The Winery Dogs ‘Dog Camp’ ready to kick off on July 21st

The Winery Dogs ‘Dog Camp’ ready to kick off on July 21st

Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan, and Richie Kotzen of The Winery Dogs are ready to host their "Dog Camp," an unforgettable program that will enable campers to get up close and personal with three legends as they attend instrument-specific clinics, learn songwriting mechanics, and enjoy intimate performances from the group.

Dog Camp will be held July 21st-25th at the Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, New York. The Winery Dogs are excited to have drummer & percussionist, Mike Bennett (Richie Kotzen, Bruno Mars, Hilary Duff, Stevie Wonder) on board as a special guest camp counselor.

Mike Portnoy says about the camp: "If you’re a drummer, we’ve got a course path for you. If you’re a bassist, we have you covered. Same thing goes for guitar players. However, it’s going to be a much deeper experience. We’ll be living together, hanging together, and jamming together. We want you to ask as many questions as possible, and we’re going to engage you on a one-on-one basis to help you realize your goals as a player.

In addition to the instrument-centric sessions, we’re going to offer classes from the entire band with the three of us leading. During these, you’ll get to learn more about the craft of songwriting, and we’ll answer any and all questions about the music industry. We want to dispel the myths and show you what’s really up!"

“Having a band-taught class is a unique concept,” says Richie Kotzen. “We’re a unique band in the sense that we’re all very strong personalities in the way we play. When Billy plays the bass, you know it’s Billy Sheehan. He has his thing. It’s the same thing with Mike. I’d like to think the same about myself! As individuals, we have personalities, but when we come together, it creates something else. This is something that’s so cool to explore in a clinic or class setting.”

One of the things that we’re all looking forward to is the performance aspect. We’re going to play live for you, giving a series of very intimate concerts. This is the best way to see The Winery Dogs, and we’re going to bring it. It’s about to get rowdy."

“I want to emphasize that players should keep an eye on what we’re doing and why during the performances,” adds Sheehan. “In between songs or mid-song, I want to stop to make a point about what’s going on and why. This is what happens. This is how it got here. This is why you need to know this. The ensemble playing and expertise of being able to play ensemble is a bit of a lost art with kids today. They don’t do what we did when we were growing up. Right away, we just got in a band whether we could play or not. We were in bands before we knew how to play. Now, kids want to get up to a level of expertise and then join the band. The band experience is where I got everything I have. That’s the focal point of the performances.”

Dog Camp counselor Mike Bennett is continues to emerge as one of the nation's top drummers. DRUM! Magazine has called him, "a full fledged chameleon, showing restraint or blasting chops when called for, with a clean sound, metronomic feel, and a distinctly melodic soloing style." Modern Drummer Magazine agrees saying that Bennett is, "on the fast track...a versatile drummer who is building a reputation as one of L.A.'s finest."

Able to easily cross many contemporary and world genres, Bennett has performed with artists such as Hilary Duff, Richie Kotzen, Benise, Mary Mary, Alicia Keys, Bruno Mars, Sabrina Carpenter, Slash, Stevie Wonder, Marie Digby, Jamie Foxx, Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band and many others on stages around the globe. He has also made television appearances on programs such as The Tonight Show, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Good Morning America, The Today Show and many more.

Off stage Bennett is an in-demand producer, programmer and television composer for networks including NBC, FX, HISTORY, DISCOVERY, MTV, VH1, HGTV, DISNEY CHANNEL, A&E and many others.

Co-Owner of Music Evolutions Studios, he keeps up an active schedule recording for projects around the world in their state of the art recording studio. He has also authored the Demystifying Drumming book series and continues to present clinics and workshops around the world.

Mike Bennett is proud to be an artist and clinician for Yamaha Drums & Electronics, Sabian Cymbals, Latin Percussion, Aquarian Drum Heads & XLN/Addictive Drums software.  check out more on Mike at: www.musicevolutions.com

‘The Essential Richie Kotzen’ collection set for release September 2

by on Jul.16, 2014, under CD/DVD RELEASES, LINKS, ROCK NEWS, VIDEO

‘The Essential Richie Kotzen’ collection set for release September 2

The talent of Richie Kotzen is without question, amazing. While his guitar exploits in The Winery Dogs have certainly exposed him to a whole new audience, in the U.S. pre-Winery Dogs, many only knew of Kotzen as the player who replaced C.C. DeVille at one point in Poison. But there was always a wealth of important and amazing solo material from Kotzen that raised his status in other parts of the world. It is time for the U.S. (and those who hadn't everywhere) to recognize this music he has made. 'The Essential Richie Kotzen' features 33 songs personally selected by Richie, with two new songs written while on tour in 2013, previously unreleased re-recorded versions of past songs as well as some favorites. This set also includes "Regret" and "Damaged" in their original demo versions, which were later re-recorded with The Winery Dogs.

