Guthrie Govan, Bryan Beller: added to Joe Satriani's G4 Experience

Hello everyone,

While we put the finishing touches on Culture Clash Live, we have some breaking news:

We are proud to announce that The Aristocrats will take part in The G4 Experience featuring Joe Satriani, Animals As Leaders and Mike Keneally, a superfun and intense weeklong retreat in beautiful Cambria, CA from June 28 - July 2, 2015. Tickets are limited and they just went on sale today! Guthrie, Bryan and Marco will be doing individual workshops as well as a group workshop, and who knows what else will happen with that collection of people all in the same vicinity.

Says Guthrie: "“Every aspect of this event promises to be a lot of fun, but I must say I’m particularly looking forward to the fact that the whole Aristocrats trio will be there: this means that we’ll be able to move beyond a strictly guitar-centric focus and devote some time to the way band members work together when writing, rehearsing or touring. That stuff is hugely important but all too often gets overlooked.”

For more info and to purchase tickets, just go here:

“This year I’m happy to announce an exciting new G4 line up, with each player selected for their stunning musicianship and original approach to guitar playing.  Guthrie will be bringing his bandmates from The Aristocrats – Bryan Beller on bass and Marco Minnemann on drums. Tosin will come with Animals As Leaders featuring guitarist Javier Reyes and drummer Matt Garstka. Mike “The Wizard” Keneally returns this year bringing his unique multi-instrumental style and approach to the camp giving clinics, playing a solo show as well as being part of my band’s performances and to round out our teaching/performing staff will be my good friends and all-around awesome guitarists Doug Doppler, Bruce Bouillet, and Andy Aledort.”

Meanwhile, the Saturday night show for our January 2015 4-night residency at Alvas Showroom (where we'll be debuting our new material!) is nearly sold out, and the others are filling up as well. Don't forget about this, as by the time January comes around this small venue might not have seats left:
