The Parlor Mob (originally named What About Frank?) is a rock band founded in New Jersey in 2004. The band presently consists of singer Mark Melicia, guitarists David James Rosen and Paul Ritchie, drummer Sam Bey and bassist Anthony Chick. The original members of the band independently released an album in 2005 entitled The March Of The Elephants. The band won the title of Best Live Band at the Asbury Music Awards twice, attracting the attention of Capitol Records. After recording a 4-song EP for Capitol, the band was dropped in the wake of a corporate merger between Capitol and Virgin Records. The band chose to give away the EP for free, eventually attracting the attention of Roadrunner Records, with whom the band signed a record deal in 2007.

Eventually, producer Jacquire King expressed his interest in producing the band's new record. On September 28, 2007, the band began recording at Asheville, NC's Echo Mountain studios. The album, And You Were a Crow, was completed on Halloween of 2007 and released digitally on April 11, 2008. The CD was released on May 6, 2008. The band was featured on the iTunes Store's section of best new rock artists in 2008. The lead single, Can't Keep No Good Boy Down, was featured in the sixth season of the television show Entourage.

In 2011, the band released its second LP, entitled "Dogs". On August 15, 2010 the band released a statement via their website in regards to their upcoming album: "The process that brought us here with these songs was long, extremely intense and emotionally heavy, and we're fully aware it took a bit longer than expected, but the recording process we plan on making fast, spontaneous and equally as emotionally charged. We're currently more powerful than we've ever been, and feel more strongly about these songs than we ever have about anything in our career. We cannot wait to bring you this record". « hide