This Kotzen career retrospective collection is set for release September 2 on Loud & Proud Records. It encompasses this iconic talent’s entire career of his most essential work and includes two CDs of classic material, acoustic performances, bootleg material and two brand new songs (“War Paint” and “Walk With Me”), and a DVD of music videos, acoustic performances and bootleg material. A three-song sampler, including the two new songs along with “Lie To Me,” is being serviced to rock radio stations later this month.

KOTZEN personally curated the tracks on the new release from his 18 solo albums in order to give listeners the most comprehensive, cohesive and concise introduction to his extensive body of work. “I’ve really changed and grown as an artist and as a person,” he says. “I hand-selected songs so newcomers can get into my music and learn who I am as a recording artist.”

With his guitar styles ranging from rock, blues, jazz and fusion to pop and soul, RICHIE KOTZEN has built a remarkably diverse 20 year career as a guitarist, singer and songwriter. During that span, KOTZEN toured with his trio extensively outside the United States, building a loyal fan base and selling out shows throughout Europe, Latin America, and Japan. In 1996, Fender guitars honored him with not one, but two signature model guitars. His signature model Telecaster is available worldwide and continues to be a top seller for the brand. In 2006, KOTZEN received one of his biggest personal honors when The Rolling Stones chose him to open up a string of Japanese shows placing him in front of some of his biggest crowds to date. He has not only built an incredibly successful solo career, but has also found himself writing, recording and playing live with a variety of different artists, including Jazz legends Stanley Clarke and Lenny White.

Blackberry Smoke - 'Shakin' Hands With The Holy Ghost'

Atlanta, Georgia's own Blackberry Smoke have been around for over 13 years now perfecting their brand of country-rock and doing it right. Their latest album, 'The Whippoorwill' was recorded in just five days in an old Methodist church in Ashville, North Carolina and is full of great southern vibed rock and country tinged tracks. The band are signed to Zac Brown Band's record label Southern Ground, and have done extensive touring supporting the Zac Brown Band. They are currently on a headlining U.S. tour that will take them into August. The U.S. tour includes stops at the Bonaroo Festival in June, and The Peach Music Festival in August. They'll head over to Europe in October and November, before wrapping up their touring year on Lynyrd Skynyrd's Simple Man Cruise from Nov. 16-20.

Blackberry Smoke shot a video for their track 'Shakin’ Hands With The Holy Ghost' in London last year, after playing the Classic Rock Awards after-show party. Watch the kick ass results. These guys are the real deal and deserve to break big in the U.S.

Jake E. Lee's Red Dragon Cartel - 'Deceived'

It is good to have Jake E. Lee back. Let me repeat...it is good to have Jake E. Lee back. His new project's self-titled debut album has been out for a bit on Frontiers Records, and it really is a quality collection with many different guest vocalists as well as main man DJ Smith.

Big-name guests on the album like Paul Di’Anno (ex-Iron Maiden), Rex Brown (Kill Devil Hill, ex-Pantera), Todd Kearns and Brent Fitz (Slash), Scott Reeder (ex-Kyuss), Maria Brink (In This Moment), Jeremy Spencer (Five Finger Death Punch), Robin Zander & Tom Petersson (Cheap Trick) and Sass Jordan (SUN) help make it an interesting album to listen to, but it comes down to the core band. Bassist Ronnie Mancuso and drummer Jonas Fairley join Jake and Smith on this pick, and this may just be the best song on the album.

Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band - 'Just Like Fire Would'

One of the better tracks on the 'High Hopes' album from the Boss, who will be inducting his own E Street Band into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next week. The album was panned a bit by critics for not being a completely evolved project, as most of the tracks were left over from his previous album. The addition of Tom Morello to the band has added a new dynamic, but I would to hear what more new music with his involvement will sound like, as I hope he can bring Bruce a little more rage with the next project. Morello will also be a part of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, as he has been tapped to induct KISS.

