Nine-time GRAMMY® nominee Dave Koz brings his Dave Koz and Friends Christmas Tour 2013 to the Palladium at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel, Indiana on Friday, December 13th, 2013 at 8:00pm.
Now celebrating its 16th anniversary, this year’s Dave Koz and Friends Christmas Tour 2013 will feature 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, crossing effortlessly between R&B, jazz, popular and gospel music, 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, and Japanese born pianist/composer/producer Keiko Matsui, who has shared the stage with everyone from Stevie Wonder to Miles Davis.
Year after year, fans return for an uplifting, high-energy show that offers fresh, unexpected takes on seasonal favorites and hits from each of the artist’s careers.
“Dave Koz = Christmas,” said the El Paso Times. “As anyone who has seen more than one of Koz’s shows can attest, there’s a different energy each time he performs because he shares the stage with a rotating cast of characters.” “Not only did [Koz and Friends]…revamp the tinsel and garland mainstays, they offered an array of non-holiday tunes that beautifully captured the spirit of the season,” noted the Dallas Morning News in a review of last year’s show. “Though the cast changes every year, the warm feeling remains the same,” observed the Palm Beach Post.
