Dr. Bacon is a genre defying “Appalachian Funk-Rock” band from Asheville, NC. We play an infectiously danceable blend of funk, soul, jazz, rock, blues, folk, hip-hop and more. We feature as diverse instrumentation as our influencing styles including: guitars, resonator, harmonica, bass, tenor saxophone, baritone saxophone drums, trombone, kazoo and more. Dr. Bacon is sure to get you moving and grooving.
Structured largely from improvisational influences, the band found their unique sound by allowing each member to artistically express their individual style(s). “Everyone said you couldn’t combine quirky classical stylings with funky drums and fiddles and still end up with an audience friendly genre”, says lead guitar and vocalist Tony Tyler, “…but it’s that unexpected combination that makes people quickly take notice and groove along with Come Back Alice.”
Founded towards the end of 2011, the CBA train is quickly picking up steam. With a passion for live performance, the band comes equipped with a full production of lights, sound, and a promise to never play the same show twice!!
With a second full length album to be released in Fall 2016, a website at www.comebackalice.com, and major interest from some of the music industries heavy hitters, these guys and gal from ST. Petersburg are breaking new ground…and really shaking things up!
