"Ballyhoo! is and has been one of my favorite bands for a while now. They put on an amazing live show and have solid catchy songs. From the guys in the band, to the music itself - Ballyhoo! has what it takes to be the next Sublime." - Jim Maschio, 106.3 WJSE, NJ
"It's easy, breezy, super fun music, the kind that embeds itself in your brain for weeks at a time and that demands to be listened to with the windows down, with the wind in your hair and sun splashing your face!" - ARTISTdirect
