An Evening With The Bacon Brothers, Live at Lubbock’s Cactus Theater
Yes, the Kevin Bacon is performing along with his brother Michael at Lubbock's Cactus Theater (1812 Buddy Holly) on Saturday, October 12th.
Here's the info from the concert listing at Eventbrite:
Most people would agree that there’s nothing stronger, more durable and occasionally, even more volatile, than the bond between siblings. Just ask the Bacon Brothers - Michael and Kevin - who make their Lubbock debut at the historic Cactus Theater. 1812 Buddy Holly Ave on Saturday, October 12. Tickets ON SALE NOW!
Fiercely devoted to making music, even from an early age (they cite such influences as the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, Motown, Led Zeppelin, Philly soul, and James Taylor, with mentions from Michael of Pete Seeger, Jimmie Rodgers, Chet Atkins, and the Jim Kweskin Jug Band. The two siblings share a singular body of work that’s found them spending more than 20 years of working the road and paying their dues, resulting in nine albums – Forosoco (1997), Getting There (1999), Can’t Complain (2001), Live: The No Food Jokes Tour(2003), White Knuckles (2005), New Year’s Day (2009), Philadelphia Road (2011) 36 Cents (2014), and the eponymous, The Bacon Brothers (2018) -- spanning rock, soul, folk and Americana.
So while casual observers may be awed by their Hollywood credentials, critics have been quick to note that the brothers - Michael on vocals, guitar and cello and Kevin on vocals, guitar and percussion -- along with the band that’s been with them since the beginning -- Paul Guzzone (bass, backing vocals), Joe Mennonna (keyboards, accordion), Tim Quick (lead guitar, mandolin and backing vocals) and Frank Vilardi (drums) -- eschew any hint of glitz and glamour in favor of an ethic gleaned from the hard lessons come as a result of determination and drive.
Tickets are already mostly sold out, so if you're interested, you should get yours asap from Eventbrite.
