Dave Koz and Friends Christmas is an uplifting, high-energy show that features some of music’s biggest names jamming on fresh, lively arrangements of seasonal favorites, led by Grammy nominee and saxophonist extraordinaire Dave Koz.

Joining Dave this year are pianist-composer-producer Keiko Matsui, who has shared the stage with everyone from Stevie Wonder to Miles Davis; world-renowned singer Oleta Adams, who first came to prominence when Tears for Fears asked her to appear on their The Seeds of Love album and who has released eight acclaimed CDs of her own; and Jonathan Butler, who was the first black artist played on white stations in his native South Africa and has since earned accolades in the R&B, contemporary jazz and gospel fields. Together they’ll be making spirits bright as this cherished holiday tradition marks its 16th anniversary.
