Concert Description

Multi-GRAMMY® nominee and saxophonist extraordinaire Dave Koz returns with the must-see show of the holiday season. "By all rights, smooth jazz should own the holiday season, and the saxophonist Dave Koz is better positioned than anyone to make it so," said The New York Times in a review of his latest Christmas album, The 25th of December. Dave’s high-energy shows have made him synonymous with the season, with the El Paso Times saying, "Dave Koz = Christmas" and Examiner.com christening him "Santa Koz."

The 2015 Dave Koz and Friends Christmas tour will feature Dave along with three special guests. Koz will be joined by two tour "alumni" - the irrepressible Jonathan Butler, who has earned accolades in the R&B, contemporary jazz and gospel fields, and Dutch saxophone star Candy Dulfer, who was introduced with the smash pop single "Lily Was Here" and has since released 10 studio albums and performed with such artists as Prince, Dave Stewart and Lionel Ritchie – and the legendary Bill Medley, who will be touring with Koz for the first time. Medley, who co-founded The Righteous Brothers with Bobby Hatfield, has released 14 solo albums, including the GRAMMY®-winning Dirty Dancing. Together, the four musicians will put fresh spins on holiday classics as well as other selections that beautifully capture the spirit of the season.
