Well I shan't be seeing them. Mme Cholet and I are off for a romantic dinner after the afternoon session on Saturday then straight back to Whitemead for a bottle of fizzy wine (as she's driving and cant have any for dinner) and Match of the Day.

Never mind the Prog Cabin, sounds more like the Snog Cabin!

Guthrie Govan is a guitarist I have wanted to see for some time.  Dave Kilminster often plays with him.

The album's a bit too clever for its own pants.

I've seen Guthrie Govan playing with GPS and I've met Bryan Beller (Bass) several times when he's been part of Steve Vai's touring band.

I haven't heard anything from this band but I'll probably go

Here you go, this essay should answer things, they'll be a test later. Grin


THE ARISTOCRATS featuring

 Guthrie Govan, Bryan Beller & Marco Minnemann

 Featuring three of the most accomplished virtuosos in the world in the genre of rock-fusion instrumental music, The Aristocrats was formed shortly after January, 2011 after rock guitar sensation Guthrie Govan (Asia, Erotic Cakes, Dizzee Rascal), drum phenom Marco Minnemann (Adrian Belew, Necrophagist, UKZ), and bassist extraordinaire Bryan Beller (Steve Vai, Dethklok, Mike Keanelly) got together to do an impromptu Bass Bash event during NAMM. The three musicians hit it off so well in terms of musical interplay and chemistry that they immediately said after the show that they need to do this again. That talk evolved into making a debut album and the new fledgling supergroup went into the studio in Chicago in late-April to record the album which will be released in the summer of 2011.

 The music of The Aristocrats can be viewed as a melting pot of virtuosic guitar instrumental music reminiscent of "G3" artists like Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, etc.; the legendary 70's jazz-rock fusion music of seminal bands like the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Return To Forever, and Weather Report; the complex progressive rock of Frank Zappa, King Crimson, The Dixie Dregs, and UK; and the rock improvisational spirit of Cream, the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Jeff Beck. Alternately raw, sophisticated, intense, intricate, soulful, eclectic, lyrical and supremely musical, The Aristocrats sets a new standard for excellence in adventurous rock-fusion music that retains the energy of rock while exploring the outer limits of fusion that encompasses jazz, progressive, metal, blues, and even modern electronica-techno with a stunningly cohesive ensemble sound.

 See it and hear it all from this incredible new band that takes the power trio concept to a whole new level. If you are musically eclectic and have always wondered what it'd be like if a band of virtuoso musicians can fuse disparate musical styles and genres into one wholly integrated sound and style, The Aristocrats is the band you've been waiting for. The music of The Aristocrats is also where complex musical compositions and tonal soundscapes meet challenging improvisations and creative spontaneity. The Aristocrats is about taking rock-fusion into a new realm of uncharted musical territories. Come see and hear music that is simply unprecedented...
