The Bacon Brothers are pleased to announce their annual summer tour commencing April 28th in Warrensdale, PA. The 5-piece outfit is rehearsed and raring to go, looking forward to playing to sold-out houses of enthusiastic fans along the way. “Connecting with people through music is a joy!” effused Kevin, with Americana Highways weighing in; "The entire band is precise and honed, you can tell they have been together more than two decades, and that adds to their ability to electrify the audience."

The Bacon Brothers, featuring Michael & Kevin Bacon, started over twenty-five years ago. Refusing to be pigeon-holed, the brothers call their sound Forosoco, which is short for "Folk, Rock, Soul, Country." They've been featured by the BBC, Associated Press, SiriusXM, and Paste Magazine and have appeared on Carpool Karaoke, Ditty TV, and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. In addition, they've served as judges in the American Songwriter Magazine Lyric Competition, participated in the 9/11 Memorial for The Grand Ole Opry's 20th Anniversary September 11th tribute, and performed in Z.Z. Top – America Salutes You and hosted Love Rocks NYC. The Bacon's have released ten albums and one E.P. to date, most recently the 2022 release, Erato.

The Philadelphia Music Alliance has recently honored The Bacon Brothers with a plaque on the Philadelphia Walk of Fame. And, this past November, Michael, Kevin, and SixDegrees.Org joined forces with the Philadelphia youth organization Rock to the Future and recorded a single, "Philly Thing." Proceeds from "Philly Thing" support Rock to the Future. On April 29th, Rock to the Future will host their annual Music For All Ball event at Philadelphia's World Cafe Live with a special performance from The Bacon Brothers.

Ever prolific, Michael and Kevin have been busy writing and recording for a follow-up release to last summer's E.P., Erato. Michael is really looking forward to treating the audience to new music; "Since we're a songwriter band and we add an album’s worth of songs a year, playing new ones first time for audiences is intimidating but gripping. Will I screw up the words, the chords, the instrumental licks? Is this the big one that will break out into the public domain? Of course, after about 50 years of revisiting these same concerns, I get resigned that history will repeat itself every time I launch new songs. Still, no matter how long one chases those elusive muses, every effort is a fresh start, a rebirth, a renewal of what I'm doing here on earth. In Willie's words, "The life I love is makin' music with my friends and I can't wait to get on the road again."
