“Clint Holmes: Between The Lines” will debut in the newly redesigned Palazzo Theatre on July 16, furthering the resort’s commitment to a broad spectrum of new entertainment offerings. Holmes latest adaptation, which will run Tuesday through Saturday at 10 p.m., is a culmination of all the artist has gleaned throughout his impressive career.
Promising a personal, melodic journey of contemporary hits and traditional standards, as well as original music written by Holmes, his objective was to create a show that “connects with the soul of the audience,” regardless of age or musical preference.
“Sometimes when we hear a song, we just concentrate on the words or the notes,” said Holmes. “But if you look closer between the lines of the music, there is deeper meaning that creates beautiful shared experiences.”
Holmes will be accompanied on stage by a seven-piece ensemble band including pianist and musical director Christian Tamburr, guitarist John Wedemeyer, saxophonist Rocco Barbato, drummer and percussionist Jakubu Griffin, bassist
Dave Ostrem, keyboardist and vocalist Jamie Hosmer.
Holmes will be joined on stage by Cuban-born singer and dancer Noybel Gorgoy, who most recently was featured as the lead singer of the “gypsy” jazz band Hot Club of Las Vegas. Growing up with an African-American jazz musician father and a British mother, who was a classically trained opera singer, Holmes has spent decades performing across the globe. He also served as Joan Rivers’ sidekick and announcer on “The Late Show,” as the musical feature and event correspondent for “Entertainment Tonight,” and as the host of his own Emmy award-winning talk/variety show. Holmes was named “Best Male Celebrity Vocalist” in the BroadwayWorld.com New York Cabaret Awards and voted “Best Singer” by the readers of Las Vegas Review-Journal.
“The newly designed Palazzo Theatre is the perfect venue for the intimate performance that Clint Holmes is known to deliver,” said George Markantonis, president and chief operating officer of The Venetian, The Palazzo and Sands Expo. “I’ve seen first-hand the talent that Clint brings to the stage, and I am certain our guests will be blown away by his show.”
