Bacon Brothers' set to backdrop of Harleys, fireworks

CANTON, Ohio (AP) - Movie star Kevin Bacon and his brother, Michael, usually have a cello to back their close harmonies in their band, The Bacon Brothers (pictured, right).
But in a fenced-in bar parking lot Saturday night in Jackson Township outside Canton, they had some decidedly louder accompaniment.
As Michael sang a quiet number, motorcycles roared by. Then the crowd of a few thousand people looked away from the stage as fireworks began for the nearby Balloon Classic Invitational.
"The quiet songs, we usually like to have Harleys or fireworks," Kevin quipped.
The show ended with Bacon's unofficial theme song, "Footloose."
"This is a great town, Canton," he said. "How come we've never played here before?"
