The duo has been hosting a star-studded group of performers every week since then, in the approximately hour long show, and the humor quotient has been very high, along with the music. The shows are live on Thursdays at 7:00PM EST. You can log on at:

Robert Bannon is in the process of recording his debut CD on LML Music, “FROM A DISTANCE: THE MUSIC OF THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK.” He has recorded the entire CD remotely (hence the name), with producer Bob Magnuson at the helm and arrangements by Tedd Firth. A singer and actor who has appeared in many great American Musicals including The Music Man, Rent, Bye Bye Birdie, and Guys and Dolls, Robert began his education in Musical Theater under Bertin Rowser at Julliard Prep and continued his acting and musical training, graduating from the two-year conservatory program at William Esper Studio under Barbara Marchant. In addition, Robert has studied with Matt Gould, Linda Benanti, and at the Harbor Conservatory. He has performed with Patti LaBelle, Roseanne Cash, Whoopi Goldberg, George Benson and Rosie O’Donnell and at such venues as Madison Square Garden, The Beacon Theater and the Brooklyn Academy of Music. You’ve seen him in many commercials, as well as 13 episodes of Saturday Night Live in Seasons spanning 43-45.
Lee Lessack’s graceful Lyric baritone have made him a shining star on the international concert scene. Billboard Magazine calls his singing “cabaret romanticism of a high order.” Touring extensively in the United States and Europe to sold-out performances and having released eight recordings thus far, Lee has proven himself both as a performer and recording artist.
He is currently re-releasing his highly acclaimed duets album, In Good Company (LMLMusic) and is celebrating the re-release by recording intimate interviews of his duet partners, including Amanda McBroom, Ann Hampton Callaway and Stephen Schwartz. The recording earned both a MAC Award and Bistro Award for Best Recording of the Year. You can see one of these interviews in every episode of Quarantine Cabaret and Cocktails.
