Whether laying down 4/4 swing with a quartet in a club or performing a moving Brazilian ballad on the guitar, Jeff Brueske brings a musical ear and the soul of an improviser to his performances.

"Brueske's bass:  rock steady, earthquake-proof, the pylon in the maelstrom"  -- Bebopified

JoAnn Funk and Steven Marking

Crooners Lounge, 6161 Highway 65 NE , Minneapolis, MN 55432

Jazz pianist singer JoAnn Funk brings her unique piano vocal style to this entertaining show. These days she is traveling and performing - enjoy this rare treat to hear her in the Twin Cities! Baritone Steven Marking will be performing an astonishing range of music, from Schubert, Samuel Barber and Flanders and Swann, to songs from musicals. Never one to take himself too seriously, Steve has a comfortable stage presence and is a marvelous storyteller.

Bassist and vocalist Jeff Brueske rounds out the talented trio, adding swing and beauty to everything, and also doing some great singing reminiscent of John Pizzarelli.
