The Bacon Brothers W/ Opener Ruston Kelly At City Winery says
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. It's a time preserved in the cover art for The Bacon Brothers' New Year's Day with a preteen Kevin singing alongside a mandolin-strumming Michael. The record, laden with the brothers' trademark gritty rock and a touch of Philly soul, hearkens back to those roots in the City of Brotherly Love when life was less complicated and music filled the air. Michael has gone on to become an Emmy Award winning composer for film and television; most recently scoring Good Fortune - The Story of Morgenthau, as well as a documentary about Texas Governor, Ann Richards for HBO. Kevin, a prolific stage and screen actor, is now starring in the FOX TV drama, "The Following".

"I like risks," notes Kevin, a classic understatement from an artist who's played challenging, unsympathetic roles in everything from The Woodsman to Sleepers to Oliver Stone's JFK. "And there's nothing more risky about being a well known actor than playing in a rock band as well."

For The Bacon Brothers, taking risks has certainly paid off, their infectious music has fans dancing in their seats and singing along at every show; they kick off their 2014 tour in January, and the band's latest album, 36 Cents, is scheduled for a late summer release.

The Bacon Brothers Band: Michael Bacon on vocals, guitar, and cello; Kevin Bacon on vocals, guitar, and percussion; Paul Guzzone on bass guitar and backing vocals; Joe Mennonna on keyboards and accordion; Frank Vilardi on drums; and Ira Siegel on lead guitar, mandolin, and backing vocals.
