Royal Crescent Mob was a four-person punk-funk band from Columbus, Ohio, that was formed in 1985. Also known to their fans as the R.C. Mob the band members included "Brian (B)Emch" (guitar), David Ellison (vocals, harmonica), Harold "Happy" Chichester (bass, vocals) and Carlton Smith (drums). The band released five albums of material and one ep in their nine year career. Two of these albums were released on Sire Records, a Warner Bros. Records subsidiary. In the late 1980s and early 1990s the band gained some national exposure by opening up for other major artists such as the Replacements, the B-52's, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
