Smart bets: Con Brio

Soulful pop-rock group Con Brio will stop in Asheville while on tour for last summer’s release of Paradise, the band’s first full-length album. Inspired by a vision frontman Ziek McCarter received of his father, on the eve of recording, Paradise — with a mix of catchy melodies, impassioned R&B and occasional ska-inspired horn solos — is an invitation to listeners to find paradise here on Earth. The album was well-received, but Con Brio’s highest praise comes in regard to its live performances. When asked what fans can expect at the upcoming Asheville show, the band replied, “Dance, sweat and to leave a little freer than when they arrived.” Con Brio headlines Asheville Music Hall on Saturday, May 13, at 9 p.m. $9/$13.
