Initially a vocal music student at Fredonia State College, Holmes left school for the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War.
He spent his 3 year enlistment (1967–1969) with the elite United States Army Chorus, and then remained in the Washington, D.C. area to launch his civilian career, singing in nightclubs up and down the East Coast.
Clint was the announcer for The Late Show Starring Joan Rivers (1986–1988), the initial broadcast offering of the then-new Fox Broadcasting Company.
Holmes has been a Las Vegas show attraction since the early 1970s. In 2006, he closed his headlining show at Harrah’s Las Vegas Casino, which renamed its main showroom for him. From 1990 to 1995, he hosted Honda Campus All-Star Challenge on the BET network, and, after the event became non-broadcast, continued to host the final matches through 2008.
Most of Holmes’ Vegas band members also appear in a locally popular R&B/jazz group, Santa Fe and The Fat City Horns.
Holmes has annually returned to Buffalo each March to co-host the annual Variety Kids telethon on WKBW-TV.
With the opening of the Smith Center for the Performing Arts in 2012, Holmes performs monthly in the Cabaret Jazz Theater.
