“Street Survivors: The True Story of the Lynyrd Skynyrd Plane Crash” Movie & Artimus Pyle Band Live
In 1977, a plane carrying Southern rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd mysteriously runs out of gas mid-air en route to a concert, crashing into a dangerous Louisiana swamp while killing several of the band members, crew and both pilots. Street Survivors: The True Story of The Lynyrd Skynyrd Plane Crash tells the story thru one of the survivors, drummer Artimus Pyle, who not only survived the fatal crash (that claimed the life of the band’s founder and front man Ronnie Van Zant amongst others), but who also bravely pulled the remaining survivors out of the plane wreckage before staggering towards the nearest farmhouse in rural Louisiana to seek help. This film will not be released until June 30th, but Praia Entertainment Group has arranged for an Exclusive Theatrical Engagement so you’ll see it before anyone else! Following the movie, enjoy a concert by the movie’s subject, Artimus Pyle himself.
Lynyrd Skynyrd icon and 2006 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Artimus Pyle will take the stage of the Lorain Palace to tell his story through the songs that defined his career and pay tribute to the man who started it all, Ronnie Van Zant. Following his departure from Skynyrd in 1991, Pyle has been on an amazing path of solo records and projects, culminating into one of the finest tributes to southern rock royalty ever. The Artimus Pyle Band is a high energy, true to the music, true to the era, rock group. Artimus Pyle, Brad Durden, Jerry Lyda, Dave Fowler and Scott Raines are not only a group of friends and contemporaries, but also some of the most seasoned musicians in the country. The Artimus Pyle Band delivers hit after hit, night after night – from “Free Bird” to “Sweet Home Alabama,” they give fans the best of Skynyrd with one of the men who made it.
