MARK TONAI

Mark Tonai is the lead guitarist for Anfang. Coming up on Chicago’s Southside, Mark began his love affair with all things rock and blues while spinning his late father’s vinyl collection. His own massive CD repository is thus inspired. Influenced by greats like Zeppelin, Sabbath, Stevie Ray, and Hendrix, Mark chose to pick up a guitar, and to this day is still trying to figure out how to play the dang thing.

Also his wife. And his daughter, too. In his spare time he pretends to be an architect. Among his influences are Coheed, Thrice, and The Fall of Troy.
