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. Dr.
Bacon started playing together in 2012 on King Street in Boone as a 3 piece
busking with acoustic bluegrass, folk, and 90s pop/rock/hip-hop influenced
music. Several lineup changes over the years and a move to Asheville have

psychedelic and world music to Appalachian influences. The blending of
several elements of these genres (often within the same song) along with
unique instrumentation is the real Bacon flavor.
