Pop-Punk & Pizza #80: Howi Spangler of Ballyhoo! Part 1

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.
