Kevin – First off I just want to let you guys know this will be the 5th time I have seen you play live and thanks for taking the time to sit down and talk to me today.
Ballyhoo – No problem, we love playing in Florida and meeting our fans.
Kevin – with as much as you guys are on tour, what keeps the band going night after night.
Ballyhoo – The love of it. The fans reaction when we are on stage. There is nothing like it. Everything else sucks, we’ll most of everything else (laugh).
Kevin – I’m sure the road time gets rough. If you could tour with any band, who would you like to tour with.
Ballyhoo – Slayer (laughing)
Kevin – Change your name to Suicidal Tendencies and you’re on!
Ballyhoo – Yeah, we’d fit right in. Actually we would love to tour with Green Day, Foo Fighters, or Incubus.
Kevin – Awesome! This next question is for each of you. What are your favorite songs to play live?
Ballyhoo – She Wants To Destroy Me (Howie), Evil Penguin (Nick), Meat Head (Scott), I don’t remember the real name of the song, Things We Don’t Mean. Yeah, that’s the name (Donald).
Kevin – Cool. Okay guys, I have a question from one of your fan’s from the Ballyhooligans! The Florida Chapter. It’s a Ballyhoo fan page on Facebook. You have several songs about some pretty messed up relationships. Are these songs about one girl?
Ballyhoo – Um, yeah pretty much the same girl. I usually try to write songs about personal experiences as well as adding some humor to certain situations. I think most guys can relate to a crazy girl relationship.
Kevin – So you guys just put out “The Cool Down” EP. What made you decide to do an EP?
Ballyhoo – It was something we could put out for our fans between albums. We had some songs laying around and decided to put them out there. We spent about 4 days on it. It was a no pressure  deal that we think turned out nice.
Kevin – I think it turned out great! On that note I’m going to close out this interview with one last question. When can we expect a full length album from you?
Ballyhoo – We are hoping to start putting something together around the spring and have it done by late summer. It really depends on how our schedule goes.
Kevin – Well thanks again for taking the time to sit down with me this evening. You guys have been awesome!
