Very professional musicians, our tenant holiday party was such a success, and largely due to the beautiful music being played. I would highly recommend them!

Con Brio Trio was professional and sounded amazing. They brought all mecessary equipment and kept the party going. They also offered many songs to choose from in their repertoire, so everyone loved them.
Thanks again for helping make our wedding so special!
Response from Con Brio Trio:
Thanks so much, Jessica! We loved playing for you and your loved ones. Congratulations again on a beautiful wedding!
We cannot say enough good things about our experience with Bria and Con Brio Trio. They traveled to Spruce Mountain Ranch in Larkspur to play for our daughters wedding ceremony. Outstanding! We had many comments about their performance and the lovely touch having them brought to our day. They were very accommodating and super easy to work with...would highly recommend this faboulous group of musicians.
Con Brio Trio was an absolutely wonderful addition to our wedding. Bria was very responsive to my emails and the whole process was very smooth. The band learned two new songs for our wedding, including one which some friends sang along with. I couldn't have asked for more, it was perfect! Thanks Con Brio Trio!
We hired the Con Brio Trio to play for 2 hours at our wedding. They played before the ceremony as guests arrived, during the ceremony, and for the entire cocktail hour. I literally cannot compliment them enough! They were by far our favorite vendor. From my first communications with Bria, I knew they would not disappoint, and I was right.. They are all SO talented and were able to customize three songs for me, which really meant so much to me and my family. Brad, the guitarest, was able to compose them and they truly sounded perfect. They are all extremely professional and polite, and their music is absolutely exquisite. I would without a doubt, HIGHLY recommend them to anyone, for any type of event! I am so THRILLED that I will be able to see and hear them play at my sister's wedding later this year. Working with them and communicating was a breeze. Bria is such a sweet person and very polite and prompt with responding to all of my emails. I also think the price I paid was extremely reasonable. They were worth every penny and thensome!! If you are considering hiring them, DO IT! I promise, you will not be disappointed at all!!
We had a pleasure of welcoming Con Brio Trio at our Musical Salon last Friday. The concert was very well recieved, and our residents complemented musicians a lot, appreciating the selection and variety of musical pieces, as well as their professionalism and very pleasent personalities.

What to Expect
One of Con Brio Trio's many talents is the ability to fit in perfectly with any event - we can serve as the perfect mood-setting background music, or we can provide more of a spotlight/showcase performance. We provide our own sound equipment and music stands. The only thing we ever require from the venue are chairs, a power source, and extension cable if applicable. We easily work directly with wedding and event coordinators to ensure that the timing and mood of music is a perfect fit for the client's needs. Special song requests are never an issue for us as Brad, our guitarist, is extremely skilled with composing and arranging for our group!
When planning your event, our manager, Bria, is available by phone or email at any time of the day. We are very well organized, and quick to respond to any requests you may have. We realize that no two events are ever the same, and take great joy in customizing each event to ensure all of our clients' needs and requests are met in a timely fashion.
