The Bennett & Barton Song Salon
August 17 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
Elena Bennett and Fred Barton continue the run of their long-hailed “Bennett & Barton Song Salon,” in the front room of Pangea, 2nd Ave. at 12th St., Thursdays in August. The event will run for two hours on each night, between 8:30pm and 10:30pm. There is no cover or minimum.
Bennett & Barton were the first to originate the format of the Song Salon in the late 1990s, in their heyday at the pinnacle of cabaret/piano bars, Eighty-Eights. In addition to performing songs and taking requests from their vast repertoire, encompassing the best of Golden Age swing, Hollywood, Broadway, and radio – Bennett and Barton invite guest performers to get up with their best and knock it out of the park, for an unpredictable evening determined by audience members themselves. Past guests have included luminaries from throughout the entertainment world.
