In celebration of his 100th birthday, jazz favorites and vocal legends Clint Holmes and Billy Stritch will pay tribute to the unforgettable Nat "King” Cole with their new show, "Straighten Up and Fly Right — The Music of Nat “King” Cole." Joined by musical director Christian Tamburr and his trio, longtime friends Clint and Billy will combine their musical talents to perform many of the timeless hits made famous by the master himself, including "Route 66," "Mona Lisa" and "Nature Boy." Clint Holmes was recently honored as a two-time 2018 Grammy nominee. He is a consummate entertainer, performer, recording artist, and one of the country's finest vocalists. Whether he is singing selections from the Great American Songbook, contemporary classics, or stirring original jazz pieces, every performance is a one-of-a-kind mesmerizing and unforgettable experience. Billy Stritch is one of the premier singer-pianists on the New York and national jazz and cabaret scenes. A chance meeting with Liza Minnelli in March of 1991 resulted in her asking him to create vocal arrangements for the record-breaking extravaganza, "Liza Stepping Out at Radio City Music Hall." From there, he traveled all over the globe as Liza's pianist and occasional opening act. In addition to his 25-year collaboration with her, Billy recently toured with the legendary Tony Bennett as his pianist and musical director. A solo entertainer in his own right, he has performed his own shows in concert halls and nightclubs across the country.
