Dave Koz Christmas
Wed, Nov 29 at 7:30 PM @ Ruth Eckerd Hall
This December, Jazz saxophonist Dave Koz presents the 20th Anniversary of his Christmas Tour with special guests David Benoit, Rick Braun, Peter White and 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.
Tickets are *$150, $100, $85, $50, and $35.
*$150 Dinner Package includes a premium seat and pre-show dinner. Artist does not appear at Dinner.
