The Viper Room Show Review


By: Shauna O’Donnell

Those who know me know what a huge Parlor Mob fan I am and I make sure to make each show when they come to town. According to the band it has been two years since they have been to L.A. To me, it feels like it has been much longer. Needless to say, I was more than just a little excited to go to the show and see them after all this time. Upon arrival I walked into a very crowded Viper Room. It’s always nice to know that I’m not the only one who sees how talented these guys are. They played songs that were mostly off their new album titled Dogs, including their single “Into the Sun”, but they threw in a few off their first album as well. I was impressed with how Mark Melicia the vocalist is able to belt out one song after another and yet his voice is just as strong on the last song as it was on the first. It is obvious that the time the band has spent on the road and in the studio has paid off. They were the tightest I have ever seen them, including the addition of bassist Anthony Chick, who was a perfect fit. The thing about this brand of rock is that it can be enjoyed by people of all ages and that was apparent at this show.

The Parlor Mob released their sophomore album Dogs on October 11th via Roadrunner Records. Be sure to check it out! The band consists of Paul Ritchie (guitars), Mark Melicia (vocals), Dave Rosen (guitars), Sam Bey (drums) and Anthony Chick (bass).
