LIVE MUSIC —

ROCK OUT!  Nothing compares to the roar of a motorcycle engine quite like screaming guitars jamming out electric, teeth-rattling tunes!  The Annual Colonial Beach Bike Fest will give you that and more!  Colonial Beach, recently named the #1 beach in Virginia by USA Today, will have 4-days of FREE music on two stages that will rock you to your core.  From local, home-grown bands to national artists, Colonial Beach Bike Fest has it all and we want to share it with YOU!

BANDS

FEATURED ACTS OF 2018

BUCKCHERRY

Formed in 1995, Buckcherry is a Los Angeles based, hard-rock band whose reputation stems from their blistering live shows and party-band ways.  With Buckcherry at the wheel, rock and roll is in good hands. “It’s always been about having a good time,” explains Buckcherry guitarist, Keith Nelson. “You tune the noise out of your life for 40 minutes and enjoy yourself. That’s why we started doing this in the first place.”

Members:  Keith Nelson, guitar; Stevie D., guitar; Kelly Mieux, bass; Jimmy Ashhurst, bass; Josh Todd, vocals; Xavier Muriel, drums.

 

ARTIMUS PYLE

The  Artimus Pyle Band  is more than just a tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd, they are a tribute to the man that defined it – Ronnnie Van Zant.  Since his departure from Skynyrd in 1991, Artimus Pyle’s career has led him down an amazing path of solo records and projects culminating into one of the finest tributes to southern rock royalty.  The Artimus Pyle Band is a high energy, true to the  music, and true to the era, rock group.

Members:  Artimus Pyle, drums/vocals; Brad Durden, keys/vocals; Scott Raines, guitar; Jerry Lyda, guitar; Dave Fowler, bass

 

LONGREEF

Longreef is an Australian rock band formed in 2010.   A new fan had this to say after seeing them as an opening act in Myrtle Beach, “They opened the show with a dynamic five song set of originals.  If this is the opening act, the rest of the night is going to be amazing, I thought to myself. And as it turned out, LongReef did such a good job getting the crowd hyped up that all bands that played after them seriously paled in comparison.”

Members:  Josh Barker, vocals/guitar; Nick Miller, guitar; Tristan Davies, drums; and Jim Wark, vocals/bass.
