Huggy Bear

Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers may not be the only band out there whose bread and butter is roots power-pop. And they may not even be the only band who’s made a goofy music video featuring a marching band. (They enlisted UMass’ Marching Minutemen to dance in rows and spell out the band name with a marching formation in the video for the ultra-hooky “Shady Esperanto and the Young Hearts.”) But what they are is highly likable. Kellogg and the Sixers — made up of Kit Karlson and Boots Factor, who switch between instruments, and the most recent addition, guitarist Sam Getz — put no small amount of scrappy, amiable energy into doing what they do; See the “Shady Esperanto” video for instant proof. And they’re a hard-working band. Their self-released efforts led to a major label release, and when that didn’t work out, they trucked on with indies, releasing The Bear on Vanguard last year. And, perhaps most importantly, they’re approaching the 1,000-show mark and still seem to be enjoying themselves.
