Lynch Mob was formed in 1989, from the ashes of George’s former band, Dokken. The band original line‐up also featured Dokken's drummer, Mick Brown. The first Lynch Mob album was released in 1990, titled Wicked Sensation peaking at #46 on the US Charts. Subsequent releases included Lynch Mob (1992) US #56, Smoke This (1999), REvolution (2003), Smoke And Mirrors (2009).
In 2012 Lynch Mob released “Sound Mountain Sessions” which included original Lynch Mob vocalist Oni Logan as well as bassist Robbie Crane (Ratt & Vince Neil, Black Star Riders) and drummer Scot Coogan (Ace Frehley, Brides of Destruction & Lita Ford).
In 2013 Lynch Mob released “Unplugged – Live From Sugar Hill Studios” (Rat Pak Records) an all‐acoustic performance of their classic hits.
In December 2013, Lynch Mob hit #6 on the Billboard Hard Rock Albums chart with the critically acclaimed album “Sun Red Sun” (Rat Pak Records). "Sun Red Sun" was the bands 11th release and was written and recorded by the same line up as the "Sound Mountain Sessions" EP (Lynch/Logan/Crane/Coogan). "Sun Red Sun" once again highlights the unique pairing of Oni Logan & George Lynch and showcases their ever evolving songwriting abilities.

Brian Martini~ Drums
Brian has covered a lot of musical ground in his tenure behind the kit. Words like solid, powerful, and creative only begin to describe his talents.
In his earlier years as a rock and hard rock player, his bed-rock sound was always an integral part of any band he was in. He really hit his stride with the Christian rock band Philadelphia when the band had received national recognition with two Top 20 radio air play songs from their debut album "Tell The Truth". One song reached the number two slot for several weeks. His fully customized and rather elaborate stage setup of those days went seamlessly with his over the top playing style. No other drummer in this area could deny that Martini's performances with Philadelphia was anything less than a sonic and visual display of skill mixed with a genuine love for the music.
Not being a one hat kind of musician, Martini has grown over the years musically, performing in many Classic Rock and R&B cover bands, even a Led Zeppelin Tribute band. Like with any musician, He feels the music is a passionate driving force within you.
As a member of Rize Above, he has found himself at yet another junction in his life where the passion for playing music is stronger than ever.
Jay Espinoza ~ Bass
Jay originally hails from the Midwest and now resides in Lake Dallas. He brings the "edge" with his aggressive, in the pocket, low end sound.
Over the past 10 years, Jay has been honored to share venues with some of the best musicians in the business, as well as notable local acts in and around the DFW Metroplex . His reputation and experience mesh perfectly with the hard hitting sounds of Rize Above.
