Bainbridge unveils headliner for ‘Rock in the Park’

BAINBRIDGE – Although still months away, Rock in the Park organizers are enthusiastically preparing for this year’s concert to benefit Chenango County’s Toys for Tots and are proud to announce a big-name headliner, 2006 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee, as well as one of the last living members of Ronnie Van Zant’s Lynryd Skynyrd, Artimus Pyle.



Pyle joined Lynryd Skynyrd in 1974 and is one of the only members to have survived the fateful plane crash of 1977, which killed three of the original band members, including Van Zant. Pyle’s band, The Artimus Pyle Band, is described as a tribute band to Lynryd Skynyrd and they will be flying in from North Carolina August to headline Bainbridge’s second annual Rock in the Park fundraiser on Aug. 10. Opening for Pyle’s band will be the Woodshed Prophets, returning for the second year due to popular demand adding a bit of local flavor to the concert.
