MARCUS GOLDHABER BENEFIT @ METROPOLITAN

****
The Metropolitan Room

34 West 22nd St.
New York, NY 10010
212.206.0440 
****


Marcus Goldhaber





Critically acclaimed jazz-pop singer-songwriter MARCUS GOLDHABER has decided to dedicate his performance tonight at the Metropolitan Room in New York City to raising funds and collecting non-perishables for the American Red Cross to help his fellow New Yorkers and the rest of the tri-state area victimized by Hurricane Sandy.


The "wonderfully imaginative" (JazzTimes) artist, whose acclaimed new CD of all original standards, ALMOST LOVE, is getting radio airplay in a number of major markets around the country, including WBAI in New York, is donating a portion of proceeds from ticket sales and all CD sales at the event to the American Red Cross. He also will be collecting non-perishables: coats, gloves, scarfs, toothbrushes/toothpaste, canned food, plastic bins, backpacks, batteries, flashlights, and the like.


"After a crisis, our immediate response is crucial,," says Goldhaber, whose show, "When You're Smiling: The Songs of 1928," will salute such songwriters as Fats Waller, Richard Rogers and Larry Shay. "But it is equally if not more important to sustain our relief efforts in the weeks and months that follow.We can't afford to let the news cycle dictate what is worthy of our attention, especially when it comes to taking care of those in need."

ERIC COMSTOCK & BARBARA FASANO CONCERT

****
THE NIGHT HAS A THOUSAND EYES
****



Eric Comstock And Barbara Fasano





ERIC COMSTOCK & BARBARA FASANO, the popular husband-and-wife team equally respected in both the pop and jazz worlds, return to The Metropolitan Room, 34 West 22nd Street, NYC, for a one-week engagement beginning October 15th and continuing through October 20th. The newly conceived evening, called “THE NIGHT HAS A THOUSAND EYES”, is a celebration of the intimacy and truth-telling that defines the best nightclub experience. Comstock and Fasano make the case for the validity and relevance of this music in this setting in our digital 21st Century. Their musical repertoire reflects the varied and ever-growing pop and jazz songbooks, from Duke Ellington, Jerome Kern and Cole Porter to Joni Mitchell, Stephen Sondheim and Tom Waits. They will be accompanied by Sean Smith on bass. There is a $25 cover charge plus a two-drink minimum. For reservations call (212) 206-0440. For more information visit www.metropolitanroom.com.


The performance schedule for “THE NIGHT HAS A THOUSAND EYES” is:



Monday, October 15 @ 9:30 PM
Tuesday, October 16 @ 7 PM
Wednesday, October 17 @ 7 PM
Thursday, October 18 @ 9:30 PM
Friday, October 19 @ 7 PM
Saturday, October 20 @ 9:30 PM 



Comstock said: “Barbara and I want to create an evening that celebrates coming together by being together in a small room sharing great songs.” Fasano adds: “I think it is a primal need right now – the coming together around the campfire to share stories, laughs, truths.”


Comstock and Fasano's combination of warmth, wit, swing and sensuality have made them a celebrated team in the nightclub world. This Metropolitan Room run will be their first major NY engagement since their 2011 show, "HELLUVA TOWN" at the Algonquin’s Oak Room (“Exhilarating” -- Stephen Holden, The New York Times). Of their previous sold-out Metropolitan Room engagement, The New York Post’s Frank Scheck raved, "Their joint venture is a capital idea. When they sing together the evening is transformed from collaboration to alchemy."
