with Travis Larson Band
From the Promoter
(Guthrie Govan, Bryan Beller and Marco Minnemann) have released critically acclaimed albums, toured the world, and established themselves as one of the most musically original, refreshingly irreverent, and astoundingly entertaining instrumental rock - fusion acts on the planet. Call them a virtuoso supergroup if you must, but their musical high - wire act - employing random amounts of rock, jazz, pop, metal, and even traditional country - is informed by the spirit of a true band, one whose improvisational soul allows for anything to happen onstage at any moment...including the occasional wink and nod at the audience.
The Aristocrats are touring to promote their most ambitious and
exploratory studio album yet, entitled
You Know What...?, and will be supported by fellow rock-fusioners, Travis Larson Band.
With seven studio albums and three full - length performance DVDs, the award - winning Travis Larson Band is firmly rooted as one of instrumental music’s premiere acts, having worked on record with Steve Lukather (Toto), Victor Wooten (Bela Fleck), Dave LaRue (Joe Satriani, John Petrucci, Dixie Dregs), Vinx (Sting, Herbie Hancock).
Years of ambitious touring and shared live billing with notables such as Ted Nugent, UFO, Steve Morse (Deep Purple, Dixie Dregs), The Aristocrats, has established the band’ s reputation for live performances that masterfully deliver full throttle rock -
"Silky bends, sweet legato lines, and tuneful shred characterize
Larson's playing... instrumental rock fans should catch this guy."
