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".  Artist Official Website  Audio/Video Clips

Even though his career in music is only at the beginning, Vinny Raniolo has already had many opportunities that take most players a lifetime to achieve. He has already toured 14 countries with more to come. Currently, Vinny is touring as a duo with one of the world's finest guitarists, Frank Vignola. He also plays with many notable musicians such as, Tommy Emmanuel, Bucky Pizzarelli and David Grisman to name a few.
