When not on tour he can often been found playing small club shows around Los Angeles, often at the 'Lucky Strike' with famous friends joining in.

In October 2015 when Alice Cooper was spcial guest on Mötley Crüe's farewell tour, Sobel filled in for Tommy Lee, who was unable to perform due to tendinitis in his wrist. Sobel played drums in both Alice Cooper and Mötley Crüe for 5 consecutive shows while Lee was recovering from his injury.
