Marilyn Maye has entertained and touched the hearts of several generations of fans who love the Great American Song Book, great ballads and genuine "selling" of a song through impeccable phrasing and vocal style. A genuine legend, her recording of "Too Late Now" was selected for inclusion in the Smithsonian Institute's Best Performers of the Best Compositions of the 20th Century Permanent Collection, along with such other singing greats as Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra and Judy Garland. She has received many awards in recognition of her work, including a Grammynomination. Maye is also known to have appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson for a record 76 times. Still touring strong well into her 80s, The New York Times states, "She has more voice and stamina than most singers half her age."
Clint Holmes is a master showman who never performs the same show twice and covers a variety of genres that include contemporary to jazz to Broadway. In April 2012, Holmes was honored to assume the mantle of Artist-In-Residence for Cabaret Jazz at the newly openEd Smith Center for the Performing Arts in Las Vegas. Each month, he performs a new show there to a sold-out crowd. The New York Times notes, "A brainy showman whose sensitivity to lyrics is matched by his fearlessness as a performer."
