Bacon Brothers to Open St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights Concerts, 6/28
Sizzle. Sizzle. Sizzle. The Bacon Brothers cut loose as they kick off the St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights summer series on June 28. The band's charismatic front men - actor Kevin (The Following, Apollo 13, Mystic River, Footloose...) and Emmy award-winning composer Michael - put on a show that seamlessly blends hard-charging tunes with mellow, country-folk ballads. Concert starts at 7 p.m. (gates open at 5:30 p.m.) at Deer Valley Resort's Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater. Lawn tickets are available (reserved seating is sold out).
The sibling duo first ventured into the rock star realm for a benefit concert in 1994. Since then, they have regularly ditched their "day jobs" to perform sold out shows from New York to Los Angeles. The Bacon Brothers have opened for The Band, performed alongside the likes of Shania Twain and Wyclef Jean and released eight CDs.
Both Philadelphia-bred brothers sing, write songs and play the guitar. Kevin adds harmonica and percussion to the mix and Michael (an acclaimed composer for film and television) shows off his classical training on the cello. The tunes they compose have garnered praise and fans. As Rolling Stone puts it, "Kevin and his brother Michael can actually write and play some intelligent and cathartic songs. Really!"
