Dave Koz 20th Anniversary Christmas CD and Tour

Dave Koz and Friends 20th Anniversary Christmas also features guest vocalists Selina Albright,Javier Colon, Kenny Lattimore, Gabriel Orengo and Jeffrey Osborne

 Koz makes his Hallmark movie debut on Dec. 10, 8/7c

After twenty years of sold out Christmas tours and five celebrated holiday albums within as many years, saxophonist Dave Koz has done his share – and then some – to help to make the season bright. This year he has reassembled his original holiday lineup – pianist David Benoit, trumpeter Rick Braun and acoustic guitarist Peter White – for the making of Dave Koz and Friends 20th Anniversary Christmas, an album that features brand new recordings of classic Christmas songs.

Koz was also written into the Hallmark movie Sharing Christmas, which makes its debut December 10 on the Hallmark Channel. “The two main characters go on a date to a Dave Koz Christmas Concert. I had a big scene with the two stars, had to learn lines and was a nervous wreck. You have no idea. I’m at the point in my career where I have done this for a very long time, but I would have never thought that I would be acting in a Hallmark Christmas movie! But I love the challenge of something new.”

 

“Hop aboard the golden sleigh steered by Dave Koz & Friends for a pleasant smooth ride.”
