      Bio

      BALLYHOO! is undeniably turning the world of music upside down and sideways as they blur the
      lines between rock, reggae, punk and pop to craft their own hybrid of music that can’t be held
      down to one definitive genre. This signature sound of theirs is one they have been perfecting
      since their high school days in Aberdeen, Maryland - the sweet melodic voice of lead singer
      and guitarist Howi Spangler; the hard hitting beats set forth by brother and drummer Donald
      “Big D” Spangler; the skillfully added funk of bassist JR “Mista J” Gregory and Scott Vandrey
      (aka DJ Blaze) rounds it out on the turntables and keys.



      BALLYHOO!’s unique sound, hardcore devotion to the road and to their fans, partnered with
      their irresistible “life of the party” approach have pitched them into the position of America’s
      favorite feel good party band. They didn’t get here by accident; rather, they had been single-
      handedly growing their empire through unparalleled hard work and dedication until Jan 2011,
      when they got a well-deserved nod from LAW Records and were signed to the Hawaii-based
      independent record label. PEPPER, the dub rock music mega-sensation and owner of
      LAW Records, says of their newest addition, “Having Ballyhoo! join the LAW Records
      family is a perfect fit. They are an incredibly talented band with a really catchy style”.
      Now, with the backing of LAW, 2011 promises to be a paramount year on BALLYHOO!’s
      trajectory destined for greatness!



      BALLYHOO! has toured the country with some of the biggest and most respected names in the
      reggae rock genre – 311, AUTHORITY ZERO, PEPPER, THE SUPERVILLAINS. “It’s always intimidating when
      playing for another band’s crowd, you never know how they’re gonna react,” explains front
      man Howi, “but then you see that they’re enjoying it and the worry goes away. You’re free to
      rock at that point!”. BALLYHOO! will start their tour of the southeast with fellow label mates
      IRATION in February 2011. Their rigorous, nonstop nationwide touring schedule has certainly
      been the catalyst for the exponential growth in their fan base. BALLYHOO! fans are some of
      the most loyal and enthusiastic fans out there and their love for the band runs deep.



      In 2006, BALLYHOO! released Do It For The Money! which “opened a lot of doors for us and
      spread like wildfire in the underground” says Howi. Their follow up album, Cheers!, was
      released in May of 2009 and was an opportunity to work with 311’s Scotch Ralston as the
      producer. In addition, BALLYHOO!’s stellar rendition of “40 Oz. To Freedom” is featured on the
      compilation album, Forever Free: A Tribute to Sublime, and helped stimulate a surge in their
      popularity. Fans can also hear their songs on the Rock Band Network and in feature films.



      BALLYHOO! currently has a single out on iTunes (“The Front Porch”) and when they aren’t on the
      road, they are in the studio, finishing their new album, which is slated for release on LAW
      Records in the summer of 2011.
