The Aristocrats

The Aristocrats is a progressive rock band. It is composed of Marco Minnemann on drums, Guthrie Govan on guitar and Bryan Beller on bass. The group formed after playing a concert warmly welcomed by the audience at the Anaheim Bass Bash during the Winter NAMM in January 2011. The trio had only rehearsed once before the concert. Originally, they had rehearsed with guitarist Greg Howe, who will be replaced for the concert by Guthrie Govan at the last minute. Their musical style is inspired by the fusion of the 1970s (Return to Forever), progressive (King Crimson), instrumental rock (Steve Vai, Joe Satriani), rap metal (Rage Against the Machine) and with a touch of absurdity (Frank Zappa). Bassist Bryan Beller explains: "We ended up mixing our different inspirations. I wrote Sweaty Knockers especially for Guthrie for laughs, and Guthrie wrote I Want a Parrot>. " After the release of their first album in September 2011, the trio will tour in 2012. Later in the year, they released their first live album, Boing, We'll Do It Live! In July 2013, their second studio album, Culture Clash, was released, followed by another tour in North America in 2013 and Europe, South America and Asia in 2014. After the tour, the band compiles six different concerts into a second live album, Culture Clash Live! announced on CD/DVD on January 20, 2015>>>>. On the same day, the band released its "official bootleg" of the tour, a limited 2CD box set edition, entitled Secret Show: Live in Osaka>. During their tour in January 2015, the band started a third studio album, Tres Caballeros. The album is recorded in February and published on 23 June 2015
