Formed in Baltimore in 1964
The original lineup of the Con Chords did not actually feature Brady; the group was instead fronted by George Layfield, who was backed by guitarist Dennis Zwirlein, bassist Vince Sansone, keyboardist Jim Samuel, trumpeter Lou Patti, saxophonist Dave Wladkowski, and drummer John Drexler. Brady joined in early 1965, as well as trombonist Larry Sprigg. Lou Patti was replaced from multi-instrumentalist Tony Constantino. After their third single release, "I Love You Baby" the group sacked Sansone and Drexler, adding bassist Tommy Thompson and drummer Marty Fisher. They played their final show on 29 December 1970. Several members later reunited in the group PennLucy, while Brady went on to work for music consulting firm A.I.R.
