Kevin Bacon and his brother Michael have a rock band. Which is none too surprising considering the musical passions of other Hollywood stars like Gwyneth Paltrow, Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe, and Keanu Reeves. What may come as a shock is that they’re pretty good. “We’ve been chipping away at that awareness, chipping away at the fact that most people think we’re gonna suck,” actor Kevin Bacon says on their official website.

And now The Bacon Brothers will be performing at the Global Green Expo this coming weekend at Liberty State Park in Jersey City. Also on hand will be Jeff Corwin, Deidre Imus, Ted Danson, and Ed Begley Jr. The expo — like many happening this week — will feature the latest “eco-friendly products, programs, services, and information from hundreds of exhibitors and nonprofit organizations.”

But back to Kevin — a big time supporter of environmental initiatives and charity campaigns — his SixDegrees.org foundation has been a great success, raising over $2 million so far. Last year, he also actively participated in the Live Earth concerts and pushed hard for NYC’s High Line initiative.

    I’ve seen Russell Crowe, (TOFOG), and Billy Bob Thornton in concert and thought they were both really good! I’m hoping that The Band From TV will do a tour soon too! I’d love to see The Bacon Brothers!

    I’m not sure why famous actors with music are automatically assumed to suck while the reverse situation of pop stars turned actors get the free pass. The majority of actors with bands were doing music long before they became famous in acting.
