Dave Koz Christmas Tour
Dave Koz’s performance at the Balboa Theatre is part of his 20th Anniversary Christmas Tour, for which he’ll be accompanied onstage by pianist David Benoit, trumpeter Rick Braun, guitarist Peter White, and Dallas R&B singer Selina Albright. The production is staged in conjunction with a newly released 20th-anniversary Christmas album featuring Koz backed by the Portugal-based West European Symphony on 11 classic holiday tracks, including “Winter Wonderland,” “Feliz Navidad,” “Christmas Time Is Here,” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” the latter featuring Albright. The album also immortalizes Koz, Benoit, Braun, White, and guest Jeffery Osborne performing their popular concert medley of “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” mashed with Kenny Loggins’s 1977 pop gem “Celebrate Me Home.”
This will be the sixth time Koz has staged his Christmas show at the Balboa, with all but one of the previous shows having sold out (and probably the only reason 2009 had empty seats was because Koz performed the same concert that December at Pechanga).
