I'm 54 years old and love old school rock and roll, as well as R & B, prog and metal. I'm soooo disappointed with the acts that are on top of the charts these days. That's why it's so refreshing to hear three phenomenal musicians at a small venue. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed these guys show at The Tralf in Buffalo. If it were the 70's, they'd be playing and selling out stadiums around the country. They are arguably the best three piece band touring today. Great vocals, showmanship and total mastery of their instruments. What's not to love?

Seeing such an accumulation of eclectic talent on stage in such an intimate venue was extra special. They played with the same intensity and enthusiasm for this small gathering as if they were playing before10,000. I truly was impressed by the display of prowess by all 3 members in their respective disciplines . They looked like they were having fun also. Fresh music in our time of musical stagnation. Bravo!

This is a fabulous show! I'm am female and probably not your typical "rock fan". However this group appealed to me as soon as I heard them on Cirrus. I don't know why more people didn't go at the Effingham show. I just don't think they've had enough radio time. Maybe people didn't recognize the artists in the group? These musicians are some of the best from 90's era rock industry. Very talented musicians and excellent near perfect sound (stayed on key on pitch not screaming). Their voices were perfect, unlike a lot of rock singers in live performance. They have a classic rock sound. Kotzen sounded fabulous, though he didn't play to the crowd as much as the other two. He was pulling off a lot musically though, playing guitar and singing lead. His keyboard solo was great. He's famous for co-writing and playing the song Stand for Poison and music in the album Get over it by Mr. Big. His sound was perfect. Sheehan was fabulous and if people aren't aware he's worked with Steve Vai, David Lee Roth, and Mr. Big so he has to be one of the best. Portnoy (drummer) was the most entertaining of the bunch. Constantly playing to the crowd (even though our crowd was small) throwing drum sticks to lucky audience members, and doing all kinds of tricks with the drums while continuing to play flawlessly. He's a true musician technically and was given a scholarship to Berkley in his early years. He's the youngest member of the Drummers Hall of Fame. I guess the main issue with why this band isn't fabulously famous yet in the main stream (radio/cirrus listeners) is maybe people expect a traditional tribute band. But they are not that for sure. Don't expect to hear Mr. Big or Poison. They are awesome in their own right, without needing to replay the oldies. My favorite song is Elevate and they rocked that. It has a pop rock feel and should appeal to everyone. That song should be playing on every radio station, I don't get why it isn't!

I traveled from Minneapolis to see the Winery Dogs in Milwaukee. It was worth the trip. They are masterful musicians and songwriters. The sound system and mix were spot on. The venue was very comfortable. It is fun to watch Richie Kotzen shred with out a pick. Jeff Beck doesn't use one either, but he tends to play slow and melodically. Richie does the beck thing AND the shred thing. Great tone. Great phrasing. Full sound. It has been years since I first saw Billy play the bass. He hasn't lost his edge. He fills up so much space with his bass. He is like a rhythm guitarist and a bass player at the same time. When he is playing high notes on the bass, his foot is playin the really deep stufff on the synth. Portnoy is very entertaining. Throwing sticks. Spitting. Barking orders. Most importantly, keeping a solid groove with nice deep background vocals.

As a musician there are many aspects in music that I'm drawn to...with the winery dogs they absolutely are masters in all areas. Songwriting, performance, vocals, technicality what ever blows your skirt up!(make sure you wear underwear.) I can't wait for the next album and next world tour.

As an avid Portnoy fan when I first heard the Dogs I was enthusiastic to say the least having recently seen him perform with Sheehan a few months back and the new music is great. However, Richie Kotzen was out of this world, his performance along with Billy and Mike provided an unforgettable night of music, this band is better live than in the studio, obviously the individual talent is without question, but Richie's vocals live are spectacular, I cannot wait to see them again !!! This is must see for anyone who loves the power trio !!

Well, it isn't often that the rock & roll genre is represented by so much virtuosity in one band. Richie Kotzen is a band unto himself. Now he is teamed up with co-members that are up to the task of countering his staggering talent. And let me tell you these cats work hard for their money. There is clearly inspiration amongst them and I hope they stay together for a long time. Hopefully, they'll be back in NYC very soon. The fickle nature of popularity and the tastes of the American public are hard to plumb, but anyone with half an ear lobe will want to be at every Winery Dogs show they can. Come on now!

Horrible performances by all three artists. Don't get me wrong. All three performers show they really know their stuff, but they each cancelled each other out from their over playing of one another. Before it started I asked the guy next to me how he liked them since this was my first time. He said, Richie's a great lyricist!" Well I wish I could've actually heard a song, but all his vocals were cancelled out by the over playing of instruments. They were arrogant and unlikeable... especially the drummer spitting loogies across the stage. The only reason I didn't walk out was because I was with friends who apparently love them. I learned one thing for sure... my friend and I do not share taste in music. When I go to hear a band play I love hearing a variety of songs. Winery Dog's is a one trick pony with all their songs sounding alike. I couldn't wait for it to end.

While there is no doubt these guys are fantastic the sound at the Wildhorse was incredibly bad. You have 3 musicians and 3 vocal mics, why can't I hear the bass player? Why can't I understand the singer? Same way for both bands. Extremely disappointed in the sound and in Nashville there is NO excuse for bad sound.

I love the Winery Dogs, saw them two times last year, and I've been a huge Kotzen fan for years, however, the sound at this particular show was really disappointing. Seems they were having some technical problems. Kotzen even stopped the show in the beginning to try and get things straightened out. You could tell he was distracted and bothered by it the rest of the show. These guys are true professionals and so they powered through the show playing many of the songs I was hoping to hear, including the best of the new release. Just too bad Kotzen's great voice wasn't coming through.

