JR Gregory, Bass
Scott Vandrey (aka DJ Blaze), Turntables/ keyboard


A rock band with punk energy and pop, reggae grooves, Baltimoreís BALLYHOO! are a fun, fan-loving powerhouse. These road dogs have tirelessly toured coast-to-coast taking their music to the people. Between the road and the studio, BALLYHOO! have crafted a sound distinctly their own; fresh, fun, and embodied by the soul of the party lifestyle. Lead singer and guitarist, Howi Spangler, has a reputation for mixing slick lyrics with his smooth but powerful voice. Drummer Donald 'Big D' Spangler lays out the hard-hitting beats, which are underlined by JR Gregoryís funky and witty bass lines. Scott Vandrey (aka DJ Blaze) rounds it out on the turntables and keys.

BALLYHOO!ís unique sound, hardcore devotion to the road and their fans has been the key to their grassroots growth. The band has performed with a myriad of national touring acts; 311, Slightly Stoopid, SOJA, The Dirty Heads, Matisyahu, and more. In 2011, after concluding the Last Calls and Liabilities tour with respected contemporaries, Pepper, they were honored with being included on the ever-popular Hollister Holiday Playlist. They were listed on MTVís Top 100 Bands to Watch and even featured two downloadable songs on the popular video game ROCK BAND. Tour highlights include the 2011 311 Pow Wow Festival, the 2012 311 Caribbean Cruise, Bamboozle 2012 and the entire 2012 Vans Warped Tour.

In 2011 BALLYHOO! signed with LAW Records, an independent label owned by the band Pepper, the guys headed to Sound Lounge Studios in Orlando, FL to record their 4th album 'DAYDREAMS'. It was released on Sept 6th, 2011 and quickly broke the Top 10 Billboard Heat Seekers Chart. The band calls it their 'heaviest album' so far. 'There were only a handful of songs at first. We locked ourselves down for 3 weeks and started jamming. We quickly realized that we were rocking out more than we had before', says front man Howi Spangler.

'We named it DAYDREAMS because the songs made us feel good inside', Howi explains, 'Itís saying that music can take you to a better place, no matter what youíre going through.' 'Evil Penguin' opens the album with a beautiful piano intro and then bursts into a chaotic ska/punk frenzy. 'Last Night' tells the story of a guy whoís tired of the bar scene and looking for the right woman. Followed up by the loverís rock sound of 'Diamonds', a song about that girl thatís been there the whole time and you finally open your eyes and see her in front of you. The album ends on with a piano-driven ballad, 'Ricochet', a song about keeping your head up in dark times. 'There are a lot of emotions throughout the record, but I think the overall theme is that we all go through the same things and one day weíll get what weíve been working for so long', says Howi.

The bandís latest single 'Last Night' is currently in rotation at various alternative radio stations including WHFS Baltimore, WRFF Philadelphia, KUKQ Phoenix, Star 101.9 Honolulu, and SiriusXM/Faction, as well as various specialty shows around the country. Yesod Williams, owner of the bandís label LAW Records says of his newest addition, 'Having BALLYHOO! join the LAW family is a perfect fit. They are an incredibly talented band with a really catchy style'.
