Hullabaloo

Hullabaloo is Steve Denyes and Brendan Kremer, friends since kindergarten.

Steve plays guitar, sings and writes goofy songs. Brendan plays drums, sings and smiles.

Over the course of ten years Hullabaloo has won twelve national awards, received rave reviews from People, Parenting, Parents, Cookie and Parent & Child Magazines and landed on three national “Top 10 Best Children’s Music” lists.

Hullabaloo plays about 300 shows a year in venues ranging from backyard parties to fancier stages like the Austin City Limits Festival, World Café Live, LEGOLAND, the Hard Rock Cafe and their own Hullabaloo Family Music Festival. At last count, they’d sold just over 30,000 CDs.

But the truth is, none of these facts and figures matter a bit to kid that just wants to sing and dance. What really matters is that Hullabaloo is a foot-stomping, wing-flapping celebration of song that honors and entertains kids and families.

Steve Denyes - Guitar, Vocals

Steve plays guitar, sings and always tries to remember to say "thank you" and "please." Before forming Hullabaloo, he was a K-6 music teacher in the public school system. When he's not singing and stomping his feet, he surfs a lot and spends time with his wife and their dog, Desi.

Brendan Kremer - Cajon, Vocals

Brendan plays a wooden percussion instrument called a cajon and sings. He also has impeccable manners. Before forming Hullabaloo, Brendan was a pirate. Or at least that's what we think. . .he did have a parrot when he was a kid.
