The Mark Tonelli Group performs music from creative and unexpected streams. Primarily, the group performs Mark's original music, which has won awards from the Billboard Magazine World Song Contest, USA Songwriting Competition, and The Great American Song Contest. Mark's music is featured on his three records on the MTonal Music label and has been heard on NPR's All Things Considered. The group also performs rock hits that are unlikely candidates for jazz, including the music of Queen, David Bowie, and Tom Petty, finding interesting ways to reinterpret them. In addition, the group performs Jazz: Italian Style, a collection of intriguing songs from 1960's Italian pop radio re-imagined for a 21st century jazz group. You never know what you will hear in a Mark Tonelli Group performance, but you can be sure it will challenge your perceptions and ignite your imagination. Mark Tonelli - guitar, Arthur White - saxophones, Andy Crawford - bass and Tom Marko - drums. .

The Central Illinois Jazz Society House Band will play during the first set, under the leadership of Larry Harms - sax
