ERIC COMSTOCK & BARBARA FASANO, whose electrifying combination of warmth, wit, swing and sensuality have made them the nightclub world's most celebrated team, return to Germano’swith their fast-paced and swinging exploration of The Great American Songbook, then and now. And on Saturday, once again they’ll be teaching a Master Class.
There's something for everyone, from great standards Sinatra made famous to jazz, pop, Broadway and other surprising songs you didn't know you loved! As entertaining as they are musically savvy, their intimate connection with their audiences have won them fans coast to coast. Winners of 8 MAC Awards, 5 New York Bistro Awards and the New York Nightlife Award, they were honored recently for the fourth time with the Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs (MAC) award for Major Duo Artists. Comstock has been called "an ingenious musical wit … cabaret caviar" (The New York Times). The New York Observer’s Rex Reed raves, “Fasano gives off palpable electricity.” Sultry, soulful and surprising, Eric & Barbara will bring you laughs & love songs from Cole Porter, Rodgers and Hart,Stephen Sondheim, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, Peggy Lee and other geniuses of the jazz, pop and Broadway songbooks. The New York Times calls their shows "witty" & "exhilarating". This glamorous duo makes the songbook come alive, and they promise a party where the music & the stories will be equally great.In the words of revered jazz critic Ira Gitler, “They have it all, and then some … artistic, swinging, and superbly entertaining.”
