Physician Executive Leadership (PEL) is a student-founded, student-run and student-driven organization dedicated to teaching the extraclinical foundations of medicine, in order to build the next generation of physician leaders. Since it was founded in 2013 at Sidney Kimmel Medical College, Physician Executive Leadership (PEL) has provided medical students with a platform to learn how the healthcare system works, how we fit into it, and how we can change it.
The Bacon Brothers are anything but a typical rock band. Brothers Michael and Kevin Bacon, each accomplished in their own right, play gritty rock that is unapologetically unique and authentic. Their style can best be described by their first album title, Forosoco, a word describing the blend of folk, rock, soul and country influences. Now, nearly 20 years later, The Bacon Brothers continue to impress audiences and critics with their soulful sound and their latest offering of Americana, 36 Cents.
The Bacon Brothers Band includes Michael Bacon on vocals, guitar and cello; Kevin Bacon on vocals, guitar and percussion; Paul Guzzone on bass guitar and backing vocals; Joe Mennonna on keyboards and accordion; Ira Siegel on lead guitar, mandolin and backing vocals; and Frank Vilardi on drums.
