The Routers were an American instrumental musical group in the early 1960s. Formed in 1962 by Mike Gordon, the Routers recordings were primarily session musicians but the actual group with the exception of Gordon was the touring group. The Routers first release in September 1962 was Let's Go (Pony), which reached # 19 on the Billboard charts. Its infectious “clap clap clap-clap-clap clap-clap-clap-clap Let's Go! " chant became a favorite of cheerleaders and crowds worldwide. The recording was instigated by record producer Joe Saraceno and his producing and songwriting partner Mike Gordon.
