Formed in 2008 as Split Five, Hey Girl Hey brings to life what most musical groups often forget, why they started playing music to begin with! The answer to that question is simple for these musicians and is the essence of what this group is all about, to have fun! With over 40 years cumulative experience in the music industry, Hey Girl Hey has learned that once you lose touch of what it is you enjoy about making music, you lose the passion, energy, and life in each song. This love for writing, playing, and performing music is what brought these five brothers together and it shows through each and every performance. “You know if HGH is in the house, it’s always a good time. If you don’t have a blast, it’s all on yourself not to enjoy this band.”
HGH knows how to party, sure, but the boys take the business very seriously and know how to apply a strong work ethic to what they do. After releasing 2 EPs and a full length album titled “This Is For Our Friends”, the group has shown that fun, melodic rock is still alive. The release of their most recent single “THR” has gotten great reviews. “I listened to their cd for the first time a month ago… I still haven’t taken it out of my car! Every chorus is so hooky, you just can’t help but sing along!” HGH has performed for thousands of music fans in the Baltimore area at the city’s biggest venues. They have opened for national acts such as EVE 6, Cartel, and Hawthorne Heights. They are also a huge part of a local tribute concert series performing convincing sets from bands such as New Found Glory, Panic at the Disco, and All American Rejects. HGH is Billy England on lead vocals and guitar, Keith Martin on bass, Kurt Speiss on drums, David Jann on keys and guitar, and Adam Znamirowski on guitar. They are often joined at tribute shows by guitarist Sean Ryder.
