From Carnegie Hall & Lincoln Center to Birdland & London's Crazy Coqs, their electrifying combination of warmth, wit, swing and sensuality led The New York Times to rave, “Exhilarating … Mr. Comstock and Ms. Fasano are turning the neighborhood into a hotbed of pleasure.” This coming August marks their 10th wedding anniversary, and they’re celebrating all year long! Eric is appearing every Tuesday night at New York's hottest new venue, Café Noctambulo at Pangea. Eric & Barbara return to Birdland on August 17 & September 29, & will be appearing at Neue Galerie & the Cabaret Convention in October.

The evening begins at 7:00, has a 15-minute break at 8:30 and ends promptly at 10:30. If you would like to sign up to perform, see one the evening's 'Etceterettes' to fill out a card with your name, the name of your song, whether or not Mark will be playing for you and any upcoming events you'd like to promote. We do not present performers in order of sign-up, however, indicating requests as clearly and as early as possible as far as time restraints are concerned always makes everything much more possible. ALWAYS BRING SEVERAL SONG SELECTIONS to avoid duplication. All types of material, on or off theme are always welcome at Salon. We enthusiastically welcome instrumentalists, poets, playwrights, essayists, comics, illusionists and performance artists. Please limit your selections to three or four minutes in length (including introductions). Please also bring clear, complete charts for Mark to read. Sitting on the piano is not allowed, nor is flash photography. Please turn off all noise making devices and give performers your undivided attention.

Looking forward to seeing you all Sunday, July 13th!
