THE MOBY DICKS are the house band from Bonzo’s Birthday Bash, the much talked about and hugely successful John Bonham tribute concert on May 31st, Bonzo’s exact 64th birthday that featured 22 of rock’s best drummers. This is the same band that “house banded” for the 3 Groove Remains The Same Bonzo tributes.
The band features WHITESNAKE/LYNCH MOB drummer/S.U.N. guitarist/Bonzo Bash creator Brian Tichy on drums, Whitesnake bassist Michael Devin, VINCE NEIL guitarist Brent Woods, BONHAM/Lynch Mob vocalist Chas West, and JASON BONHAM’S LED ZEPPELIN EXPERIENCE Stephen LeBlanc on keyboards. These guys are giving an unknown drummer a chance at jumping up on the kit for their next show at Key Club on July 12th.
Tichy says: “I’ve gotten so many requests from drummers that worship Bonham and want to participate in the Bonzo Bash shows. It gets a bit overwhelming trying to be fair and balanced so this is the start of something we will continue on with future Moby Dicks shows and Bonzo Bashes! Let’s give other Bonzo Freaks a chance at being recognized and playing with the same band that has supported everyone from Steven Adler, Carmine and Vinny Appice, Kenny Aronoff, Charlie Benante, Jason Bonham, Danny Carey, Abe Laboriel, Mike Portnoy, Chad Smith, and about 25 more amazing drummers!!”
