Cue the accordion! The collegiate summer-level Kenosha Kingfish hope to be the Polka Kings of the Midwest when they take to the field as the Kenosha Kickers for one game this season.

The Kenosha Kickers!

The Kenosha Kickers are a fictional polka band from the movie Home Alone, led by John Candy’s Gus Polinski, the “Polka King of the Midwest.” In the movie, when their flight is cancelled because of snow, the band rents a moving truck and drives from Scranton, Pennsylvania, to Milwaukee, which of course is located in the Kingfish’s home state of Wisconsin.

The suite of logos, created by designer Tony Horning, is set in the maroon and yellow that the band used and features a combination of musical instruments and baseball. The primary logo is centered around a bass drum with the seams of a baseball on its skin, with a clarinet crossed with a baseball bat behind it. A secondary mark continues Wisconsin’s longstanding tradition of clever baseball glove logos with an accordion paired with a baseball to form a glove.

The Kingfish will celebrate Home Alone Night July 6, when the weather is likely to be less snowy than Christmas in Chicago.
