Dizzy Balloon is five childhood friends bound by a passion for songwriting. The band’s vision-quest to write the perfect pop song – one that makes you drop everything and go “whoa” – brought the group attention and distinction at a young age. As high school juniors, then performing under the name “Panda”, the band regularly sold out Bottom of the Hill, a legendary breeding ground for San Francisco Bay Area talent. They brought a new energy to classic pop, a vibe audiences still can’t get enough of.
Now college-aged and armed with a new album of smart, buzzing pop, the five-piece is ready to pull you into their quest. You will turn. You will listen. These guys always make their live show as memorable and exciting as possible.
