Con Brio (and Mama’s Soup)
Con Brio: 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.
By 2015, when the band self-produced their debut EP, Kiss the Sun, Con Brio had already become a West Coast institution on the strength of their magnetic live show, with McCarter’s swiveling hips, splits and backflips earning him frequent comparisons to a young Michael Jackson or James Brown.
Mama’s Soup: This Bay Area Five Piece is brewed with Funk, R&B, Jazz and Soul. Mama’s Soup features velvety vocals backed by silky smooth bass, ambient synthesizer, melodic guitar and a crispy tight backbeat. They draw for musical inspirations like Snarky Puppy, Anderson Paak, Flying Lotus, Jill Scott and Hiatus Kaiyote. From love songs to hard-hitting protest anthems, their live shows will satisfy any musical diet.
