“Thanks In Advance” Transcription Book Available NOW, Plus May/June Tours Data Dump

Saturday, April 23rd, 2011

This is one of those full service BellerBytes e-mails with all sorts of info in it.

What kind of full service info are we talking here?

* Details on the new “Thanks In Advance” complete bass transcription book, including special bass/drums-only and no-bass mixes for every song on the album

* A slew of Kira Small/Bryan beller tour dates in the Northeast, Mountain West, Southwest, and Northwest (almost four corners, baby)

* A one-time-this-year-only “Same Band” tour-style Mike Keneally Band/Bryan Beller Band show at The Baked Potato in early June

* A very special introduction to The Aristocrats, featuring Guthrie Govan, Marco Minnemann and myself (yes, that’s our band name)

I’m writing this from a hotel in Chicago where we’re making The Aristocrats record. This music is weird and challenging and fun. I’ll have more to say about it soon – like, after I learn how to play all this stuff.

As you were,

Full details are right here in the latest BellerBytes

I’d write more but we’re on the road and getting a tire repaired in Kenosha, WI. If that’s not living the dream, I don’t know what is.


“Wednesday Night Live” Now Available For Digital Download

Friday, April 1st, 2011

It’s true. And I know some of you are digital-only music consumers at this point. I can get with that if you can get with this:


The pre-ordered CD’s have shipped. The DVD has just been approved for manufacturing and will be shipping in May. There’s more, including April tour dates with Kira Small and a few other tidbits in the latest BellerBytes.

That’s all I got. It’s 1:19am and we hit the road at 9:30am tomorrow morning. Don’t forget to check the Calendar page to see if the mighty minivan is stopping somewhere near you.

Oh – if you already pre-ordered “Wednesday Night Live” then I heart you very much. I really hope you like it.
