Guitarists Frank Vignola and Vinny Raniolo will perform in the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s McCoy Studio Theater on Thursday, Jan. 14, beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Vignola’s 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 Guitarists” 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.”

Vignola and Raniolo are amazing guitarists with extraordinary technical skills.

With nearly 1,000 engagements in five years, Vignola and Raniolo have become one of the most popular and sought-after duos on the international music scene.

“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 magazine said.
