One of Chicago's most popular and acclaimed musical duos and national Jazz radio favorites, Anne Burnell and Mark Burnell, celebrate the release and success of their new CD, "Two For The Road," with a return performance at Hey Nonny and their Sunday Jazz Brunch, 10 S. Vail Ave., Arlington Heights. Their performance will take place on Sunday October 9, 2022 from 10:30 a.m.- 2 p.m. Visit heyNonny.com or call 224-202-0750 for reservations and further information.

Anne and Mark are excited to return to Hey Nonny and perform songs from their acclaimed new album. Mark loves playing on their "Amazing Yamaha grand," and praised their stage, lighting and sound system. Anne enjoys the atmosphere saying "It's a comfortable place for people," and that it gives their suburban fans an opportunity to some and hear them. They will also return for a second fall date on Sunday, November 13th.


In just a few short weeks, Two For The Road has become an instant jazz radio favorite across the nation, garnering airplay at over 60 jazz radio stations including WRUW/Cleveland, KPBX/Spokane, WWUH/Hartford, WWNO/New Orleans, WPPB/Long Island, WAER/Syracuse, WDCB/Chicago, and KCSB/Santa Barbara. They also performed live on Chicago's WGN Midday Show, appeared on WGN Radio on After Hours with Rick Kogan, and had a feature article in the Chicago Tribune. "Two For The Road" is the perfect showcase of Anne and Mark Burnell's many talents. And as noted Grammy Award-winning author and jazz critic Neil Tesser exclaims "it is one sweet ride."

Singer-songwriter Anne Burnell has been praised as "a singer of glorious gifts" by the Chicago Tribune and a "fluid, silken voice navigates the various scales with remarkable agility and delightful phrasing" by Chicago Jazz Magazine. While her multitalented, singer-arranger-pianist husband Mark Burnell was called "silky smooth and highly polished," by the Chicago Tribune. Mark has been recognized and lauded for his musical creativity and versatility with Chicago Jazz Magazine saying, "He uses his skill and instincts as a jazz improviser to adapt to any situation, even one that contains no jazz at all."

Named "Chicago's Top Ten" for two consecutive years by New York's Cabaret Hotline, Anne and Mark have delighted audiences in Bern, Zurich, Paris, Freiburg, Geneva, Jamaica, Panama, and Amsterdam. But it's in Chicago where they have made their huge musical imprint, performing at some of the Windy City's top spots including Davenport's, Skokie Theatre, Park West, Drury Lane Water Tower Theatre, Tortoise Supper Club, WDCB Jazz at the Logan, Le Piano and Signature Room. They have also performed the national anthem for the Chicago Cubs, White Sox, Chicago Fire, Arlington Park, and Special Olympics. Their recordings, "Little Things We Do Together," "Blues In The Night" and "Summer Days & Dreamy Nights," have been featured on Chicago radio stations WGN, WBEZ, WDCB and nationally on NPR stations.
