Frank Vignola at The John G Shedd Institute for the Arts

2 I might go!

Add to Calendar 2013-06-07 2013-06-07 35 Frank Vignola at The John G Shedd Institute for the Arts There can be no doubt that Frank Vignola is now one of the world's most highly sought after acoustic guitarists. He has amply demonstrated his mastery of every genre from fusion and commercial pop-jazz to hard bop, post-bop, swing, rock, and blues.

Cited by jazz guitar legend Les Paul as one of the top five guitarists of all time, Vignola has toured and recorded with Bucky Pizzarelli, Les Paul, Lionel Hampton, Donald Fagen, Queen Latifah, Ringo Starr, Madonna, David Grisman, and Mark O'Connor.

The duo of Frank with guitarist Vinny Raniolo tackles a unique, high-energy repertoire featuring contemporary tunes by The Police, Frank Zappa, and Black Sabbath; not-so-contemporary numbers by Bach and Mozart; and of course jaw-dropping, lightning fast gypsy jazz originals. Their high-octane performances and good-time vibe never fail to bring astonished fans to their feet, making each appearance an unforgettable experience.
