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

I can honestly say the cruise was incredible – from the music, food, drinks, and service from all involved. Everyone was cheerful and helpful. The Gary Hoey Jam was. The ultimate. I was tired and did not think I would be able to stay awake or stay on my feet all night long. All of the food establishments were very tasty and clean. Considering this is the peak of flu season, I think the ship was very clean and the staff went above and beyond to keep it that way. Great time had by all. Thank you everyone involved.

Patty, Cruise was incredible! Patty, Cruise was incredible!

We have been on all RLC’s and they have all been awesome! The lineup is always great!! The musicians are super friendly! Pam and her staff do an excellent job year after year!! Not only is the music great, but the people you met become lifelong friends. This is the best vacation ever! If you haven’t been on one yet, book now….they sell out quick!

Ali & Tony, AWESOME!!!!!! Ali & Tony, AWESOME!!!!!!
