Last week, LocalBozo.com brought you full coverage of Adrenaline Mob’s ‘Omertà’ release party at New York City’s Hiro Ballroom. In a word, the show rocked. The band was extremely tight, playing every song on their debut album plus a few surprises. In a music world filled with disposable imitators, the collective band of incredible musicians- Russell Allen, John Moyer, Mike Orlando, and Mike Portnoy- are out to change the misconceptions of what a supergroup can become.
If you enjoyed our coverage, and concert photos from the show, then you’re in luck. LocalBozo.com was fortunate to chat with the legendary drummer Mike Portnoy and newly added bassist John Moyer (formerly of Disturbed) before the high energy release party. Both gentleman were quite busy before the show with fan meet and greets and their respective families in attendance for this momentous occasion. Portnoy and Moyer spoke candidly to LocalBozo about forming the new band, Adrenaline Mob’s longevity, and their outstanding cover version of Duran Duran’s ‘Come Undone’ featuring Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale. Plus you’ll get to see some of the band’s live performance and the response of the night’s raucous crowd on hand. With a slew of dates yet to be listed and a busy summer on tap, check out adrenalinemob.com for everything you need to know before the band becomes a household name.
