And Special Guests

Each Monday for more than a decade, three musicians made magic on Broadway creating the sound behind legendary guitar wizard Les Paul at the Iridium Jazz Club. Sanctuary friend Frank Vignola was a member of that trio, and he and his bandmates Lou Pallo on rhythm guitar and bassist Nicki Parrott are coming to The Sanctuary.

In 2015 Les Paul turned 100, and this show is the first time that the Trio has played together to honor Les Paul since passing in 2009. In the tradition of the Les Paul shows at the Iridium, we will have some surprise musicians joining Frank on stage. Les dipped into all kinds of music at his shows, so we'll hear everything from folk to rock, jazz to Django while having a lot of laughs along the way.

Frank Vignola has a funny and dynamic personality on stage, and each of his performances is a show to remember. Last year his concert with us filled the room with great guitar chops. The Les Paul shows were the best kept secret in New York City for more than a decade. In Chatham on New Years' weekend, the secret is out.
