Review: The Bacon Brothers Band Rocks City Winery

Wonderful musicianship, plenty of charisma and a lengthy and diverse set list ensured that the Bacon Brothers Band's performance at the City Winery in New York City on Tuesday was a special one. If you’ve never seen the band before, this was a great introduction to their work. If you were a hardcore fan, it was a fun night of stories, nostalgia and top-notch musical performances.

Although the band has six members, it naturally all starts with Kevin and Michael Bacon, the brother duo known for their accomplishments in front of the camera and behind it. While there are plenty of actors who think they can rock, these siblings are far from all hype. Playing the harmonica, cello, ukulele and guitar as well as providing lead vocals, Michael and Kevin are true musicians that unlike the fodder on pop radio today, tell stories. From the emptying of the nest to their wives and children, Michael and Kevin share a piece of themselves on stage that shows. Read full review.
