THE YANKS ARE COMING!
WE'RE SO HAPPY TO BE TAKING OUR SHOW
ACROSS THE POND!
“Exhilarating and witty … Cabaret caviar …
Mr. Comstock and Ms. Fasano are turning the neighborhood
into a hotbed of pleasure.” ~ The New York Times
“What a brilliant premise!
Flawless and elegant delivery of the lyrics and the music …
Fasano’s sexy intelligence plays against Comstock’s impishness and heart,
all set to their spare, jazz-infused arrangements." ~ Cabaret Scenes Magazine
Did you ever think about how many songs in the Great American Songbook originated in the UK? Join the New York nightclub world’s most celebrated team, pianist/singer ERIC COMSTOCK and vocalist BARBARA FASANO, as they celebrate the great songs of Great Britain in their new show, “DOWNTOWN ABBEY ROAD: The Best of Britain.”
Winners of 8 MAC Awards (and honored for the fourth time as BEST DUO ARTISTS in 2018), 5 New York Bistro Awards and the New York Nightlife Award, these married musical partners are the ideal guides to take you through the great, surprising and entertaining songs by writers like Noel Coward, Ivor Novello, Sting & the Beatles.
There's music that unites the generations -- from songs of World War II ("A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square",
"We'll Meet Again", "London Pride") to pop & jazz standards by Petula Clark and Dusty Springfield
to Broadway show tunes from "Oliver!" and "The Roar of the Greasepaint".
It’s a sultry, swinging party where the music and stories are equally great,
and you’ll be surprised by how many great “American” standards
were actually penned across the pond!
Join Eric and Barbara for an evening of COOL BRITANNIA!
