Ballyhoo!
Ballyhoo!
A rock band with punk energy and pop reggae grooves, Baltimore's 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 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. 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 MTV's Top 100 Bands to Watch and even featured 2 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, & the entire 2012 Vans Warped Tour.



The band's last single "Last Night" saw rotation at various alternative radio stations including WHFS Baltimore, WRFF Philadelphia, KUKQ Phoenix, Star 101.9 Honolulu, & SiriusXM/Faction, as well as various specialty shows around the country. The band's new single "Walk Away" is next and poised to open even more doors at radio with it's melodic chorus and sing along vibe. Yesod Williams, owner of the band's 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".
The Holdup
The Holdup
The Holdup is a California based Reggae band with heavy influences in the genres of Hip Hop and Pop. The group has released five full-length albums to date, all of which were written and produced by frontman Mike Garmany. Since releasing their debut album, Stay Gold, the band has garnered a great deal of commercial success and moved on to sell tens of thousands of records nationwide. Stay Gold debuted at #1 on the iTunes Reggae charts and the single "Good Times" was on rotation at a number of college radio programs and the coveted mainstream San Francisco station, Live 105. Every album from The Holdup since then has found the band reaching a new milestone. From 2010's Confidence topping the iTunes Reggae chart and leading the band to receiving iTunes' Best New Reggae Artist of 2010 award, to 2011's Still Gold peaking at #2 on Billboard's reggae chart. Their heavy urban appeal has even led to features on Mac Miller's "MostDope" blog and 2 Chainz' "Most Expensivest Shit" video series presented by GQ. When the band first began performing their original songs at local venues around San Jose, a fan base quickly developed for their catchy multi-genre delivery. The success of their live show and the growing popularity around album sales and radio play found them performing and touring with a number of amazing artists. From Reggae mainstays like Collie Buddz and Steel Pulse, to the more mainstream side of things with Rebelution, Dirty Heads and Iration. They've even shared stages with the likes of 2 Chainz and Rae Sremmurd.

The Holdup's new album is set to release in the Fall of 2016 and will be followed by an extensive touring schedule that includes a headline album tour and runs with Collie Buddz and The Movement.
