Con Brio

Driven by powerful vocals and soulful grooves, San Francisco's Con Brio ("with vigor" or "spirit") blends old-school grit with new-school sophistication for a sound that's wholly their own. The addition of Benajmin Andrews' barn-burning guitar playing and Zeik McCarter's hair-raising vocals to the gritty, organ-driven soul of the long-standing original rhythm section (Jonathan Kirchner, Andrew Laubacher, Micah Dubreuil) will keep heads nodding and the dance floor moving until the very last note fades away. Their unique take on high-octane funk and deep-pocket grooves has left the band poised to launch into the stratosphere in 2013.

Not surprisingly, there's a loyal (and constantly growing) legion of fans who turn up to get down at every Con Brio show, and the band doesn't disappoint; each performance is hot, heavy and different from the last. Combining raw talent, a dynamic stage presence and spontaneous style with a professional polish usually seen in much more veteran ensembles, the band is tight and energetic — and when it comes to spirit, they've got it in spades.

BABY & THE LUVIES

Baby and the Luvies: live dance music.

Baby and the Luvies is a soul-inspired dance band from the heart of San Francisco. Born in the latter days of 2011, they're now using the sounds of R&B and soul music to teach the world about lecherous bible salesmen, the illegal reptile trade, intimate prison relations, love, heartbreak -- all the things that shape our modern world.
