SOUTHERN ROCK REUNION-MONTE YOHO OF THE OUTLAWS-ARTIMUS PYLE

Had the great pleasure of attending the Southern Rock Reunion on August 4th in Elgin, Illinois. The line-up was a great one: The Outlaws-Artumus Pyle-Molly Hatchett-The Marshall Tucker Band. I got to see my friend, and long-time supporter of Beier Drums-Monte Yoho....finally! It had been some time. As always, The Outlaws were in spectacular form, and were simply incredible. It was also great to introduce Artimus Pyle to Beier Drums, and watch him work his way through all of the classic Lynyrd Skynyrd songs that his band plays. Monte was using his mainstay go-to snare-The Beier 1.5 Steel--6.5 x 14 live, with his 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 14 as an auxiliary. Thanks Again to Monte & all of The Outlaws, Artimus Pyle, and Ron Onesti who is the owner of Onesti Entertainment, The Arcada Theater, and a person who is arguably one of the best concert promoters in this country...
