Dad-daughter duos take the stage at Hey Nonny this Father’s Day

What do you get the dad who has everything? Some dads will get a chance to step onto the Hey Nonny stage this Father’s Day. The Arlington Heights bistro and music venue will welcome three talented dad-daughter duos to the stage for a unique June 18 show.

The lineup will include The Swains, Pino Farina Band, and the Polish American duo of Mariusz and Adela Skowronski, with things kicking off at 7:30 p.m.

“Sometimes music does run in the family,” said Hey Nonny co-owner Chip Brooks. “These three duos will cover a wide range of musical genres with some generational viewpoints thrown in.”

Local fans may already be familiar with the Pino Farina Band. The adult-alt rockers have built a solid following for their high-energy performances built around Pino Farina’s powerhouse vocals. Whether it’s a full-on rock number or a haunting ballad, Farina crosses a full five octaves to deliver both original songs and some beloved covers.

Jack and Rachel Swain lean into their catalog of original and classic country songs with striking family harmonies and skilled guitar work. They expose a wide range of human experiences delivered in country, southern rock, roadhouse, and red dirt styles.

Polish American musicians Mariusz and Adela Skowronski will play songs from their debut EP featuring lyrics in both Polish and English.

“This should be a really fun night,” said Brooks. “Rather than a game of Yahtzee and a walk around the park, treat dad to some great live music that will be based on family bonds.”
