It began humbly enough 20 years ago as a birthday party for Local 518 concert promoter Greg Bell. Now two decades later, Bell is still throwing his own birthday bash, and Bellstock XX blossomed into one of Nippertown’s most beloved festivals, featuring four days of non-stop music in East Jewett.
The bash featured nearly two dozen bands, ranging from the ukulele-strumming folk-pop of Olivia Quillio to the fiery funk-jazz of the Chronicles.
Happy 60th birthday, Greg Bell!
