Actors on Tour

While scanning events at we noticed that several actors are flaunting their musical abilities and touring across the United States. Perhaps the most known as a musical performer is Kevin Bacon, who with brother Michael, record as The Bacon Brothers. Michael Bacon began his musical career when Kevin was still a teen and is an acclaimed composer of musical scores and musician. Over the years, the two collaborated together and eventually the duo performed onstage together in 1994. Soon after their debut CD, Forosoco, was released, followed by several recordings: Getting There, Can't Complain, and White Knuckles. Their current Tour is in support of New Years Day, available at any moment. We really like the reggae infused Bunch of Words available from their myspace page.

We had heard rumors that Kevin Costner dabbled in music and it was confirmed with the release of Untold Truths. Kevin Costner & Modern West is supporting this CD by taking their Americana sound through Nashville, the Baltimore\Washington D.C. area, and New York City. Samples of the CD are available on their myspace page. Let us know what you think. Modern West includes several accomplished musicians John Coinman, Blair Forward, Teddy Morgan, Larry Cobb, Park Chisholm, and Bobby Yang.

The biggest surprise was seeing Bryan Greenberg on tour. We had no idea, that the star of
October Road was a musician, but he released his debut album, Waiting For Now, last year. He's spending the remainder of 2008 playing shows with Graham Colton, Michael Tolcher, and Tim Brantley. We've listened to Colton and Tolcher before and they can carry their weight. It will be nice to see if Greenberg can perform at that level. See you at Jammin' Java.
