A Philly Special: Christmas Special Deluxe Bundle
The Gang makes a record, again! This year is going to be even better! In this special deluxe bundle, you'll get:
A limited edition, 2 LP album set of both last year's and this year's records, on gold vinyl, in a gatefold, two-pocket album jacket! The Old Style® Tip-on Gatefold Jacket center opens up to special artwork. The Jason Kelce 7-Inch Record, featuring "Santa's Night" (written by Jason) and "Dominick the Donkey".
A signature Philly Special Christmas puzzle of the interior of the gatefold vinyl artwork. This 500-piece puzzle is mounted on a premium puzzle board. You will feel the weight and quality in every piece. Each piece is fully interlocking and has a beautiful "snap" as you assemble the puzzle. Puzzle finished size is 24"x18". Bonus puzzle poster included.
This Year's Record Includes All New Songs!
The Philly Special Christmas team was overwhelmed by the support we received last year. Together, with help from the fans, last year's record raised $1.25 million for local Philadelphia charities. This year promises to be even bigger!
The players: Jason Kelce, Lane Johnson and Jordan Mailata spent their well-earned summer in the studio, once more with producer Charlie Hall (of The War on Drugs) to record 11 new songs - including one penned by Jason Kelce, himself!
Executively produced by Connor Barwin (the former Eagles linebacker and current executive whose Make The World Better concerts have been headlined by Philly acts like Mount Joy, Kurt Vile & more) and released on Barwin & Kelce's record label VERA Y, it features even more local artists - like Philadelphia icon Patti LaBelle, Amos Lee, The Hooters’ Eric Bazilian and Rob Hyman, DMHotep, Kevin Hanson, Luke Carlos O’Reilly, Waxahatchee, members of The War on Drugs, Dr. Dog, Mewithoutyou and The Silver Ages Choir.
“It never occurred to me that this gang would make another record and yet it never occurred to me that we WOULDN’T make another record,” Hall said.
We invite you to support and enjoy A PHILLY SPECIAL CHRISTMAS SPECIAL - with pre-orders starting on Nov. 3, 2023.
