Ballyhoo!
Ballyhoo!
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.
Black Bottom Lighters
Black Bottom Lighters
With over 60 years of combined experience in musical study ranging from reggae, funk, jazz, blues, hip hop, R&B, and house, it is difficult to determine which way the Black Bottom Lighters will go when they get behind their instruments. Two guitars, keyboards, bass, drums, turntablist, and two vocalists form one of the most dynamic sounding groups in the Arizona desert. Built on an acoustic foundation, the BBL's sound is as difficult to describe as it is to dislike. From mellow unplugged personal performances to wild stage acts as well as a crowd that is typically on the cusp of being out of control, you are sure to have a memory or two when you leave one of their shows.

The Black Bottom Lighters began as a four piece group - 3 acoustic guitarists and a vocalist - jamming in a backyard in El Mirage, Arizona. With minimal rehearsal, they began to invade various acoustic open mics across the Valley. While winning over crowds and gaining love for their music, BBL started booking larger shows. With the addition of a percussionist, bassist, and turntablist BBL maintained their acoustic roots with a dynamic sound.

Black Bottom Lighters are currently in the process of recording their debut album and anticipate it's release. The have been featured on Phoenix's KWSS 106.7 " The Morning Infidelity" show and their single "Words To Say" has become a home grown hit. BBL is constantly performing all over the Phoenix area or in the studio rehearsing or recording.
