Dave Koz
20th Anniversary Christmas Tour

With special guests
David Benoit

and introducing Selina Albright

Two decades ago, GRAMMY® nominee Dave Koz — a nice Jewish boy — launched his first-ever Christmas tour. Now, fans and families across the country await his arrival with the kind of anticipation formerly reserved for St. Nick himself, earning the saxophonist extraordinaire the nickname “Santa Koz.”

This year’s 20th anniversary tour promises to be extra-special, reuniting Koz with two members of the original lineup — David Benoit and Peter White — and Rick Braun, a guest on many of Dave’s holiday jaunts, dating back to the early years. Newcomer Selina Albright will also join in the festivities. Together, the five remarkable artists will perform fresh renditions of Christmas classics as well as a Chanukah medley and hits from their respective catalogs.

“By all rights, smooth jazz should own the holiday season, and the saxophonist Dave Koz is better positioned than anyone to make it so,” observed The New York Times while The El Paso Times said, “Some might say it wouldn't be Christmas without Santa, but in El Paso, it's not Christmas until Dave Koz comes to town.”
