The Winery Dogs Coming to DeVos Performance Hall

Vibrant powerhouse trio The Winery Dogs will be live in concert Monday, March 13, 2023 on the DeVos Performance Hall stage.

The American rock supergroup is comprised of band members; Richie Kotzen, Billy Sheehan and Mike Portnoy.

Following a seven-year break from the studio, The Winery Dogs are back in full force with their aptly named third album III, which is set for release on February 3, 2023 on the band’s Three Dog Music label (via Burnside Distribution/The Orchard) on CD and all digital formats—a vinyl edition of III will also be forthcoming in just a few months. III was self-produced by The Winery Dogs and mixed by longtime band associate Jay Ruston.

From the clarion call for connection and societal understanding in “Mad World” to the door-opening personal realizations of “Breakthrough,” to the undeniable muscle-flexing reign of the white-hot “Pharaoh” and the album-closing energy spillage of “The Red Wine,” all 50-plus minutes of III prove The Winery Dogs haven’t lost a step when it comes to conjuring fresh hooks, gutbucket grooves, and bold harmonies.

As III handily proves with each successive listen, just like a fine wine given the right amount of time to ferment and to breathe, The Winery Dogs keep on getting better and better with age.

Prior to the Winery Dogs, all three members have had successful careers with other bands. Richie Kotzen is known as a former member of bands Poison and Mr. Big, as well as having a consistent solo career with many albums released. Billy Sheehan is known for playing with Steve VaiDavid Lee Roth, Talas, and Mr. Big.