Bruce and The E Street Band will be back on the road in the U.S. starting April 6 in Dallas. The tour will continue through May and include a stop at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on May 3.

HBO will premiere 'Bruce Springsteen’s High Hopes,' chronicling the making of his 18th studio album, tomorrow night (April 4) at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT.

The half-hour documentary by Grammy and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Thom Zimny delves into the making of 'High Hopes,' which reached the No. 1 position in 20 countries after its January release. The film features rare behind-the-scenes studio and rehearsal segments, exclusive E Street Band tour footage and revealing interviews with Springsteen and album collaborator Tom Morello, guitarist for Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave. The two discuss their artistic choices for the project and how Morello brought a distinctive twist to Springsteen’s material.

Dream Theater - 'The Enemy Inside'

This great Dream Theater cut comes from the band's self-titled 12th studio album. It’s the second record to feature Mike Mangini on drums after Mike Portnoy’s departure in 2010, and the first time Mangini has had the contributed as a writer, since the material for 2011 album 'A Dramatic Turn Of Events' was already completed before he joined the band.

Guitarist John Petrucci says about the album, "This is the first self-titled album of our career and there is nothing I can think of that makes a statement of musical and creative identity stronger than that. We’ve fully explored all of the elements that make us unique, from the epic and intense to the atmospheric and cinematic.”

The latest track and video highlights the epidemic of returning U.S. war veterans suicide rates. More U.S. military personnel and returning veterans have died by suicide since the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan began than have died fighting there. The video includes actualities from actual returning vets, and shows the difficulty of adjusting back onto society after dealing with the atrocities of war. The video concludes with an update on the soldiers featured, and the www.saveawarrior.org webiste link, which you can go to and find out how you can help.

Dream Theater are currently on a U.S. tour until April 20, with dates continuing in Mexico, with European and South American dates keeping them busy until the end of July.

Lynam - 'Cold'

The Birmingham, Alabama rockers Lynam, led by frontman and songwriter Jacob Bunton, were originally formed in 2001, and have released multiple albums over the years. The band released 3 albums independently from 2002 - 2004 (White Trash Superstar, Bling! Bling!, and Life In Reverse), then in 2005, Lynam signed a deal with DRT/Universal Records and released the critically acclaimed album 'Slave To The Machine' in 2006. This album peaked at #21 on Billboard's Top Independent Albums chart and #19 on the Heat- seekers chart. The first single ‘Tanis’ went to #1 on both the active rock independent and main-stream rock independent charts. The band’s album 'Tragic City Symphony' (Megaforce/Mascot Records) featured the radio singles ‘Save My Soul’, ‘Lindsay Says’, and ‘Porn Star’. All three singles reached the top 10 on the active rock independent chart with ‘Save My Soul’ reaching top 5 with over 10 million in audience. Several of the album’s songs also were used in motion pictures, MTV, VH1, HBO, and video games. A Live album entitled 'Thank You Goodnight!' was released in November 2010 through Island Def Jam/New Ocean Media.

Bunton branched out, recording and joining Steven Adler's lastest project, Adler, but that project is in limbo for the moment. Jacob's Adler band mate Lonny Paul has since joined Lynam, along with returning bassist Mark Dzier. Their newest E.P. 'Halfway To Hell,' includes the blistering rock track 'Cold.' Lynam will be on the road all Summer long and into the Fall. Check out the band's facebook page for all the upcoming dates and check them out if they will be rocking near you!

Lynam Halfway To Hell album cover

Heaven's Basement - 'Nothing Left To Lose'

The UK rockers already made some inroads in the U.S. with their first track 'Fire, Fire' from their debut album 'Filthy Empire,' and now they have ascended even further up the charts with 'Nothing Left To Lose.'

The band consists of Aaron Buchanan (Vocals), Sid Glover (Guitar), Rob Ellershaw (Bass) and Chris Rivers (Drums). They are currently on their first major headlining tour of Europe, after touring the U.S. at the tail end of last year and earlier this year with the likes of Alice Cooper, Papa Roach, Bullet For My Valentine, Pop Evil and The Pretty Reckless. The band will follow the Europe tour with gigs in Latin America, then return to the U.S. starting May 6 in Pittsburgh for a slate of shows that will include Rock On The Range in Columbus, OH. and Rocklahoma in Pryor, OK.

