Wielding a diverse instrumentation with broad, deep musical influences allows the band to perform a plethora of energetic, accessible, and danceable music. The Dr. Bacon Live Experience is truly a spectacle to behold, bringing the audience on a musical journey that lulls and spikes in energy, caressing ears with lush beauty and whipping crowds into a tribal romp, shaking bootie sand shedding inhibitions. This manic versatility ensures that no matter what genre of music you identify with most, you will hear something that resonates at a Bacon show. Dr. Bacon started playing together in 2012 on King Street in Boone, NC as a 3 piece busking with acoustic bluegrass, folk, and 90s pop/rock/hip-hop influenced party music. Several lineup changes over the years and are location to Asheville, NC have refined, redirected, electrified, and matured the band’s sound, incorporating funk, rock, soul, psychedelic and world music to their bedrock of Appalachian influences. The blending of several elements of these genres (often within the same song) along with a unique & shifting instrumentation is the real Dr. Bacon flavor, and Bacon goes with everything!
