The YaYas return to The Towne Crier to play a long opening set for Frank Vignola!
Catherine Miles, Jay Mafale and Paul Silverman are The YaYas. They are also lifelong friends. It's that friendship, immediately apparent onstage, that makes their audience feel so at home. And, that could explain why their audiences quickly become part of the show (sometimes even providing the set list by picking songs out of a hat). The trio tells stories in timeless songs that make you think and sometimes laugh. They tell stories between the songs that make you laugh and sometimes think. Catherine's voice has been described as intimate, powerful, honest. Jay's percussive guitar and Paul's melodic piano create that distinctive "YaYa" sound. The YaYas do more than simply draw people in, they share themselves and the show with everyone in the room. www.WeAreTheYaYas.com
Frank Vignola is one of the most extraordinary guitarists performing before the public today. His stunning 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 Guitar 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."
