Vince Currao has been playing guitar for over 50 years. When he was just 10 years old, his father, Charles Currao, one of the greatest fretted instrument players (guitar, tenor banjo, steel guitar, bass, mandolin, ukulele, etc.) taught both Vince and his twin brother Mike to play guitar. Because of his tutoring, they were both accomplished musicians by the age of 12. They made their debut appearing on the Ted Mack television and

 
 

radio shows, winning on both. In addition, their appearance on the Arthur Godfrey show led to an offer by NBC to tour, but because of their age, their musical career continued but second to their education. As a teenager, Vince backed up some of the more popular 50’s artists, including Paul Anka, The Three Friends, Neil Sedaka, The Royal Teens (who became Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons) and the Tokens (Jay and the Americans).

Continuing as a studio guitarist for major record labels, including ABC Paramount in New York, Vince followed the footsteps of his father, concentrating his efforts solely on the guitar while his brother Mike, began to study the banjo. In 2007, Mike was nominated to the Banjo Hall of Fame. For many years, Vince continued to play professionally in the New York area. Presently living in Atlanta, his effort has been totally devoted to recording CDs for family and friends. The CDs highlighted in this website were made using a multi-track digital recorder. Vince plays all parts including lead, fill-ins, rhythm and bass. With a style similar to both Chet Atkins and Les Paul, two of his favorite guitar players, his recordings reflect the original teachings of his father with a clean and clear sound.
