The Frank Vignola Duo

Frank Vignola & Vinny Raniolo
World Class Guitar Virtuosos

Sunday, December 11, 2016 at 4:00 p.m.

only $20

Frank Vignola and Vinny Raniolo are Mainstay favorites. Frank is a stunning guitarist, one of the most respected and sought after acoustic guitarists in the world. He plays everything from Jazz and swing to blues and bluegrass and has has toured and recorded with major artists such as Bucky Pizzarelli, Les Paul, Lionel Hampton, Donald Fagen, Queen Latifah, Ringo Starr, Madonna and David Grisman. Vinny plays outstanding rhythm and 2nd lead. Drawing on more than 300 years of classic songs, Frank and Vinny create unique, sometimes intense and often quite beautiful arrangements of familiar and beloved songs. Although both guitarists have been deeply influenced by many great jazz guitarists, they are not a jazz guitar duo but the sense of spontaneity, imagination and virtuosity that are hallmarks of jazz are fully present in their performances, taking you on a breathtaking whirlwind tour of musical history. Bach, Mozart and Beethoven will be freely mixed with Ellington and Waller, blended with Gershwin and Carmichael, peppered with Bob Marley, Sting and Lennon/McCartney, and spiced with Rodrigo and Lecuona all with a great sense of humor. In keeping with the season, they also promise a couple of holiday tunes. Don’t miss!

Featuring the stunning world-class guitarist John Jorgenson, the Quintet fuses Gypsy Jazz, the dynamic string-driven swing created by Django Reinhardt and Stefane Grappelli in 1930s Paris, with elements from Latin, Romanian, Classical, Rock and Greek music creating a "21st Century World Music." Guitar aficionados will know Jorgenson as a founding member of the Desert Rose Band (with Chris Hillman) and a member of the legendary guitar band, the Hellecasters. He won a 2009 Grammy for Best Country Instrumental album as part of a supergroup including Brad Paisley, Vince Gill, James Burton, Albert Lee and Steve Wariner. He is a 3-time Academy of Country Music “Guitarist of the Year” and was a six-year member of Elton John's band. An “A-list” studio musician working in LA, London and Nashville, he is also internationally known as a pioneer of the American gypsy jazz movement inspired by the music of Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club de France. A dazzling guitarist, he is also a masterful clarinetist. The Quintet performs classic standards from the gypsy jazz repertoire and stylish new compositions that will please jazz lovers, acoustic music enthusiasts and devotees of guitar gods alike.
