Birdland Resident Artists Eric Comstock (piano/vocals) & Barbara Fasano (vocals), whose electrifying combination of warmth, wit, swing, and sensuality have made them the nightclub world’s most celebrated team, are every bit as entertaining as they are musically savvy. Join Eric & Barbara for the holiday weekend as they blend winter favorites with the best of Broadway, Hollywood, the pop and jazz songbooks, and the singer/songwriters: from Cole Porter to Paul Simon, Duke Ellington to Joni Mitchell, Sinatra to Sting. It’s always a terrific party where the music and the stories are equally great.
Although this married musical duo has been compared to Bobby Short and Lena Horne, Fred and Ginger, and Lunt and Fontanne, the “golden couple’s” style is all their own, with a wide choice of material that brings the generations together. Winners of 8 MAC Awards, 5 Bistro Awards, and The New York Nightlife Award, Barbara & Eric have headlined from London to Lincoln Center, and the Algonquin to Carnegie Hall. During the pandemic, their weekly series #72andsong has been streaming on social media. In October, they received the 2021 Donald F. Smith Award from the Mabel Mercer Foundation, acknowledging their rank as preeminent pop and jazz song stylists. Joining them will be renowned bassist/composer Sean Smith & eminent drummer Vito Lesczak.
