Con Brio: Xandra Corpora Farewell Show
with guests:
Justin Ancheta Band

Powered by the strikingly soulful vocals of Xandra Corpora, 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 instrumentation is timeless: saxophone and trumpet roll over thick organ grooves while electric guitar, upright bass and drums keep heads nodding and the dance floor moving. A lesser singer could be forgiven for getting lost in the mix, but Corpora stands out. Her rich and powerful voice is the first thing to grab you, but it is the raw honesty and sincerity of the lyrics that stay with you long after the club goes dark or the record stops spinning. 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 sextet 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-spades.
