    Infinity Hall Live [#205H] The Bacon Brothers The Bacon Brothers may be the best kept secret of the music industry. Michael Bacon is an accomplished cellist and guitarist, as well as an award-winning composer for both film and television. Kevin Bacon - one of the most prolific screen actors of his generation and a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award winner - is also a talented singer and songwriter. The duo's eclectic sound combines their unique talents in a way that keeps their fans coming back for more year after year. As Kevin explains it, "When we were just starting out, people would say 'what kind of music do you play?' And the answer was 'well, it's folk/rock/soul/country.' We shortened it to 'forosoco' and then titled our first album Forosoco." Michael then chimes in sarcastically, "It was a great idea. We named our first album Forosoco and nobody could pronounce it. Wasn't probably the best marketing tool." Born into a household alive with arts and music, Kevin and Michael have played music together since they were boys, but only formed their band in 1994 for a charity event in their hometown of Philadelphia. The collaboration worked so well, the brothers hit the road whenever their busy schedules would allow. Soon they produced a collection of finely tuned albums with crowd-pleasing appeal, including Forosoco in 1997, Getting There in 1999, 2001's Can't Complain, as well as some live and 'best of' compilations. duration 56:30   STEREO TVPG
