Eric Comstock and Barbara Fasano, 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.

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. Their repertoire runs the gamut from Cole Porter to Paul Simon, from Duke Ellington to Joni Mitchell, from Sinatra to Sting. Eric and Barbara make all of it fresh, new, spontaneous, and fun — and their audiences feel they’ve been to a terrific party where the music and the stories have been equally great. Regular performers at New York’s most prestigious clubs and concert halls, Eric and Barbara’s cozy New York apartment is filled with awards for their concerts and recordings. Winners of 8 MAC Awards, 5 New York Bistro Awards and the New York Nightlife Award, most recently they were honored for the fourth time with the Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs (MAC) award for Major Duo Artists. Barbara’s latest CDs, “WRITTEN IN THE STARS” and “BUSY BEING FREE”, were both awarded the MAC Award for Recording of the Year. Their fast-paced and swinging concerts of songs from the jazz and pop songbooks have been hailed as “exhilarating” and “witty” by The New York Times, and have had audiences standing and cheering from coast to coast and in London.
