The Winery Dogs, featuring Billy Sheehan, Mike Portnoy and Richie Kotzen, have announced “Dog Camp 2015,” providing an opportunity for musicians of all ages, levels and interests to get “up close and personal” with these three music legends.  Campers will attend instrument-specific clinics and get to hear intimate performances from the trio. Mechanics of songwriting are on the agenda too.

This year’s camp, which will take place July 27-31 at Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, NY, is a follow-up to last year’s inaugural event.  “The first installment was everything we had hoped it would be and so much more,” say the guys.  “This time, The Winery Dogs will have a new album, enhanced curriculum, a few surprises, and the wisdom of running this party once before. This will be fun!”

With an emphasis on educating and informing, the Dogs will share wisdom acquired during their years of experience in the music business, as they are intent of keeping their students on the right track.  “The expertise of being able to play ensemble is a bit of a lost art with kids today,” say Billy Sheehan. “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.”

The 2015 version of Dog Camp will also feature special guests David Ellefson (Megadeth) and Alex Skolnick (Testament).  It is being produced by Dreamcatcher Events.  For more information and to register for Dog Camp 2015, visit the camp’s website.
