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 Spangler lays out the hard-hitting beats. Scott Vandrey layers in the finishing touches to the band’s signature sound on keys. The band recently welcomed Nick Lucera as their new bass player. Ballyhoo! just released their newest EP, “The Cool Down: Vol 1.” Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Mike Stebe in Orlando, FL, the EP features three new tracks, as well as three variations on older ones.
