Holmes, best known for his silky vocal stylings, has also honed his many other talents, which include dancing and a warm comedic touch. Perhaps Clint picked up that comedy know-how from the ever-popular Don Rickles, with whom he shared a stage. “I learned a lot from Don as he was very generous with me when I opened for him”, said Holmes. “He never held me back or limited my time on stage. I particularly learned a jazz comedian riffling style from him.”
The son of an African-American jazz musician and a classically-trained British opera singer, Clint Holmes was raised with the best of two musical worlds. Blessed with a powerful tenor voice, magnetic stage presence, and a charming comedic streak, Holmes makes every performance unforgettable. His 40-plus year career has taken him to the top of the charts, to concert halls, on TV screens, and also cemented his legacy as a veritable Las Vegas institution.
