Clint Holmes = next Wayne Newton (And it's a good thing.)
You'll be rubbing your eyes in childish, am-I-dreaming? wonder when you read this New York Times review of Clint Holmes. Then you'll say, "They like us! THEY REALLY LIKE US!"
Mr. Holmes, fortunately, has more talent than Mr. Newton. And on Tuesday evening at Feinstein’s at Loews Regency, his aggressive, sweaty showmanship had the opening-night crowd on its feet. His high-energy singing is a friendly frontal assault whose sheer enthusiasm softens your resistance. He was backed by a trio that included Jeff Neiman on keyboard, Steve Beskrone on bass and Jess Gopen slam-banging the drums.
