Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers
(They sang us an awesome intro!)
Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers were in town overnight, and really excited to grab a $3 movie. They tried Flying Pie pizza, then watched "Hot Tub Time Machine." They had a great day in Boise, Sam admitted he found $22 in the parking lot. Stephen said, "It's as if we got paid $19 to watch Hot Tub Time Machine!" Sam said he felt guilty about keeping the money, he lurked around in the lobby a while watching people's faces, in case he saw anyone acting like they were missing something.
Their drummer "Boots," is now official video director for the band. Stephen Kellogg said that videos used to be the most embarrassing point of their career, and they couldn't do one more video of the band standing around in a warehouse rocking out. This band has played over 1,000 shows, staying busy even though Stephen has 2 little girls at home and the rest of the band has families. He spoke with great respect of performing with Josh Ritter, and Serena Ryder. Artists and engineers he'd like to perform with in the future, include Sheryl Crow, and producers Don Was, and Tom T-Bone Burnett.
There is some great writing in the song above. "Last time I checked, a family was a whole group of people who give you love when you least expect."
Can I get an "AMEN?!"
Stephen Kellogg's piano/bass player had a really bad experience just 2 weeks ago. The entire left side of his face became paralyzed. He said he still is not able to completely close his left eye. "Goose," had experienced something called "Bell's Palsy." Ironically, we had a contest winner in the studio who had also experienced this. For this man, it was the right side of his face that became paralyzed, and he had to put medicines in his eye and put tape over it. Both of these young men spoke of the horror of this affliction. For the month of May Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers are going to be donating 10% of their online merchandise sales to The Facial Paralysis Institute.