If you get a chance to see The Winery Dogs - Do it. Musicianship of this quality doesn't come around very often and if you find musicians of this caliber usually it's being spewed through self indulgent nonsense. The Winery Dogs deliver high octane rock n roll done by virtuosos that is actually very musical and appealing. A Must See!

Amazing musicians. Watched in awe at the riffs these guy were playing. Kotzen was a little bitchy at the sound guys because he couldn't hear his monitor but they sounded awesome to me. Mike and Billy seemed a bit annoyed at him so I don't know how long this band will be around so go see them while you can. They really kicked ass

The Winery Dogs NEVER disappoint. With all three members being absolute virtuosos as their trades, you WILL leave the show mind-blown by the end.

The Winery Dogs put on an awesome show in Atlanta. Their new CD expands where their first CD left off. It is not a remake of the first one which is refreshing. The combination of the two CDs provides for a great set list. You add to that the unbelievable talent of Richie, Mike and Billy and this show is hard to beat. They are having so much fun playing and it really shows. The opening act Kicking Harold was really good and they are well paired with the Winery Dogs. I hope to go see them in California when they hit the west coast.

The sound mix was horrible and it took away from the exceptional musicianship of the band. The sound was muddy and it was difficult to hear all the intricate details of the bass and guitar. In addition, the vocals were completely lost in the mix. This was a major disappointment.

The warm up band was mediocre at best, I have seen Mike Portnoy with Dream Theater twice and although this band is teeming with talent, I never got the chance to hear it. The sound crew was horrible, there was no detail to the music all bass and kick drums, vocals were distorted and subdued. I felt like I was being punched in the gut. The bass was way too loud and I actually felt like I had done a mega set of crunches, you could feel the bass it was that loud. For as much of a musical perfectionist that MP is the sound crew was really bad. Overall it was just TOO LOUD It probably would have been a 5 star event if the sound crew had done a better job.

I'll keep it short and to the point: without referencing set lists and songs, this show was by far one of the most high energy, incredible shows I've attended in my life. And I've seen many bands over the decades. When you put an insanely talented trio like this together in a small theater in front of a civilized, grateful crowd there are no limits. This show was one of the last on the latest year long tour and they were tight. If you have never seen them; if you don't even know them yet appreciate the top tier of musicians doing what they do, please see The Winery Dogs. I cannot say enough positive things about this show other than I'm a dedicated fan now-

Powerhouse supergroup the Winery Dogs left their mark on South Florida's Culture Room by delivering the goods in the most kick ass way possible. The original songs, although newly written, already have a "classic" vibe to them, owed mostly to the monster chops & songwriting skills of these three road worthy rock veterans. It is exceedingly rare, in todays arid musical climate, to see the growth of such a raw talent that echoes shades of Rush, Cream, Mountain, Grand Funk and other 3 piece outfits from Rock's golden age. -Rich Vega

This was easily one of the greatest shows I've seen ever, and I've been going to shows for 40 years. I originally got interested because of my familiarity with Mike Portnoy's phenomenal work with Dream Theater. I also knew Billy Sheehan was a force to be reckoned with (dare I say the best of the best..?), but I have to admit I didn't know much about Richie Kotzen. What a revelation! If all he did was sing, he'd be one of my favorite rock singers. If he only played guitar he'd be one of my favorite guitarists - he's an incredible shred-master. The fact that he does what he does without a pick just makes it even more unbelievable. But what makes The Winery Dogs a must-see show (in case the level of musicianship wasn't enough!) is the fact that their songs kick ass, they perform them flawlessly with tons of energy, they entertain, and the whole time you have a huge smile on your face!

I was a little leery of the venue (my first visit to. Variety Playhouse) and I can tell you I cannot wait to go back! This was your textbook solid stripped down wide open rock show. Each member of the Dogs left it all out there on the stage. One of the best rock shows I have ever seen!

The Winery Dogs are a mega-super group that have come together to grace us with Rock n Roll magic! Billy Sheehan (silent 2nd h) is a master of the bass guitar. It's incredible to hear. Mike Portnoy entertains the audience from behind his kit with his remarkable talent and personality. Richie Kotzen is a virtuoso guitarist and unique vocalist. A real one-of-a-kind talent. He's pure soul. PLEASE do yourself a favor and go see this group. It's rare to find three master talents on the stage at one time.......

Awesome concert including the opening act the Sixxis. Both bands are have great musicians. The Sixxis have a great bass and drum player and their voices are perfect. Cool songs and arrangement. The Winery played like I expected. I was in front of the stage and every member is pure adrenaline. I hope to see again in the future. The Guitar tone of Richie is better than the CD. Billy sound great and Mike play the drums like is no tomorrow.

The Winery Dogs, as always, put on an amazing show. Any time I get to go see them I'm there. I am a huge huge HUGE Mike Portnoy fan and he is a wizard behind the kit ( does anyone remember his nickname was Animal or Iron Mike Portnoy?). Bully Sheehan is one of the most talented bass players to ever exist. And Ritchie Kotzen is just as awesome. Maybe I'm biased, but it doesn't get much better than The Winery Dogs. I did not like the venue that much though. It should have been all general admission instead of having tables and chairs up front. Even Portnoy made a comment about it. Anyways...I highly recommend getting their albums if you don't have them and also seeing them live. Very very amazing entertainers.

If you've never seen the best bass player of all time, you need to see these guys one time. Billy Sheehan is the world's greatest bass player. To team him up with Portnoy and Kotzen makes one of the best super groups ever. Best concert I've seen in a while!

Richie, Billy, and Mike are super musical talents. Besides enjoying their great music, I loved watching how much fun they were having performing together. They really connected with their fans too, Richie is the Guitar God. He has a very unique style.

The music was incredible live. They are such talented musicians to watch. Richie Kotzen is one of the best guitar players you will ever see!
