Aug. 21 A Homegrown Music Concert Encore with THE FRANK AND JOE SHOW. During the series’ summer concert hiatus, producer George Graham presents rebroadcasts of memorable live concerts from the past. This is a particularly special and poignant show from 2004. Jazz guitar virtuoso Frank Vignola and drummer-percussionist Joe Acione had a long-running association creating enjoyable swinging music in the Django Reinhardt Gypsy swing style, but with an eclectic repertoire and sense of whimsical good fun. Sadly, Joe Acione passed away from multiple sclerosis in 2016, and Frank Vignola suffered debilitating injuries from an ATV accident in 2017 that left him unable to play, though after a long recovery, he is performing again. This concert with a sextet captures Frank and Joe’s collaboration at their peak.
