About the Aristocrats
Formed in January, 2011 after a mind-blowing debut performance at a NAMM bass event, The Aristocrats can be viewed as the "Cream of the 21st Century" featuring the amazingly virtuosic guitarist/composer Guthrie Govan, bassist extraordinaire Bryan Beller who has played with the likes of Steve Vai, Dethklok, and Mike Keanelly, and unbelievable drum virtuoso Marco Minnemann whose credits include Necrophagist, the Buddy Rich Big Band, Eddie Jobson, Mike Keanelly, and Adrian Belew, just to name a few.

This band is more than three extraordinary virtuosos getting together for a typical one-off "superband" project. The Aristocrats is a close collaboration between three unique artists contributing their original musical vision and the result is a whole that is much greater than the mere sum of its parts. Synergy and chemistry are words that come to mind to describe the incredible musical interplay between these three monster musicians.
