ROSWELL, Ga. – Guitarist Frank Vignola will perform as part of a duo at a Six String Social Club concert May 11 at the Unitarian Universalist Metro Atlanta North church.
Vignola is one of the world’s most highly sought after acoustic guitarists today. He has 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 Paul, Bucky Pizzarelli, Lionel Hampton, Donald Fagen, Queen Latifah, Ringo Starr and Madonna.
The duo of Frank and guitarist Vinny Raniolo tackles a unique, high-energy repertoire featuring contemporary tunes by the Police, Frank Zappa and Black Sabbath.
Not so contemporary numbers feature music by Bach and Mozart, and there are also jaw-dropping, lightning fast gypsy jazz originals.
The Six String Social Club is not affiliated with, funded by or endorsed by Unitarian Universalist Metro Atlanta North, nor is the program a UUMAN-sponsored event.
