The Bacon Bits are a unique group of skilled musicians that could have only met in Miami. The leader, John Speck made a name for himself through his 5-year tenure with the Spam Allstars, a Grammy nominated Latin Funk group. Always searching for new opportunities to express himself, it was not long before John found the cast of characters that became the Bacon Bits. Buffalo Brown, Junior Vitale, Mark Beverly, Claudio Cruz and Andrew Atkinson each bring their own contributions and personalities to this group making the sum greater than its parts. The Bacon Bits have been livening up art galleries, corporate functions, bohemian restaurants, private parties and club dates since 2000. A typical set consists of original music that is best described as 'Funky Tropicale'.
