The Bacon Brothers
Aug 4 , 2014 · McGLOHON THEATER at Spirit Square
Prices Begin at $34.50
with special guest Cindy Alexander
The Bacon Brothers, Michael and Kevin, grew up in Philadelphia with their four sisters in a home filled with music. By the late 1960s, Michael, already a professional musician, would gig with his band at the city's famed Electric Factory with a young Kevin tagging along when he could. Kevin, a prolific stage and screen actor, is now starring in the FOX TV drama, "The Following." But there's something about singing with your sibling. In 1995, the two formed a band, now, 18 years later, any cynical preconceptions about well-known actors "dabbling" in music can safely be discarded. As The New Yorker observed: "Hollywood hangs like an albatros around the neck of any movie star turned musician, but this duo shakes off the burden of fame with sharply executed rock that has a blue-collar, rootsy edge." The band has gigged relentlessly to build up a following and have released seven albums and a live concert DVD. This includes their 2011 European compilation release, Philadelphia Road: The Best of The Bacon Brothers, which is now available in the US on Soulfood. The band continues to win believers - show by show, album by album. This summer The Bacons will release their 7th album titled "36 Cents."
