An Evening With Clint Holmes at The Suncoast Showroom Mar. 20-22

January 27, 2009 by  

clint-holmes-300-2Singer Clint Holmes only managed to notch one entry into the record charts, but his 1973 hit Playground in My Mind (My Name is Michael) was one of the more memorable songs by a one-hit wonder. The song was played on the radio in conjunction with the holidays (apparently feeling that the sing-song nature of the track gave it a seasonal feel) it drew a massive response. In June 1973, Playground in My Mind climbed to #2 selling over a million copies and lodge behind Paul McCartney’s My Love.

Born in Bournemouth, Dorset, England to an opera-singing mother and a jazz-musician father, Clint grew up in Farnham, New York. Singing and acting since childhood, Clint was playing in rock bands by high school and went on to study music in college. A stint in the Army found him singing in a military chorus and when he was relocated to Washington, DC, Clint continued to sing in clubs after his discharge gaining a regional following.

Clint’s first real break came when Joan Rivers invited him to be her sidekick and announcer on the now defunct The Late Show. This was followed by a two year stint on Entertainment Tonight, for which he served as their musical feature event correspondent.

Although his career was greatly enhanced by those roles, it did not all come together until he landed his own Emmy winning talk/variety show entitled New York at Night. Clint, in his dual role as host and singer, had the opportunity to showcase the full range of his talents as he performed, interviewed guests, and interacted with his audience.

Named Atlantic City’s Entertainer of the Year three times, Clint starred in Clint Holmes’ Sophisticated Rhythms, a dynamic stage show journey that takes you through the music of the 1940’s to the present.

In the world of theater, Clint is a seasoned performer and writer. Along with Nelson Cole he created the book, music and lyrics for the musical Comfortable Shoes. Clint starred in the World Premiere of this musical at the legendary Papermill Playhouse. Clint also anticipates taking his most recent creation entitled, Just Another Man to Broadway.

Clint is one of Prince Albert’s favorite entertainers, and jets off to Monte Carlo every summer at the Royal Family’s request to appear at the Sporting Club, Hotel Paris, and other hot spots. His sizzling performance has taken him from London, Germany and Italy to Las Vegas.

The Suncoast Showroom is a 450 seat venue featuring booth and table seating. Show time is 7:30 PM. Tickets priced from $29.95 plus tax can be purchased by calling the box office at 702-636-7075 or visiting the website at www.suncoastcasino.com.
