All Ages
Appalachian Funk Rock Rising Stars Dr. Bacon and Julia

DR. BACON is a 7 Piece touring Appalachian Funk, Grass and Rock & Roll band. Blending incredibly diverse instrumentation with broad, deep musical influences, allows the band to perform a plethora of widely accessible, danceable music.

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 refined and redirected the band’s sound, incorporating funk, rock, soul, 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.

Long bio - On March 1st, 1999, NOAA scientists taking deep ocean recordings with a hydrophone picked up a warbling, cooing noise, which they dubbed 'Julia'. This mother of the deep has not been caught, always eluding mans' watching eyes and clutching hands, but her siren call has found its way into our hearts and thus our music.

JULIA. is a four piece funk powerhouse from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Taking inspiration from funk throughout the eras, they present a sound that is both familiar and unique, with influences in 70’s funk and modern hip hop/soul. They just recently returned from touring all over the East Coast, going as far North as Vermont and as far South as the tip of Florida. They are now in the process of writing and recording their debut album.

JULIA. is made up of Torin “Dr. Funkenstein” Alston, Danlee “Moon Dog” Gildersleeve, Todd “The Creature” Davis, and Sean “Count Slapula” Meehan.
