Frank Vignola and Vinny Raniolo
June 10. It’s not a stretch to say that Frank Vignola is one of the most amazing guitarists you will ever witness. His late mentor, the great Les Paul, strongly agreed, naming the Orange County jazzman as one of his top five players. When it comes to Django Reinhardt’s gypsy style, there’s simply no better American practitioner today. This Rosendale Cafe reappearance pairs him with Vinny Raniolo, a sideman of Bucky Pizzarelli, Tommy Emmanuel, Tony Trishka, and Ken Peplowski. (Erin McKeown visits June 11; Shelley King reigns June 17.) 8pm. $15. Rosendale. (845) 658-9048; www.rosendalecafe.com.
