The Bitters

Forged from the bowels of the Las Vegas rock scene in the fall of 2003, guitarist Jeff Murphy, bassist Vinny Moncada and drummer Frank Klepacki formed The Bitters: an instrumental power trio whose sole purpose is to exist in a state of self-indulgent musical freedom. Commonly described as a mix between Frank Zappa and Rush on steroids, their unique chemistry is a blend of diverse musical backgrounds drawn from old school metal, progressive rock, and early 70's jazz-fusion.

Their albums have received praise from the local press, as well as radio airplay, and have proven to standout amongst the Vegas band scene as one of the most original acts that truly no one sounds like. The musical skill of The Bitters is best received live where they not only pull off their difficult arrangements, but also allow solos to shine throughout.
