Bacon Brothers to Perform at 28th Annual Benefit Gala
November 9, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
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, November 9 at a fundraiser for Fairfield County’s Inner-City Foundation for Charity & Education.
The event, the 28th annual fall gala to benefit The Inner-City Foundation, will be held at the Greenwich Hyatt Regency in Old Greenwich, and is the charity’s largest fundraiser of the year. The Inner-City Foundation provides support to local Fairfield County programs and organizations that provide not only help but hope to the neediest residents of Fairfield County, including education, food, shelter, help for addiction, domestic violence and much more.
Fiercely devoted to making music, Kevin and Michael Bacon 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. 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. 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 Guzzle (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.
