ us! If you like classic and southern rock and have not booked this cruise, do not wait or you’ll miss out. It sells out earlier every year. (Love to all the Dfers and FB Rock Legends Cruise Fans and FB Rock Legends Cruise Party’ers!)

Judy Diaz, DON'T MISS OUT! Judy Diaz, DON'T MISS OUT!

This was my 5th RLC out of 6 and will be on the next one in 2019. It is the only way to do a cruise and one of the best ways to have an over the top rock ‘n roll experience. There are three venues with shows going on from 10 am to past 12 midnight – every day! Once you’re done for the night, the convenience of your cabin is just steps away. The RLC lineup speaks for itself. There is so much talent, legends and upcoming rockers, on the ship! The people, your fellow rockers, are all there for the same reason – rock ‘n roll! Don’t be surprised if you run into a few rock stars on the elevator or just hanging out watching a show.
