Bringing home the Bacons

What can fans expect from a Bacon Brothers
concert?
MB: “We have a six-piece band. It’s 90% original songs. We throw in a cover, once in a while, just for our own take. It’s fun doing covers. The orchestrations and arrangements are varied. They go from solo guitar and voice to full, all-out rock ’n’ roll. We have a new song called “Picker” where the part our guitar player put on just blew our minds. I think people are going to go, ‘Wow.’ I play the cello as well as electric and acoustic guitar. Kevin plays percussion, harmonica and guitar. The guitar player (Tim Quick) switches off between electric and acoustic guitar and mandolin. The keyboard player (Joe Mennonna) also plays saxophone and accordion. It’s really all over the place. The songs dictate the arrangements, as opposed to a lot of bands who say, ‘This is our sound. Let’s make the songs fit into the sound.’” Read full interview in WAG Lifestyle
