    Join us at The Guitar Sanctuary for a special night with bassist Bryan Beller (Steve Vai, The Aristocrats, Dethklok) his wife Kira Small on Thursday March 7th in conjunction with our friends from Mike Lull Basses, D'Addario Strings, and Planet Waves Cables.

    Bryan Beller has maintained a frenetic, multi-faceted career as a bassist, composer, writer and clinician for nearly twenty years, earning a reputation as a uniquely talented yet supremely tasteful hired gun bassist for adventurous rock guitarists and singer/songwriters alike. He was Steve Vai’s choice for the 2009 live CD/DVD Where The Wild Things Are, a tour-de-force document of the six-piece Vai band Beller anchored on bass in 2007. His new band The Aristocrats (with guitar phenom Guthrie Govan and drummer Marco Minnemann) is one of the hottest new acts in rock/fusion today; their latest release BOING, We’ll Do It Live! The Aristocrats At Alvas Showroom comes out in December of 2012. He’s also in the "band" Dethklok, a tongue-in-cheek extreme metal band borne of the hit Cartoon Network "Adult Swim" show Metalocalypse; Beller tracked the entire Dethalbum III and has anchored the band for three nationwide tours to date, alongside metal monsters Mastodon and Machine Head, among others. He’s also been a musical partner of freak/genius guitarist Mike Keneally (Frank Zappa) for over fifteen years and ten albums. More recently he’s been showing his versatility touring intimate venues with his wife, R&B/soul singer/songwriter/keyboardist Kira Small. On his own, Beller’s released three rock/jazz fusion solo albums to widespread acclaim: 2003’s View, 2008’s Thanks In Advance, and 2011’s live CD/DVD Wednesday Night Live. His first instructional DVD, Mastering Tone And Versatility, was released by Alfred Publishing in early 2012. As a pure player, a masterclass clinician (sponsored by Mike Lull Basses, Gallien-Krueger Amps & D’addario Strings), a former Contributing Editor for Bass Player Magazine, and a former VP of SWR bass amps, Beller brings a global perspective to the world of bass.

    Bryan will be playing songs from his vast library, as well as demonstrating his Mike Lull Basses, D'Addario Strings, and Planet Waves Cables, along with answering questions about all things bass.

    The clinic will be held on The Guitar Sanctuary Stage at Zin Zen Wine Bar, located at 6841 Virginia Parkway, McKinney Texas (about a half hour north of Dallas)
