Con Brio

August Lifts Off


Endless Summer Tour Hits Its Stride

Oh the places you’ll go! See you soon in the Midwest and Vermont!

The Endless Summer Tour Goes Overseas

We’re skipping straight to the end here, but we’re really excited about our first trip overseas and an amazing festival in Canada that wraps up our Endless Summer Tour. Con Brio is going to the Netherlands! Cue wacky European adventures and at least one comical translation misunderstanding. But seriously, we can’t wait!


Endless Summer Tour Lifts Off!

We’re about to kick off our Kiss The Sun: The Endless Summer Tour this Saturday with BottleRock in Napa Valley, CA. We’re on the main stage before (ok, a few acts before) Robert freaking Plant! If this is as close as we ever get to being Led Zeppelin, that’s alright with us. From BottleRock we take off to southern California and Texas and beyond. Come get down with the Con Brio Summer Tour!


Tour De Voodoo

Hello Friends! It’s that time of the year, when bands from all over the country stir from their usual habitats, contract wonderlust, and – dreaming of wide open skies – head towards Austin, Texas.

All that’s to say: Con Brio is going to SXSW!

We’ve got two Texans in our midst (the man on the mic himself and our trumpet player, Brendan Liu), so our first foray into the Lone Star State promises to be an epic homecoming as well.

We’ve got a ton of great showcases lined up, so if you’re in the area come hang out with us! We like friends in weird places.

Valentine’s Day EP Release Party at The Independent

Look, we have a new EP. We want to give it to you, and we want to give it to you right.

So we’re going to set the mood. You. Us. Valentine’s Day. 

Sound good?

Let’s be grown and sexy together. Our last two headlining San Francisco shows have sold-out, so don’t be stood up, put a ring on it now: TICKETS

Also performing are The Seshen, one of the best electro/psychedelic/soul/magic acts to come out of the Bay, ever. We are legit fans of these mad geniuses (see for yourself), and by any standard of estimation it’s going to be a really, really good night from the first note to the last booty shake. 

The Kiss The Sun EP has been a big journey for us. It’s our first real step into the bright and unknown future, and we want to take it with you. Also, we’re going to get into some serious heart-breaking, face-melting, body-healing, sensual, seductive sh*t, so let’s light a fire at The Independent on Valentine’s Day together, dig?


New Single – Give It All

We’re extremely happy to announce the release of our newest single: Give It All. Click on the photo below to give it a listen!

We’re celebrating the release with a show tonight at Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco.


We have a very special announcement: Con Brio is releasing the lead single off our new EP on Nov. 11th, and we are celebrating with a blowout release show at the Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco.

The party will be turned up to eleven. It’s our first headlining slot in our hometown for quite a while, and we intend to take full, funky advantage of it. Guy Fox, one of our favorite bands in SF, is opening. They’ve got all the goods: stellar chops, killer songwriting, angelic vocals. This is the show to come early and stay late.

You can get your tickets for our “Give It All” Single Release Party at Rickshaw Stop, Friday Nov. 7th here: TICKETS

We’re expecting this great venue to sell out, so don’t wait until it’s too late!

“Give It All” as a song encapsulates what we’re trying to do with the new record: it’s soulful, driving, and heartfelt. We’re extremely excited to share it with you. The full EP will be released in early 2015 (it’ll be worth the wait, we promise!).


New Beat Alert!

Ladies and Gentlemen,

We are sublimely pleased to announce the release of our latest single: Never Be The Same. Long a live staple, this song has always been an extra special moment at shows and we’re happy to get it on record.

Check the new song out for yourself over at our Bandcamp store, where it is available for your streaming and/or downloading pleasure. Name your own price, easy as pie.

If you *really* dig the new grooves, it’s totally alright to share your unbridled excitement on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tinder, or whatever the next big thing is. Just saying.

“Never Be The Same” is the newest tune from our forthcoming EP, to be released by Burning House Records this fall.  Each track has been an adventure in recording, reimagining our live sound for the space between your headphones, and we hope you get as many vibes out of it as we tried to put into it. “Never Be The Same” was recorded by Yosh! at Faultline Studios in San Francisco and with additional recording and mixing by our very own resident bassist Jonathan Kirchner.

Marcus Stephens (Jazz Mafia, Marcus Shelby Jazz Orchestra, Secret Sidewalk) is the very very bad man responsible for the epic future-sax solo within, so make sure to buckle your seat belts.

Oh, and keep your eyes and ears open – there’s more where that came from.
