Bringing sunny and carefree California to your festival: Con Brio! This is classic funk and soul: think Sly & the Family Stone and James Brown, also incorporating the innovative sounds of for example Prince and D'Angelo. Front man Ezekiel 'Ziek' McCarter has a very powerful voice and excellent showmanship, with the horn section, tight rhythm section and, of course, a Hammond organ completing the party. By the way: Con Brio is an Italian musical definition indicating that a piece or excerpt should be performed in a lively manner. This would translate into English as 'with spirit'. And that they have! This band from San Francisco is creating one hell of a party, wherever they go.
