Mike Portnoy has made a point to keep busy ever since it was deemed safe to go on tour again. Last fall, he reunited with Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci for an instrumental tour that covered only Petrucci’s solo material, and not a lick of Dream Theater.

A reunion’s a reunion, but while his ex-band is spending the spring on the road overseas, Portnoy is back together with hard rock supertrio The Winery Dogs, featuring Mr. Big bassist Billy Sheehan and short-term Poison multi-instrumentalist Richie Kotzen.

The guys are promoting their new, third album together, properly titled III, and roll in for their first gig in Tampa Bay since a 2015 stop at the since-rebranded State Theatre.

Tickets for The Winery Dog's Friday night gig at Jannus Live run for $30 and can be purchased at The rock supergroup shares the stage with Tampa rockers 
Roxx Revolt & The Velvets.
