This series provides a unique and intimate opportunity for audiences to experience some of the finest cabaret acts in the entertainment industry. This performance is co-sponsored by Dolores and Michael Kara.
Clint Holmes is a rare performer who can legitimately be called one of the greatest contemporary entertainers of our time, moving effortlessly between the worlds of music, television and theatre. Music reviewers described Holmes' performances as "Wonderful!" (New York Observer) and filled with "Excitement and sophistication" (The New York Times). Whether headlining New York's Café Carlyle, Las Vegas' showrooms or performing with America's most prestigious orchestras, every performance is an unforgettable experience with selections from the Great American Songbook, standards from Sinatra's legendary repertoire, contemporary classics and stirring original music.
Holmes' career soared after the release of his hit song "Playground in My Mind" in 1973, reaching #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. In 2012 he premiered "This Thing Called Love - The Music of Cole Porter and Paul Simon" to rave reviews. He is the Artist-in-Residence at Cabaret Jazz at the Smith Center for the Performing Arts in Las Vegas. Like a painter with a blank canvas, Holmes makes every performance an original. His powerful voice and magnetic stage presence embrace the upbeat side of life. To hear a sample of Clint Holmes' musical style, singing "What's Going On" visit, http://youtu.be/vd0j2zY9S9k.
