Family and friends are at the forefront of Clint Holmes' holiday concert in the Suncoast showroom.
His Friday to Sunday performance will be a mixture of holiday favorites and his own repertoire.
"It will have a holiday feel to it, which to me is about bringing family together," Holmes said.
The entertainer will sing his traditional Christmas songs: "William the Angel" and "Little Drummer Boy." His wife, Kelly Clinton, will perform "I'll be Home for Christmas." Gayle Steele, Holmes' sister, also has selected a few songs. Holmes and friends will sing Handel's "Hallelujah" chorus from "Messiah."
They are accompanied by musical director Bill Fayne and his five-member band.
As for Holmes — he'll be spending Christmas evening here with family, which includes his 93-year-old mother and three children who all live in the valley.
Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. shows are $30 to $50. For more information, call 636-7075 or visit suncoastcasino.com.
The Suncoast is at 9090 Alta Drive.
