(Tracy Vignati & Fabrice Vignati)

“Smoke is a singer’s kryptonite! Gagging in the middle of a song due to smoke in the room from those who ignore rules or where there are no rules, is torture. People should not be forced to be exposed to smoke at music venues. There is no risk-free level of exposure to someone else’s drifting smoke. Involuntary smoking puts people at increased high risk of death, lung cancer, heart disease and other illnesses. The rationale for smoke-free venues is based on the fact that smoking is optional and breathing is not. A ginormous thank you to those cities and venues who choose to make their venues smoke-free. Let’s work together to make this Smokefree Music Cities campaign a global reality.”

THE VIGNATIS are the dynamic vocal duo who have given birth to their own musical genre creation, GYPSYBILLY. This genre blends their French and American cultural/musical backgrounds with vocals in a melange of Rockabilly, Gypsy, Country and Jazz, including swinging’, drivin’, rockin’ drum beats with modern/vintage instrumentation of electric guitar and upright slap bass, and even an electrified clarinet. They are both voting members of The Recording Academy with 4 albums under their belts and a 5th in progress, as well as an extensive catalog in all styles of music available for licensing.
