We are delighted to announce that The Bacon Brothers, a popular band started by the award-winning actor Kevin Bacon and his brother Michael, an Emmy-winning composer, will perform a rare intimate concert in Greenwich on Saturday, Nov. 9, at our annual fall gala, a fundraiser for The Inner-City Foundation for Charity & Education. Read all about it in the Greenwich Time (click on photo).

Fiercely devoted to making music, the Bacon Brothers 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 spanning rock, soul, folk and Americana.
It’s not that either brother lacks the means to steal the spotlight. Kevin Bacon is an award-winning actor with 80 films and dozens of television and stage credits to his name, resulting in numerous Emmy and Screen Actors Guild nominations. An Emmy-winning composer, older brother Michael initially began making music in their native Philadelphia before moving to Nashville where his songwriting career blossomed by leaps and bounds.
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.
