This week, Jefferson is bringing home the Bacon(s).
Philadelphia’s most famous sibling duo, the Bacon Brothers — Kevin and Michael Bacon, for the uninitiated — will be back in town to perform at a benefit concert to benefit Jefferson Innovation and the Physician Executive Leadership Program.
The benefit concert will take place Friday at 7:30 p.m. at Jefferson University’s Alumni Hall (1010 Locust St.). The Bacon Brothers will perform that evening at 8:45 p.m, with Chuck Buffalo, a group a release describes as a “medical student garage band,” opening.
Tickets for the event are on sale now, and run between $20 for student tickets ant $1,000 for VIP tickets. Regular admission tickets are $35 each.
In addition to musical performances from the Bacon Brothers and Chuck Buffalo, the Jefferson benefit will also feature dancing, a cash bar, and food vendors. Mayor Jim Kenney will also be on hand the night of the event.
The Bacon Brothers, of course, are Philadelphia natives, and are two of Edmund Norwood Bacon’s six children. The pair’s father famously served as the executive director of the Philadelphia Planning Commission beginning in 1949, where he shaped the look and feel of modern Philadelphia with design concepts such as Market East, Penn’s Landing, Society Hill, and more.
Kevin and Michael Bacon previously released their latest album, 36¢, in 2014. Following their Philadelphia date, the Bacon Brothers will play Atlantic City’s Golden Nugget on Saturday.
