“The Bacon Brothers come to Arlington Heights”

baconsThe Bacon Brothers are anything but a typical rock band. Brothers Michael and Kevin Bacon, each accomplished in their own right, play gritty rock that is unapologetically unique and authentic.  Their style can best be described by their first album title, Forosoco, a word describing the blend of folk, rock, soul and country influences.  Now, nearly 20 years later, The Bacon Brothers continue to impress audiences and critics with their soulful sound and their latest offering of Americana 36 cents.

Older brother Michael, an acclaimed musician and composer, and younger brother Kevin, an award-winning actor, combine to form The Bacon Brothers. Their childhood hometown of Philadelphia is the brothers’ muse for their eclectic blend of rock and soul.  Growing up in the City of Brotherly Love, Michael and Kevin were surrounded by music from an early age.

Michael started as a career musician in the 1960s, first playing gigs at Philadelphia’s Electric Factory with younger brother Kevin tagging along.  He later moved to Nashville to pursue songwriting, and his musical career took off.  Now, an Emmy Award-winning composer, Michael is credited with many original scores for film and television, most recently scoring the documentary “Good Fortune – The Story of Morgenthau.”

 They will play two nights        August 17 & 18, 2016 • 7:30 P.M.
