While indulging on a smorgasbord of quality cuisine and a variety of adult beverages, guests of the Baltimore Beefsteak will enjoy the many familiar sounds of The Bachelor Boys Band.
Comprised of Baltimore-based musicians, the popular cover band will provide the upbeat musical sounds for the evening -- and they certainly won’t be lacking on the energy.
Baltimore native Tim Bracken, who handles lead vocals and guitar, filled us in on what guests can expect to see, hear and feel from The Bachelor Boys.
What are you most excited about playing at the Inaugural Baltimore Beefsteak?
We are excited about all of the music that we play, but we particularly love playing the classic oldies – It’s amazing how so much music that was written, sometimes over 50 years ago, can be just as exciting as it must have been back when it was written.
What type(s) of music do you play? Which artists/songs are you favorites to cover?
We cover virtually all types of popular music -- jazz standards, Motown, 80s and a fair amount of current songs as well.
Which instruments should we expect to see at the Baltimore Beefsteak?
We will be playing with our core lineup, which consists of myself on guitar and vocals, a female vocalist, drums, bass and keyboard.
Aside from the music itself, what is your favorite part about performing in front of a live audience at an event?
The best thing about performing at a live event for us is definitely the crowd. When the dance floor is packed and people are having a blast, it makes the performance so much more fun!
What is it about the Bachelor Boys Band that makes you all such a great fit for event entertainment?
I think it’s our versatility more than anything else. We like to read the room and go with the flow, depending on what the audience is responding to the most.
Your website refers to you all as “high energy.” What does that mean and why is it important?
High energy is incredibly important with an event band -- people want to hear musicians who are really into what they are playing. If the band is simply going through the motions and not challenging themselves, it directly translates to how an audience reacts. A lot of times there might be folks who come up to us and say “that was the best live music I’ve seen at a party.” They might not be able to put their finger on exactly why they feel that way, but I believe this is the reason: We love playing music!
Is there an extra amount of satisfaction knowing that your music will support a worthy cause?
Absolutely! We try to play at as many fundraisers and benefit events as possible. We have met some amazing people as a result, and it’s even better to know that we are helping out with something that is local, too!
Anything else that event guests should prepare to see/hear/feel?
Just get ready to hear a really, really good band. We love what we do, and can’t wait to play!

The elegant, diverse menu at the Inaugural Baltimore Beefsteak will be the byproduct of two distinct culinary minds.
Tom Devine, executive chef at Baltimore staple Linwood’s, and Sue Torres, a celebrity chef and the executive chef at The Fairfield County Hunt Club in Connecticut, will lead the construction of a menu that will appeal to meat-eaters, seafood lovers and vegetarians alike.
Devine, who has been cooking in the Linwood’s kitchen for almost three decades, will lead the culinary team during the Beefsteak event. He will combine some of his favorite creations off of the Linwood’s menu with the Mexican-themed expertise of Torres, who has appeared on “Chopped” (The Food Network) and “Top Chef Masters” (Bravo).
Several weeks out from the event, Devine and Torres have already began sharing recipes and collaborating on food and alcohol pairings – as the Beefsteak will be taking place amid Baltimore Beer Week. The duo plans to meet in person at Linwood’s several weeks before the event to run through aspects of the food preparation and to put the finishing touches on the final menu.
“I cannot wait to see – and eat – what these two phenomenal chefs are going to bring to the table,” said FCS CEO F.T. Burden. “I am confident that this menu, which will be largely sustainable and locally-sourced, will include something for everyone. Nobody is going to leave hungry.”
