American alternative rock/ reggae fusion band, Ballyhoo! Is from Aberdeen, Maryland and consists of Howi and Donal Spangler, Scott Vandry and Nick Lucera.
Ballyhoo! was first formed in 1995 by guitarist and vocalist Howi Spangler, drummer Donal Spangler, and bassist Josh Farley. Despite having been together since the mid 90s, the band didn’t release any material until 2000 with their EP, “365- Day Weekend” followed by “The Green” EP in 2004. Additionally they had added keyboardist Scott Vandry and had J.R Gregory replace as bassist. Their first full-length album was released in 2006, and just like the previous two albums had been self- released.
The band went on to sign a deal with LAW Records and released “Daydream” in September 2011. “Last Night,” a single from “Daydream” got airplay through various alternative radio stations such as WHFS Baltimore, WRFF Philadelphia, KUKQ Phoenix, Star 101.9 Honolulu, and SiriusXM/Faction, as well as various specialty shows around the country. 2011 also saw Ballyhoo! touring and making appearance at a number of festivals such as the 311 Pow Wow Festival. They also took part of the Vans Warped Tour in 2012 as well as The Bamboozle (also in 2012).
Ballyhoo then started their own label called Right Coast Records and released their fifth album, “Pineapple Grenade” in 2013. Their music has appeared in numerous surf/skate videos and compilation albums including “Forever Free: A Tribute to Sublime.” In 2014 Ballyhoo! released “The Cool Down: Vol 1.”
Boston, MA reggae band “The Elovaters” have been garnering fans throughout the country since 2014. Their non-stop tour schedule is a testament to their rising popularity in the American Reggae Scene. They have shared the stage with Ziggy Marley, Stick Figure, The Movement, John Browns Body, Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad and more. Their debut album was recorded at the legendary Lion and Fox Studios in Washington D.C. in 2017. It was engineered by Mike Caplan and reached #2 on the ITunes reggae chart and #9 on the Billboard Reggae Chart In it’s first week.
