The Broadway at Birdland concert series is proud to announce the return of Eric Comstock and Barbara Fasano in a new concert, “Only In New York: A Big Apple Valentine.” The very special one-night-only show will take place on Monday, February 9 at 7pm.

Married musical partners Eric Comstock & Barbara Fasano ("Exhilarating" -The New YorkTimes) are as entertaining as they are musically savvy. These award-winning artists swing into Valentine's week, celebrating rhythm &romance in New York. Their set is a free wheeling mash-up of contemporary theater songwriters Jeanine Tesori, Scott Frankel & Michael Korie, and Steven Lutvak, along with classics by Cole Porter, Joni Mitchell, Billy Strayhorn and Paul Simon.

Eric Comstock & 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. The multiple MAC, Bistro and New York Nightlife Award winners were honored with the 2013 MAC award for Major Duo Artists of the Year, and are regular performers at New York’s most prestigious clubs and concert halls. They were among the last performers to headline at the Algonquin Hotel’s legendary Oak Room Supper Club.Their fast-paced and swinging exploration of the Big Apple “Helluva Town: A NewYork Soundtrack” has had audiences standing and cheering from coast to coast.

Although they’ve been compared to Nick & Nora, Fred & Ginger, and Lunt & Fontanne, the “golden couple’s” style is all their own, with a wide choice of material that brings the generations together. Whether the song is by Cole Porter or Paul Simon, Duke Ellington or Joni Mitchell, Comstock & Fasano make it fresh and new, and their audiences feel they've been to a terrific party where the music and the stories have been equally great.

Comstock & Fasano have been honored as vocalists, recording artists, and writers of their numerous performance pieces. They received an unprecedented three MAC Awards in one year including Vocal Duo of the Year, Outstanding Female Vocalist and Record of the Year. Barbara’s award-winning Record of the Year, “Written In TheStars,” a Harold Arlen collection, is played on radio stations throughout theworld, and has been praised in such diverse publications as JazzTimes and Playbill. Her new CD drops in 2015. Eric, the co-creator and star of the long-running Off-Broadway hit revue Our Sinatra, recently released his fourth CD, “bitter/sweet,” an intimate guitar-vocal collaboration with guitar star Randy Napoleon.

Their many New York engagements include Carnegie Hall, The Appel Room and Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola at Jazz atLincoln Center, Merkin Hall, Symphony Space, Feinstein's, The Carlyle, Birdland,Jazz at Kitano, and the 92nd Street Y's ‘Lyrics and Lyricists’ series. Across the country, they headline at Caramoor, Cooperstown Music Festival, Arizona Jazz Festival, Guild Hall in East Hampton, Sheldon Concert Hall and Jazz at The Bistro in St. Louis, Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston, Prince Music Theatre inPhiladelphia, The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach, and in jazz and cabaret clubs, music festivals and concert halls worldwide. They recently made their London debut at Crazy Coqs at Brasserie Zédel. In the words of jazz critic Ira Gitler, they “have it all, and then some…artistic, swinging, and superbly entertaining.”
