Holiday Guitar Extravaganza (hosted by Arts meetup)

In my pursuit to inform you of cool, jazzy-type events, I wanted to highlight a concert of fast lickin' guitar players. Frank Vignola in particular is a local shredding hero. Music is from the great American song book, played in settings ranging from solo guitar to Gypsy swing. Fri, 12/14 in White Plains.

This event was uncovered and the meetup is hosted by Laura S over at . Our group doesn't (yet) have our own host for meeting up this night, so if you're interested, options are:
- Go for it! Buy your own ticket and enjoy the show
- Volunteer to host on our site (let Scott know). Coordination could be as simple as identifying a location to meet pre-event (general admission/will-call seats mean you can sit together that day, if you get to the show a bit early).
- Join Laura's Westchester-Fairfield Arts meetup, in addition to our jazz-focused group, and participate in her meetup coordination for the event. She is arranging for a dinner place beforehand, though I hear she has only a handful of reservation spots left open, so visit her site at your earliest convenience.

Finally, let me know if you find these kind of event notices, where we don't have an initial host, useful. Sometimes, group members will spontaneously rise-up! and self-organize :-)

    I wish a great time to everyone who is attending the Holiday Guitar Extravaganza this weekend. It'll be some serious guitarin'! If you are going, you might also check Laura's Westchester-Fairfield Arts Group at for any last minute thoughts and note her comment below this here on the meetup site about optionally meeting at La Bocca Ristorante at 6:30. Give her a shout if you're going to do that. Thanks Laura for finding this, and happy holidays to everyone.

    Hi Everyone - Whoever would like to get together before the performance can meet us (members of the arts group - some are members of both groups) for a drink or appetizer anytime after 6:30 at the bar area of La Bocca Ristorante, located a block away at 8 Church Street (at the corner of Main Street). We'll then head over to ArtsWestchester for seating around 7:45. If you have any questions, please contact me. Hope you can join us! Laura

    Thanks for the folks who are signing up for the Holiday Guitar Extravaganza. Just to note, we have members going but no host via our meetup (I'm not actually attending this one, just promoting if for your interest). if you're looking for a host to coordinate dinner, etc visit Laura S's meetup at

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
