Review by LaVon DuBois
The City Winery  
Nashville, TN / July 8, 2018

I have to first mention “The City
Winery” in our beautiful town of
Nashville! It was my first visit to this
awesomely beautiful venue. The
room is gorgeously decorated with
wine barrels visible inthe making of
their fabulous wine! My server was
a guy named Patrick and he was
awesome. This particular room in
this venue will accommodate 440-
500 comfortably for drinks and
dinner. Did I mention valet parking
at the cheap price of $6.00!
Although, I didn’t get the grand tour,
I am sure there are other rooms
available just as beautiful. I will
certainly be back real soon.
The Artimus Pyle Band is the
Ultimate Tribute To Ronnie Van
Zant's Lynyrd Skynyrd. Thomas
Delmer “Artimus” Pyle is an
American musician known for
playing drums with Lynyrd Skynyrd
from 1974 to 1977 and from 1987 to
1991. Artimus will turn 70 years
young July 15th! Happy Birthday
Sir! Artimus being the only original
member of Lynyrd Skynyrd is joined
by Brad Durden, Jerry Lyda,Scott
Raines, and Tony Black. Although,
when they played at Nashville’s City
Winery, Tony Black was on tour
with Billy Bob Thornton. His fill in
musician was one of Nashville’s
own, Johnny Jones on bass helping
out for a couple of months.
Johnny is an excellent bass man
and fit in perfectly with the group.
The Artimus Pyle Band is highly
energetic bringing  out the best of
Lynyrd Skynyrd’s all time hits such
as Breeze, That Smell, Saturday
Night Special, Traveling Man,
Gimme Three Steps, Sweet Home
Alabama, Curtis Loew, and of
course the grandest of all,
“Freebird”. If you close your eyes
you can’t tell the difference in the
musicians from the original guys.
They are magnificent in every
aspect. Van Zant would be nothing
but proud of these guys for playing
the music of yesteryear and keeping
it rocking and rolling into the future.
I must add that Artimus Pyle is the
kindest, most considerate man to
the audience and his fans. He is the
most personable of men and a
delight to talk to. I have heard that
he never leaves a show until he has
spoken to the last fan that wanted to
meet him. He offers a meet and
greet if you will, free of charge, after
the show.  I do not know of any
others that are so kind. Artimus,
Ronnie is smiling down on you at
every show! I read somewhere that
you said no one would have known
your name if it had not been for him.
You are keeping his name alive in
the music you continue to share that
is so beautiful! Nashville Loves You,
I love you, come again you Southern
Rock Gentleman. You are always
welcomed here in the Musical City.
