Stowe welcomes Kevin Bacon’s Band at Spruce Peak

Posted By: The Ski Channel on April 11, 2011 10:39 am

Stowe Mountain Resort will host The Bacon Brothers live in concert on Saturday, April 30.  Led by Kevin Bacon, his brother and their stellar band mates will perform songs off their numerous albums including the latest release ‘New Years Day.’ The performance will take place at 8:00pm in the new Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center. Tickets are available online at www.sprucepeakarts.org

Long before Kevin Bacon launched his prolific stage and screen career, and before Michael Bacon became known as a go-to composer for film and television, they were just two brothers, born nine years apart, coming of age in Center City Philadelphia. 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. With 2009 marking 14 years of the Bacon Brothers band’s existence, any cynical preconceptions about well-known actors “dabbling” in music now can safely be discarded. The band has gigged relentlessly to build up a following, and ‘New Year’s Day’ represents their sixth LP release.

While still encountering critics due to Kevin’s onscreen notoriety, the band continues to win believers – show by show, album by album. As The New Yorker recently observed: “Hollywood hangs like an albatross 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.” More about The Bacon Brothers at www.baconbros.com
