Clint Holmes Celerates Cole Porter and Paul Simon At LIVE AT THE RRAZZ, Now thru 1/27
Live at The RRazz, San Francisco's premier nightclub, presents the Bay Area debut of the celebrated entertainer Clint Holmes from tonight, January 22 to 27. "This Thing Called Love," which just earned rave reviews at the legendary Café Caryle in New York, features the music of Cole Porter and Paul Simon. The New York Timescalled the show "stirring and dramatic." Using the words and music of Porter and Simon, Holmes will explore, examine and compare the two songwriter's views on the universal subject of love. The evening includes such songs as Porter's "Get Out of Town" juxtaposed with Simon's "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover," and Simon's contemporary classic "Slip Sliding Away" alongside the Porter standard "I Concentrate on You," among others. Mr. Holmes will be accompanied by a band led by his Musical Director/Arranger Jeffrey Neiman. The evening will be directed by Larry Moss.
