A packed Whisky a Go Go served as a rock and roll sweat lodge last Friday when LYNCH MOB took the stage just before midnight. The lineup featured two LYNCH MOB founding members, ex-DOKKEN guitarist George Lynch and singer Oni Logan, along with drummer Jimmy D’Anda (BULLETBOYS) and bassist Sean McNabb (DOKKEN), displayed the tight camaraderie and chemistry that any LYNCH MOB fan would hope for.

The set consisted of favorites, mainly from the band’s 1990 debut album, Wicked Sensation. Four songs from DOKKEN, the 80s group that gave Lynch’s guitar playing a wider audience, made the set also. Two songs from last month’s release Rebel, “Automatic Fix” and “Testify”, contributed something fresh.

For the energetic crowd, LYNCH MOB opened powerfully with its classic, “She’s Evil But She’s Mine”. Logan voted with his voice, proving that after 30 years he’s still one of rock’s finest singers. With tambourine in hand and swaggering, Robert Plant-like fashion, Logan pushed the confines of the small Whisky stage throughout the set. A fit-looking Lynch laid down familiar guitar solos—a few flavored with nuances that were clearly made up on the fly—but met with technical difficulties early in the set.

The DOKKEN portion of the set began with Logan in powerful voice for “The Hunter”. McNabb, a strong bassist and background singer, along with D’Anda’s exceptional drumming, added visual excitement to the sound in the dimly-lit club. While the sound bugs in Lynch’s rig were being addressed by the techs, McNabb got down with an incredible bass solo in sync with D’Anda’s backbeat. Lynch then took his guitar and played a blistering version of “Mr. Scary”, despite the ongoing sound challenges.

Logan interacted with the crowd, cracking jokes about the overly-hot room. Lynch sang some background vocals but spent very little time talking between songs. Toward the end of the show, the guitarist said, “I want to be positive and everything, but I’ve never had a good show at The Whisky.” Lynch went on to say that a hometown show with friends and family in the audience should enjoy a show free of technical difficulties. Or, as he stated earlier: “This sounds like ass!”

The acoustics may have been lousy, but the band never gave up, to the benefit of the fans in the room.
