WesFest 7: Sunday 3/4/12 at The Roxy In L.A. – featuring The Aristocrats!

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

Yes, it’s true. The Aristocrats are headlining WesFest 7.

I will freely admit that this wasn’t my idea. I’m usually the central organizer and promotions guy for WesFest, even if I’m playing here and there. But everyone else on the team felt really strongly about it, so I’ll just say that, on behalf of Marco and Guthrie, we’re all proud to be a part of this amazing event.

The rest of the lineup is pretty killer as well: The Casualties Of Jazz (a Black Sabbath jazz organ trio!), Mike Keneally, Jackie Daum, Joe Brooks, Colin Keenan, and Danny Mo & The Exciters, featuring 2011 Wes Wehmiller Scholarship Winner Hayley Jane Batt, and the legendary John “JR” Robinson on drums.

Our goal for the WesFest 7 fundraising drive is to raiser another $20K for the fund. We’ve done it each of the past two years, and with your help, we’ll do it again. You don’t even have to go to the show to help out – you can just donate. Please visit The Wes Wehmiller Website to learn more about Wes himself, why we do WesFest every year, and what the cause is all about.

Some sponsors really stepped up to support this year’s event, and I want to thank each and everyone of them right now:

Gallien-Krueger Amplification
Mike Lull Custom Basses
D’Addario Strings
DW Drums

There’s a ton of info about WesFest 7 over at the official WesFest 7 webpage. Please check it out, and know that you’ll be hearing more from me about this amazing event over the next couple of months. Thanks in advance (heh) for your indulgence. In the meantime, please enjoy this awesome WesFest 7 poster graphic.


Kira Small/Bryan Beller Southern Tour Starts This Week! AR, OK, TX, LA, MS, TN…

Sunday, November 6th, 2011

That’s right. I’ve been home for way too long. 10 whole days. Time to get back out there, Southern-style.

Kira and I are hitting Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and even our hometown in support of our just-released album Live At The White House. (Thanks SO much to all who pre-ordered that, by the way!) It all starts this week.

Details can be found on the Calendar page,  as well as in the latest and greatest BellerBytes. There’s also some brand new 2012 dates, freshly posted for your perusal. And the BellerBytes has some insider info about my instructional DVD, coming out in early 2012.

Time to rehearse. Gotta remember how to play fewer notes for a while.
