The Winery Dogs Plan To Take 2017 Off To Work On Other Projects

The Winery Dogs, the group featuring Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan, and Richie Kotzen, will be taking a year off to focus on other projects, and will then regroup in 2018. Despite this, the band does have a new live CD/DVD in the works.

Portnoy told Eddie Trunk the following:

“We just wrapped the ‘Hot Streak’ cycle, which went for about a year and did really great all over the world. But we’re basically gonna take 2017 off. Richie’s gonna do his solo-band stuff, and I think Billy says he might be doing some MR. BIG activity. And I’m gonna spend 2017 with THE NEAL MORSE BAND for the first several months, and then possibly a new FLYING COLORS album, a new METAL ALLEGIANCE album. And also I’m gonna be doing shows with this thing called SHATTERED FORTRESS, which is me playing the DREAM THEATER ’12 Step Suite’ at select events and festivals throughout the world. So that’s my 2017. But Billy, Richie and I have penciled in tentatively reconvening after next year, and hopefully at the start of 2018. And in the meantime, I’m finishing up work on a live DVD, Blu-ray, CD for THE WINERY DOGS that we recorded in Santiago, Chile. And that should be out at the start of next year.”
