DR. BACON is a 6 Piece touring Appalachian Funk, Grass and Rock & Roll band. 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 booties and 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 a relocation 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!
Dr. Bacon is: Jesse Talbott- Lead Vocals & Guitar, Trombone Myles Dunder- Vocals, Saxophones, Guitars, Etc. Michael Crawford-
Harmonica, Keys & Synth Ben New- Drums, Percussion, Vocals Matt Gornto- Bass Rory Joseph- Lead Guitar & Vocals
Live shows will be looking a little different in order to do our part with social distancing while still filling the space we have available efficiently. The garage door at the rear of our stage will remain open during all performances so that you can enjoy the show from inside our venue space OR in our outdoor courtyard. Tickets will be sold as table reservations. There are tables for groups of 2,3,4,6, and 8 people. You must purchase the entire table in order to make a table reservation. We do not issue physical tickets; however, your name will be on a guest list when you arrive for the show. If you are arriving at a different time than the rest of your party be sure they know the last name that you made the table reservation under. You can use the graphic below to see the layout of our space and the description of different seating options. Make a note of which tables would suit your needs and then click the "tickets" button above the artist bio to proceed with your purchase. We look forward to having you! Please remember masks are required for entry.
