Formed in 2013, Con Brio is the offspring of seven musicians with diverse backgrounds but a shared love for the vibrant Bay Area funk and psychedelic-soul sound pioneered by groups like Sly & the Family Stone.

Con Brio had already become a West Coast institution on the strength of their magnetic live show, with Zeik McCarter’s swiveling hips, splits and backflips earning him frequent comparisons to a young Michael Jackson or James Brown.

In the second half of 2016, Con Brio embarked on an ambitious international touring schedule, including stops at the lion’s share of major American music festivals (Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Summerfest and San Francisco’s own Outside Lands); Fuji Rock, Japan’s largest annual music event; Montreal Jazz Fest, the North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam, the Netherlands; London; Paris; with many more international dates to come throughout the year.

On April 1st Con Brio will take the stage in support of Blue Bear School of Music, another West Coast institution. Recently named a San Francisco Legacy Business, Blue Bear has forged the way in helping people learn to play the music they love. This event will help to grow Blue Bear’s programs, to provide superior quality and affordable music education programs to aspiring musicians of all ages, all skill levels and all economic backgrounds.

Blue Bear School of Music is a non-profit 501(c)(3) whose mission goes beyond just learning to play, it’s about community, support, and the benefits of a music education. Your support will go a long way and the night will surely aim to inspire.

To quote Zeik McCarter : “We don’t want to walk, we don’t want to drive,” he says with a laugh. “We want to fly. We want to levitate.”
