While jolly ol’ St. Nick is busy making his list and checking it twice, Santa Koz is coming to town. Multi-GRAMMY® nominee and saxophonist extraordinaire Dave Koz has become synonymous with the season, thanks to his high-energy holiday tour, which celebrates its 17th anniversary this year. “Dave Koz = Christmas,” said the El Paso Times and Examiner.com assured readers, “There really is a…Santa Koz,” calling the Dave Koz and Friends Christmas tour “a must see show.”
The 2014 Dave Koz and Friends Christmas tour will feature Koz along with three special guests: Jonathan Butler, who has earned accolades in the R&B, contemporary jazz and gospel fields, plus two artists who are new to the run – GRAMMY-winning singer-songwriter Christopher Cross, known for such Top 10 hits as “Sailing,” “Ride Like the Wind” and “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do),” and Soul Train award winner/GRAMMY nominee Maysa, who has released 10 solo albums and collaborated with everyone from Stevie Wonder and Chaka Khan to Incognito and Angela Bofill. The high-energy holiday show will feature the quartet’s fresh takes on holiday classics as well as other selections that beautifully capture the spirit of the season.
