Larry Lynch and the Mob are an energetic 5 pc. band that can play a wide variety of all styles and types of music. Rock, Pop, Big Band Swing, Motown, Disco, Country, Dinner Music and so much more! We play music from the 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, 00's, to current music.
We are a high energy band that plays at a comfortable volume so everyone stays and dances all night long. We work with your schedule of events and play longer sets and take fewer breaks. We're happy to learn songs for your special dance(s) and we'll play only what you want to hear.
During breaks we play background music on our PA system. We love to entertain and our goal is to get everyone out on the dance floor. We encourage song requests and we have a wireless microphone you're welcome to use for toasts, speeches, etc.
We feature both male and female lead vocalists for the widest possible array of song selections. Our extensive songlist spans over 7 decades of the most popular music. We also help to emcee your event if requested. We welcome our clients to come see us play live at our rehearsal studio (in El Cerrito) to audition us. They can request to hear us play any songs, and we are happy to answer all questions they may have.
We have played over 1500 weddings. Larry Lynch was the drummer of the Greg Kihn Band in the 80's and was he was on the #1 hit "Jeopardy" and he also played on the big hit "The Breakup Song (they don't write em like that anymore)."

Worked with Larry on our wedding back in October 2016 at the Trappe Ranch in Sebastopol. First met Larry at a friends wedding in 2014 and we had a blast dancing all night long to the band. Larry was responsive to our initial inquiry and we were quickly booked. Made the whole playlist with songs from his website, and they band played them all. #1 compliant I hear from other wedding couples is their band gave them no input on the playlist. Larry was great to work with throughout the process, he even last minute introduced the wedding party. They knew our father/daughter, mother/son songs even though we gave them only a few days notice. Band was on time, set up and ready for the day of. Music during dinner was at a welcoming level. Later in the night they played some great renditions of newer dance songs we love like katy perry, carly rae, and then put on an epic 10 minute rendition of Shout. A month later we are still getting compliments about how great our wedding was, and we can't thank Larry enough.

Larry Lynch and the Mob performed at our wedding in Healdsburg in August. We really struggled picking a band as my fiance and I lived in New York and London. But as soon as we found Larry Lynch, we knew we had found the winner and it turned out to be one of our best decisions we made. They absolutely made the evening. The band has an enormous amount of talent, both on the instruments and vocally. They have an incredibly broad repotoire spanning many decades from classics to modern hits. And they aren't cheesy. I've attended many weddings with good bands but who seemed to be confused as to whether they were there to play music or be stand up comedians with a little music sprinkled in between. Larry Lynch and the Mob weren't like that - they focused on playing great music. Everyone danced (people I never even thought I would see near a dancefloor) and to this day we are getting compliments from our guests regarding how awesome our band was.

Larry Lynch was also super easy and pleasant to work with during the planning stages. He is a very personable, easy going guy who clearly loves to play and is just focused on making sure his band is prepared to give you the performance you want. We can't say enough good things about Larry Lynch and the Mob. They made our wedding receiption the perfect evening we had hoped it would be and recommend anyone in the area considering a band for their wedding to pick Larry Lynch and the Mob!

We hired Larry and his group for a celebration 37 years in the making. We knew the minute we heard them that this was the band for us! Though Larry is the lead for this group, each member is personable and professional. We recommend Larry Lynch and the Mob to anyone wanting a dance band with style and superb talent! Thanks for a wonderful evening Larry!

Did a great job for our wedding on June 13th, 2015. They exceeded expectations and kept people dancing the entire time. Larry was a pleasure to work with and I whole-heartedly recommend them. Larry even agreed to play the role of the wedding mc and was great.

In sum, nothing but positive things to say and you won't go wrong with them as your band.

Larry Lynch and the Mob are fantastic, nothing less than the perfect wedding band. We hired them for our June 6, 2015 wedding at Solage. As a bride planning her Napa wedding from Chicago, finding vendors was challenging. Larry was timely and professional in all of his communication, even calling me back within 24 hours of my initial message from a beach in Hawaii (he was on vacation). As for talent, this band is second to none. My father went to see a minimum of five different bands for me and Larry Lynch and the Mob were the best. Don't take my word for it, ask for references. I did, and spoke to two references -- one was the bride and groom, another was the father of a bride. Both said the same thing: Look no further, this band is the best. So true. Further, they are reasonable in their pricing and expectations. Our venue required a specific contract to be signed by the band and special insurance, and Larry had no problem arranging these things so that everything went seamless (we paid the fee for the insurance). On the night of the wedding, nearly every guest commented on how fabulous the group played throughout the evening. Their range from oldies and wedding classics to today's hits is incredible and difficult to find. They strike the balance of talent, professionalism, and fun impeccably well, and they can read the audience, which is invaluable. We had guests on the dance floor all night, thanks to this wonderful band. My family liked them so much that we want to use them again for an upcoming anniversary party that is in the early planning stages! Seriously, hire these guys. You will not regret it.

Larry Lynch and the Mob were one of the best parts of our wedding! The dance floor was never empty. Larry was extremely responsive, and gave us a lot of his time while we were planning. He was very flexible and professional. Super fun, great sound and talent. They could do A LOT with five people. Looking forward to our anniversary so that we can have an excuse to use them again ;).

I first heard Larry Lynch & The Mob play at my friends wedding years ago - we danced the entire night. After I got engaged, Larry was the first vendor I contacted, before I even knew anything else about my wedding! Larry was very responsive and SO accommodating. The band learned Bust A Move so that my husband could perform it with them at the reception, it was a blast. They have an extensive library of music to choose from, and do a great job of keeping themselves current with today's hits as well. Everyone at my wedding talked about how great the band was, we're very pleased we booked them.

Larry Lynch and the Mob were awesome- they played great songs, engaged the crowd, and played to the mood! People were on the dance floor before dinner was over. It was incredible! We had an evening wedding and had a full dance floor all night including the last song at 12:30am!
We had a ton of compliments on the band and they were priced right! Larry was extremely responsive with communication and we always had a response in 12 hours or less. WE LOVE LARRY! AND THE MOB!!

If you are looking for a band for your event, check out Larry Lynch and the Mob. They are very professional and will bring a great amount of energy to your party. Larry returns your calls promptly, they show up on time (actually early) and they will work with you to make sure that you get exactly what you want. Their play list is broad and extensive enough to entertain all ages. They "read the room" and play the correct music to keep the party rolling. The Larry Lynch and the Mob website provides samples of their music and has a direct link for communication. My family was very pleased with their performance and we have received many compliments for our choice of entertainment.

Larry Lynch and the Mob was amazing both to work with and as performers! They were really helpful throughout the entire wedding planning process which allowed our stress to be on other items. They were flexible and even learned some songs that we requested. I had so much fun with them on the wedding day and they kept everyone on the dance floor!
