The Winery Dogs are back in the New York Groove and you don’t want to miss them.
The Scoop: The Winery Dogs have announced their “Who Let The Dogs Out” 2019 US Tour and if you don’t know who this band is yet then let me tell you a little something about this incendiary lineup. It’s a super-combinant of top drawer musicians that you might have heard about over the years. I’m talking about the one and only Billy Sheehan, bass guitarist of Mr. Big, Talas and a wide range of solo work. Mighty Mike Portnoy who is the skin basher supreme and currently working with Neal Morse and Metal Allegiance but he also worked extensively with Dream Theater and Adrenaline Mob. The trio is completed by Richie Kotzen who not only came to a lot of peoples attention from the band Poison but was also a member of Mr. Big when Paul Gilbert had left the lineup. Richie’s solo efforts are prolific but now its time to let the dogs back out into the yard and bring the people their combined musical talents once more. Here are the dates.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Historically speaking I’ve seen not only the Winery Dogs on numerous occasions but also the individuals in most of the acts that I outlined above and can say that if one of these shows will be your first time catching the Winery Dogs then you are in for a treat. What do you readers think about this tour? Will you be in attendance at any of the shows? Chime in down below in the comments section. See you next time.

At this point in time do I really need to say that I see a lot of concerts during the course of the year? I hope not because this one of the key factors that makes up my daily life as founder of the PiercingMetal brand. That said ?I wanted to once again use the Official Blog for the site to highlight a number of the shows that I attended during 2013 that I felt were the absolute best experiences. They’re not really in order of impact or importance but there are a few at the top that did hit me the hardest. Here we go.
1. Metallica @ The Apollo Theater: Thrashing like a maniac in Harlem? Yeah that happened. Classic set and free beer for the whole show. No complaints here.
2. Kamelot @ Stage 48: Returning to the headlining stage with Delain as support and Eklipse. This was a righteous show for sure. My belief in this band was reinforced yet again. I was not surprised in this.
3. Eddie Trunk 30th Anniversary Bash: Another one that I was super fortunate to participate in because an all-star jam with members of KISS, Overkill, Twisted Sister, Accept, Anthrax, Stryper, Guns n Roses and so many more is just impossible to qualify as being “an okay time”. This was insanity.
4. Trans-Siberian Orchestra @ Prudential Center: The final go round for the “Lost Christmas Eve” tour premise. Always a bombastic spectacle that needs seeing for believing.
5. Rock Allegiance Tour w/Volbeat & HIM @ Williamsburg Park: Two excellent main acts and solid support from All That Remains. Whew. Exciting for Brooklyn and you know how we roll in this borough.