Heaven's Basement's high octane brand of rock is certain to carry them even further in U.S. popularity. Their latest album is full of potential radio tracks and I can see Heaven's Basement headlining U.S. gigs at some point in the near future.

Calling all aspiring musicians of all levels and ages! The Winery Dogs ‘Dog Camp’ set for July 21-25

by on Mar.22, 2014, under LINKS, ROCK NEWS, VIDEO

Calling all aspiring musicians of all levels and ages! The Winery Dogs ‘Dog Camp’ set for July 21-25

One of the bands carrying the torch for quality rock have announced their first annual immersive program for aspiring musicians of all ages and levels. The Winery Dogs, Richie Kotzen, Mike Portnoy and Billy Sheehan are bringing 'Dog Camp' to the Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, NY this July 21-25.

The event will be produced by Dreamcatcher Events, and campers will get the opportunity to get up close and personal with The Winery Dogs, with instrument-specific and songwriting mechanics clinics, and there will be special intimate performances and jam sessions from The Winery Dogs and other special guests.

Tickets for Dog Camp are on sale now at www.winerydogcamp.com. Attendees will have access to all workshops, seminars, gourmet meals, performances, jam sessions, and camp activities. The band has also set up a facebook page for the event as well: www.facebook.com/WineryDogCamp

“We’ve all done clinics over the years, but it’s always been something that’s primarily centered around one instrument that each of us has typically done on an individual basis,” says drummer Portnoy. “Dog Camp is the first time that any of us have hosted or participated in a true ‘Band Camp.’ As a result of that, we’ve got some incredible surprises in store for everybody attending.”

“We’ll be living together, hanging together, and jamming together,” Portnoy continues. “We want you to ask as many questions as possible, and we’re going to engage you on a one-on-one basis to help you realize your goals as a player.”

“Having a band-taught class is a unique concept,” says Kotzen. “We’re a unique band in the sense that we’re all very strong personalities in the way we play. When Billy plays the bass, you know it’s Billy Sheehan. He has his thing. It’s the same thing with Mike. I’d like to think the same about myself! As individuals, we have personalities, but when we come together, it creates something else. This is something that’s so cool to explore in a clinic or class setting.”

One of the things that we’re all looking forward to is the performance aspect. We’re going to play live for you, giving a series of very intimate concerts. This is the best way to see The Winery Dogs, and we’re going to bring it. It’s about to get rowdy.

“What’s interesting is to talk about music, concepts, objectives, reasons why you’re playing the instrument, what you want to achieve, and how to get to that point, rather than talking about major versus minor scales. I love that feeling of sharing concepts with people. In The Winery Dogs, we all have various experiences that a lot of other people don’t have. It’s an opportunity to share that and grow; the feeling of moving forward and learning and experiencing something new. That’s what excites me about Dog Camp. It’s the creative process and creativity that make me want to do music, and I want to share that.”

“I want to emphasize that players should keep an eye on what we’re doing and why during the performances,” adds bassist Sheehan. “In between songs or mid-song, I want to stop to make a point about what’s going on and why. The expertise of being able to play ensemble is a bit of a lost art with kids today. They don’t do what we did when we were growing up. Right away, we just got in a band whether we could play or not. Now, kids want to get up to a level of expertise and then join a band.”

“[During the seminars] I like to have back-and-forth communication,” Sheehan continues. “I want to speak with people and hear their opinions, disagreements, and challenges. I believe anyone who attends will see a jumpstart in their quest to achieve their dreams.”

There is different pricing options and all activities will be held at the one hundred-acre Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, NY. Accomodations include comfortable, rustic country-inn accommodations and tent camping. There is a spring-fed swimming pool, on-site access to the Esopus Creek, and you can explore the splendors of the Catskills on the nearby network of hiking trails. Dedicated to the celebration of nature, music and the arts, this wonderland of mountains, fields, and streams is a world of its own.

The Winery Dogs are set to release two new special versions of their self-titled and self-produced debut album this April. 'The Winery Dogs Special Edition' will be comprised of two CDs. Disc 1 is the standard album and Disc 2 is the live 'Unleashed In Japan 2013', with 10 songs recorded live in Japan during their tour this past July, The track 'Criminal,' previously unavailable in the U.S., along with a 16-page booklet of live photos and lyrics will also be a part of the release.
