Did you ever think about how many songs in the Great American Songbook actually originated in the UK? The New York nightclub world’s most celebrated couple, pianist/singer Eric Comstock and vocalist Barbara Fasano, return to London to celebrate the great songs of Great Britain in their new show, Downtown Abbey Road: The Best of Britain. Winners of 8 MAC Awards, 5 New York Bistro Awards and the New York Nightlife Award, these married musical partners bring their Manhattan point of view to great, surprising and entertaining songs by writers like Noel Coward, Ivor Novello, Sting & the Beatles. 

“exhilarating ... Cabaret caviar”

The New York Times

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".  The New York Times calls their concerts “witty” and “exhilarating”, and raves, “Mr. Comstock and Ms. Fasano are turning the neighborhood into a hotbed of pleasure.”  Cabaret Scenes Magazine proclaims, “What a brilliant premise!  Musically, the team is reminiscent of Julie Wilson and William Roy in their heyday, with Fasano’s sexy intelligence playing against Comstock’s impishness and heart, all set to their spare, jazz-infused arrangements.”  It’s a sultry, swinging party where the music and stories are equally great. Join Eric and Barbara for an evening of COOL BRITANNIA!    /
