About Frank Vignola and the Virtuoso Band As many witnessed during his appearance with Fayetteville Jazz Collective last August, Jazz guitarist Frank Vignola is considered one of the most extraordinary musicians in the world today. His jaw-dropping technique and style have made him the guitarist of choice for everyone from Ringo Starr to Madonna, and has earned him countless turns performing with world-renowned orchestras like the Boston and New York Pops. This celebrated guitarist brings together a virtuosic team of musicians that shatters the barriers between classical, popular and traditional music to create a powerful new string experience.
