From The Wichita Eagle 6/29/16:
"Wichita’s The Hullaballoo is already creating quite a hullabaloo for being such a new band on the scene. Two recent shows out of town found rave reviews and the Salina Journal described the band as, “songs that explore life, love and the existential journey we all find ourselves on”. The band says of itself, “If we were a doughnut we’d be colorfully frosted, filled with magical cream, and dipped in deep dark chocolate.” Lead singer Shawn Craver spits out poems against a swirling electric guitar and a mysterious stage presence, Ponca Indian Mariah “Ponca Girl” Pappan lays down gothic church organ bass on keyboard, and drummer Ian Ballard invokes the soul of Ringo Starr as they sing about subjects as broad an artist painting a picture to a haunted lover questioning their role in the demise of a relationship. In a scene that thrives on metal, twang, and noise, The Hullaballoo prides itself on crafting songs with Wes Anderson-like stories and worlds the listener can adventure through."
