You can even bring your kids! Kids under 12 are free to the BBQ!
We also have a block of rooms at the Westin at a special SK Family rate. These will only be available until June 3rd so make sure to book yours soon!

Introducing the first installment of KELLOGGTUNES - #SKINTHEUK
In the words of SK, "Ever since I was young I always dreamt of world tours, or at least European tours. Three years ago I started making trips across the pond. Some of these are artists who shared that journey with me, others (like the Stones), are the artists that fed that desire in the first place."
“Galaxy’ is a song about being tangled up with someone you love. A weel-worn idea to be sure, but when you find your one person (which for me happened in 1993 when I was 15 years old), it’s such a gift to lose yourself in that embrace. Now she’s the mother of our four children, and those times for us can only be referred to as what my own mother calls treasured moments.'”The singer’s catalog is full of love songs for his wife and their girls. A sample from the liner notes of South, West, North, East reiterates his passionate devotion and gratitude; “Kirsten, if there is one single decision that has sent my life on a positive trajectory, it was the decision to put as much effort as possible into making you my girl. It feels as though I could have met you at any age and in any place and I would have known then and there that I loved you. Because you loved me back, everything works.”
"Kellogg was part of a class of musicians, athletes, and artists from Fairfield-former professional tennis player James Blake and guitar virtuoso John Mayer among them-who have all gone on to achieve success globally"- Fairfield Magazine
Folks, I grew up in a town full of superstars. Literally. I walked the school halls with some freakishly talented people, including but not limited to the guitar great and tennis stars mentioned above. Also attending classes with me were NHL Rookie of the Year (Chris Drury), insanely funny actor (Justin Long) and the "Geico Guy" (Mike McGlone), I mean it's something. I'm not name dropping, I promise. I'm proud of these people all of whom were good people in the time that I knew them. And for every famous person who is exceptional, there are a hundred non-famous people who live where I grew up and make an impact with their lives. I think of my junior high dean of students, Jeff McHugh. Not only was he the first guy to suggest I try out for a play and join a band with his son; and not only did he play the banjo on my recent single "Last Man Standing", but the guy has literally improved thousands of lives as a steadfast, humorous and brilliant educator.
I guess what I am trying to say is that it means a great deal to me that the town magazine where I grew up picked me to talk about this month. That they took the time to do a feature about my new record "South, West, North, East" is really moving to me.
Stephen is performing from under the covers for #Bedstock, the world’s first in-bed music festival, to raise awareness and funds for MyMusicRx, a program of the Children’s Cancer Association. MyMusicRx delivers the healing power of music to kids and teens facing cancer and other serious illnesses.
