Aristocrats Tour Done, Satch Tour Begins, New Keneally Album Out!

Friday, August 30th, 2013

The headline pretty much says it all, doesn’t it?

The Aristocrats “Culture Clash” U.S. tour was a rousing, blowout success, exceeding all expectations we ever could have hoped for. There is no way I could possibly express enough gratitude to all the people who came out to see us across the eastern and midwestern U.S.  It was all done in two cars with just five people – three band, two crew – and we hardcore DIY’d it across America, overcoming sleep deprivation and other obstacles to make it all work. Here’s a shot of the touring entourage below (L to R): Chris Del Nostro (driver/stage tech), BB, Marco Minnemann, Guthrie Govan, and Corey Madson (driver/merch). It was taken in Lockhart, TX, outside one of the most famous BBQ joints in the country, Smitty’s Market. The clothes I wore that day *still* smell of barbequed meat.

Meanwhile, I’ve gone straight from that adventure to another one – the Joe Satriani U.S. Tour. Dates below:

And last but certainly not least, Mike Keneally has a new album out called “You Must Be This Tall“.  It’s a typically wide-ranging and fearless piece of work, and features performance by me, Marco Minnemann, Joe Travers, Rick Musallam, and a one-song collaboration with Andy Partridge. It’s awesome and deserves your attention!

I’ll have lots of news about next year pretty damned soon. This oughta keep you busy in the meantime. :-)
