Throw rock, reggae, punk, and pop into a blender, power it up and you get Ballyhoo!, acclaimed by fans to be “America’s-Favorite-Feel-Good-Party-Band.” It’s hard to argue with the masses, but these road-warriors have tirelessly toured to bring their music to the people. Between the road and the studio, Ballyhoo! has 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 Gregory’s funky and witty bass lines. Scott Vandrey (aka DJ Blaze) rounds it out on the turntables and keys.
BALLYHOO!’s unique sound, hardcore devotion to the road and their fans has pitched them into snowballing success. After concluding the Last Calls and Liabilities tour with respected contemporaries, Pepper, they were honored with being included on the ever-popular 2011 Hollister Holiday Playlist. Ballyhoo! has toured with a myriad of the genre’s biggest names; Authority Zero, The Expendables, 311, and The Supervillains. In Jan 2011, they got a well-deserved nod from LAW Records and were signed to the Hawaii-based independent record label. Yesod Williams of the dub rock music mega-sensation PEPPER and owner of LAW Records says of his newest addition, “Having BALLYHOO! join the LAW Records family is a perfect fit. They are an incredibly talented band with a really catchy style”. 2011 has been a paramount year for Ballyhoo! as they wrap up the year with a few holiday bashes.

Forming in 2010, Tigerweather quickly adopted a sound that was truly
music to the listener’s ear. In seeing a need for a style that was fun and
uplifting, this group of four decided to leave their current projects and join
together to create music that brought hope and joy to their listeners.
By collaborating their life experiences and their musical influences, their
music tells a story that people can relate to. With a heart for people and
a passion for music Tigerweather's message is simple...LOVE.
Over the past two years Tigerweather have put out two EP's entitled
"Cassandra" and "Luke" and have just released a third entitled “Lani” on
the 23rd of November. With a style progressing through each EP and a
sound that continues to grow, Tigerweather does not plan on slowing
down anytime soon. Aside from music, Tigerweather is putting their
message to action in their partnerships with non-profit organizations. In
giving a percentage of all record sales, Tigerweather is helping build
orphanages, schools, and feed and provide clean water to people in need
all around the world. “At the end of the day it’s not about us it’s about
others, and that’s the reason we do what we do.” - Tigerweather
