Con Brio is the modern musical excellence where funk meets soul. These Bay Area locals have developed not only a name for themselves in music but a name for music in the Bay Area. After a rigorous tour over the past year, hitting all the biggest venues and festivals throughout the world, Con Brio will find themselves headlining at the UC Theatre in Berkeley on October 14th, 2016 with Kev Choice and Kuchaw. Enter to win a pair of tickets to this show with DoTheBay HERE!

At the young age of 24, frontman Ziek McCarter rallies the masses with his desirably alluring vocals and Con Briounbelievably talented moves. His musical story began when he, officially, moved from Texas to San Francisco at just 18 years old. Surrounded by the enchantment that is of the Fillmore District, McCarter quickly found his way into the music scene ever so naturally due to his profound talent and stage presence.

Right out of their rehearsal space in Oakland, previously owned by a woodshop, DoTheBay's Sarah Fleker shot photos of the band in their natural element while we got on the phone with McCarter to get a closer look at one of the Bay Area's local heroes.

You moved to SF from Texas when you were 18, right?
