Frank Vignola is one of the most extraordinary guitarists performing before the public today. His stunning virtuosity has made him the guitarist of choice for many of the world""s top musicians, including Ringo Starr, Madonna, Donald Fagen, Wynton Marsalis, Tommy Emmanuel, the Boston Pops, the New York Pops, and guitar legend Les Paul, who named Vignola to his "Five Most Admired Guitar List" for the Wall Street Journal. Vignola""s jaw-dropping technique explains why the New York Times deemed him "one of the brightest...stars of the guitar". " How versatile is Frank Vignola? He""s collaborated with Lionel Hampton and Madonna, covers Mozart and McCartney on the same record and is one of Les Paul""s favorite guitarists." - Joan Anderman, Boston Globe "Vignola, who possesses jaw-dropping technique, wears his influences on the tip of his pick" - Mike Joyce - Washington Post
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
