TONIGHT: SISTA MONICA

The lovely and powerful Sista Monica Parker is in tonight, bringing the sweet sounds of Gospel-Soul-Blues as only Ms. Parker can. Come on in, don’t bother to sit..  You’ll be dancing all night anyhow.

TONIGHT: CON BRIO

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 guitar, 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..
