#144: Hangtime & Dental Records
Hey! I hope the world has been treating you well. I guess you could say today’s episode is a double header. We have, Warren Gregson, who is the vocalist and guitarist of melodic punk band, Hangtime, and also, John Martin, from Dental Records. Gregson also happens to be c0-owner of Dental Records. I’m very grateful to both Warren and John because they sponsored quite a few episodes of Pop-Punk & Pizza in December and January. It was great sitting down with both of them and getting to know them a little!
When I think of bands who have successfully blended multiple styles of music into their songs, Ballyhoo!, is one of the first bands that come to my mind. In my opinion, Ballyhoo, is the perfect mix of punk, pop punk, ska, and reggae. It was an honor to have an in depth conversation with their frontman, Howi Spangler, on this episode of Pop-Punk & Pizza! Part 1 of Part 2.
