The origin of Space Bacon traces back to the depths of Fordham University basement parties on the gritty streets of the Bronx. Since then, Space Bacon has grown from frat fests to the main stage, quickly conquering the title as one of the brightest up-and-coming jam bands in the region.
Space Bacon has performed at The Capitol Theater, Irving Plaza, Brooklyn Bowl, and Bowery Ballroom, among others, performing with artists such as Umphrey’s McGee, Tauk, Spafford, Breaking Biscuits [members of Break Science and The Disco Biscuits], Consider the Source, Aqueous, The Heavy Pets, Horizon Wireless, and many more.
Drawing from an array of inspirations including jam music, electronic production, film scores, and a bit of metal, Space Bacon seeks to challenge conventions and pave the way in the modern era of improvisational music. Sound aside, the group follows in the footsteps of its jam band predecessors, cultivating a rabid cult-like fanbase of Baconators who can be seen following the band at every show. Also in true jam band fashion, nearly all of the band’s live shows are documented and soundboards are released through their Bandcamp and Soundcloud pages.
Space Bacon dropped their studio debut “Nodes” in August of 2016, as well as a series of live albums “Space Beach” and “Snow Bacon”, available on Spotify, iTunes and wherever music is sold online.

“New York City has always been a breeding place for music. One generation to the next; from rock n’ roll to hip hop, and jazz to electronic – NYC is a platform for musical evolution, some artists fail and others succeed. Space Bacon is a band that will most definitely succeed.” – The Passion Collective
