Explore the eclectic sounds of The Bacon Brothers live at Batavia Downs on July 26th. With three decades of musical collaboration, Kevin Bacon and Emmy-winning composer Michael Bacon showcase their distinctive blend of folk, rock, soul, and country, known as "forosoco." From headlining gigs in Japan to iconic venues like Carnegie Hall and the Grand Ole Opry, The Bacon Brothers have captivated audiences worldwide.

Their twelfth release, "Ballad Of The Brothers," delves into the musical chemistry of Kevin and Michael, highlighting both their similarities and differences. The album features edgy alt-rock ("Take Off This Tattoo"), Motown-inspired soul ("Put Your Hand Up"), and fingerpicked folk ("Let That Be Enough"). As sharp songwriters and cinematic storytellers, the Bacons embrace diverse approaches, creating a musical journey that transcends genres.

Recording in various locations, including New Jersey, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles, the brothers collaborated with Nashville-area songwriters and added unexpected elements like a fiddle solo on "Take Off This Tattoo." Their willingness to break new ground and experiment with sounds defines The Bacon Brothers' unique musicality. Join us on July 26th for a concert that promises an exploration of musical landscapes, a testament to the Bacons' commitment to diversity and innovation.
