Winery Dogs 5/24 in Grand Junction

What a fantastic show last Friday night! “The best band you’ve never heard of” played an hour and a half of lights out rock and roll! Jim and I were both floored by Billy Sheehan, who’s rock bass playing is, technically at least (but I think sonically, too), the best in the world. Richie Kotzen sang so powerfully we were able to stand in the very front and still hear him well, and shredded both a Strat and a Tele expertly, with NO PICK used at any time during the night. Only Jeff Beck have I seen do anything close! Mike Portnoy drummed with expertise and conviction; great chops and I could tell he had a great time playing. Lived up to expectations!
