” 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

“For me, the standout musician in the ensemble was guitarist Frank Vignola, who can play more musically at ridiculous tempos than just about anyone I’ve heard. Vignola had the crowd in the palm of his hand for every solo.”– The Jazz Session Jason Crane, Tanglewood Jazz Festival

“It’s not jazz as we know jazz here in America.” – Les Paul, on naming Vignola to his ‘Five Most Admired Guitarists’ list for The Wall Street Journal.

“Vignola returned on Sweet Georgia Brown, exhibiting his acoustic mastery in exhilarating single string runs, complex flurries and astounding full register riffs. When speed and clarity were demanded, Vignola stunned.” – Downbeat

“One of the brightest…stars of the guitar” – New York Times

Frank Vignola, born December 30th, 1965, 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 Vignole to his “Five Most Admired Guitarists List: for the Wall Street Journal.

His own PBS special, “Four Generations of Guitar” produced by Peter Berkow, premiered in the 2015 season as part of the 13 episode series “Music Gone Public”, where they were joined by special guests, Bucky Pizzarelli, Joe Craven and Tommy Emmanuel.
