The Winery Dogs bootleg casino video, “Hot Streak”


This is The Winery Dogs.

They are a supergroup composed of drummer Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater), bassist Billy Sheehan (David Lee Roth, Mr. Big), and singer/guitarist Richie Kotzen (Poison, Mr. Big).

They have a jazzed up blues rock approach that highlights the level of experienced musicianship the trio brings to the stage.

The band has a new video called, “Hot Streak”.

Kotzen remarks on the videos creation: “During our 2015 USA tour leg we had some time off at a casino in the Midwest. Our video director, Vicente Cordero, was with us documenting our performances and one day he followed us with the camera while we were lurking around a casino. We saw the footage and thought it could tie in to a video for our song, ‘Hot Streak.’

The funny thing is when we got to the craps table, I was really playing! I bought in for like a grand or so, and my only focus was not losing and staying in long enough to get a chance to throw the dice for the video. Luckily, I ended up throwing the dice for what felt like 20 minutes (laughing) and making a bunch of numbers, eventually hitting the point which was a pretty nice payout for everyone at the table. You actually see us winning for real! It wasn’t staged. The entire table knew we were filming and at the very end when we all win you see the pit boss and stickman look into the camera and give the thumbs up! It was perfect timing.”
