George Lynch - Lynch Mob Club Red

The legendary guitarist George Lynch performed with his band Lynch Mob at Club Red this past Friday night wowing us with his extraordinary musical abilities on the guitar that only Lynch can.

George Lynch is not just another guitarist. Lynch was one of the founding guitarist to use the art of tapping and pinching harmonics and has a very distinctive style all of his own. Lynch is always evolving as a musician,and has a hand in making quality products to produce unique sounds of the guitar. Many musical instrument manufacturers consult with Lynch creatively to produce equipment. The most notable is his endorsement with ESP Guitars. ESP has held George as their highest profiled endorser for close to 20 years. Electric guitar pickup guru Seymour Duncan has also honored George with his own signature series pickup called the “Screamin’ Demon.” Now a highly regarded standard in the guitar world, the “Screamin’ Demon” reigns as one of Seymour Duncan’s most popular items to date. Lynch also conceived the design for a triple amp selector switching system called the “Tripler” which is now being manufactured by Morley. And that is just to name a few.

Lynch has chosen these extraordinary musicians for this latest line up of his band Lynch Mob. This lineup includes vocalist Marq Torien (Bullet Boys), bassist James "JLo" LoMenzo (White Lion, Megadeath), and Brian Tichy (Tichy has toured/recorded with artists including Billy Idol, Ozzy Osbourne, Seether, Velvet Revolver, Foreigner, Pride & Glory, Glenn Hughes,Sass Jordan, Slash's Snakepit and his own band Ball.)

As the lights went down you feel the suspense of the crowd. You could hear Lynch before you could see him. When Lynch did hit the stage is was like a climax, a climax that kept surging from Lynch through the crowd and kept surging throughout the whole show. To see such a legendary guitarist so up close and personal as the venue Club Red can accommodate was exhilarating. Lynch Mob did not disappoint. The set list of the night included She's Evil, River, Hell Child, Into the Fire, Alone Again, Mr. Scary, Music Master, Where Do You Sleep, Tooth and Nail and rounded the show out with Wicked Sensation!! If you missed the show, then you missed a stimulating performance not to mention a Guitar Legend.
