Stephen Kellogg & the Sixers

Relentless road warriors Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers joined us today perform from their new The Bear. The trio brought in some special guests who lent their time and talents to the creation of The Bear: Canadian stand out Serena Ryder on "See Yourself", Josh Ritter on "All Part of the Show", label-mates The Alternate Routes and Whiskeytown alumnus Mike Daly.

Stephen Kellogg formed The Sixers in Northampton, MA in 2003.  They went on to release four records including 2007’s Glassjaw Boxer, which was named one of the “Top Five Records of the Year” by USA Today critic Brian Mansfield.

With the help of the University of Massachusetts marching band, UMass alums Stephen Kellogg and The Sixers, recently shot the music video for the hit-single, “Shady Esperanto and the Young Hearts.”  The idea for the video originated after a conversation about Sixer Kit “Goose” Karlson’s years as a member of the marching band.

“UMass is still very much a hometown for us. We wanted to do something fun and get the community involved as well,” Kellogg said.
The 400-person marching band not only learned how to play “Shady,” but was also taught a special dance choreographed by Stephen and Brian “Boots” Factor.
