Dave Koz & Friends
With Mindi Abair, Jonathan Butler, Kieko Matsui and introducing Sheléa
lineup subject to change
In a career that spans more than three decades, legendary and Grammy nominated saxophonist Dave Koz returns to the road this Holiday Season for his 21st annual Dave Koz Christmas Tour 2018. Special Guests joining Dave this year will be: Mindi Abair, pop/blues saxophonist/singer who will be making her first Christmas Tour appearance; South African guitarist/singer, Jonathan Butler, who returns for another wonderful time with Dave; and Japanese keyboard sensation Keiko Matsui.
The tour, now in its 21st year, has received nationwide critical acclaim since its 1997 inception. After last year’s highly successful 20-year anniversary Christmas Tour, Koz’s 2018 Christmas Tour promises to bring fresh renditions of Christmas classics—as well as a Chanukah medley!—and hits from his respective catalog. Koz has logged nine No. 1 albums on Billboard’s Current Contemporary Jazz Album chart, including 2015’s Collaborations: 25th Anniversary Collection (Concord Records), and received nine GRAMMY nominations. His five holiday albums include 2017's Dave Koz and Friends 20th Anniversary Christmas and 2014’s The 25th of December.
“By all rights, smooth jazz should own the holiday season, and the saxophonist Dave Koz is better positioned than anyone to make it so,” - The New York Times
This year’s lineup marks just the latest in a long list of artists with whom Koz has collaborated over the years, including Burt Bacharach, Ray Charles, Natalie Cole, Celine Dion, Stevie Wonder, Gloria Estefan, Luther Vandross, Shelby Lynne, Kenny Loggins, U2, Michael McDonald, Rod Stewart and The Foo Fighters.
“Some might say it wouldn't be Christmas without Santa, but [here], it's not Christmas until Dave Koz comes to town.” – The El Paso Times
