Although his career spans four decades, Clint Holmes is in the midst of a significant breakthrough.

Reviewing Holmes' tribute to Paul Simon and Cole Porter last year at the Café, Stephen Holden wrote in The New York Times that Holmes merged "the excitement of Las Vegas and the sophistication of Manhattan" and further described Holmes as "a brainy showman." Holmes' 2011 Café Carlyle debut, Remembering Bobby Short, was equally beloved. He shifts the focus to his own remarkable life story with Stop This Train, returning to the venue trough October 12.
