NINE-TIME GRAMMY ® NOMINATED SAXOPHONIST, DAVE KOZ ANNOUNCED AS SPECIAL GUEST ON BARRY MANILOW’S UPCOMING 2014 UK LIVE DATES
“Dave Koz…possesses a sterling, pure-tone instrumental technique” – New York Post
Over the decades, the saxophone has opened numerous doors for LA born Dave Koz. He’s played with such artists as Burt Bacharach, Ray Charles, Natalie Cole, Celine Dion, Shelby Lynne, Kenny Loggins, U2, Barry Manilow, Michael McDonald, Luther Vandross and Rod Stewart. Quite the superstar list.
As a solo performer however, he’s also a platinum-selling artist with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and sells out over 60 concerts a year in North America.
Having previously performed in the UK at Cadogan Hall in London as well as opening for the likes of Liza Minelli at the Royal Albert Hall, Koz has been personally requested as special opening artist for legendary US singer songwriter, Barry Manilow for his Summer UK live dates.
Says Manilow “I am a big fan of Dave and his music, and am thrilled to have this chance to share his talents with my friends in the UK.”
Says Koz “I’m truly honored that Barry has invited me to join him on this tour. He’s such a brilliant entertainer and the idea of performing with him at Wembley, The O2 and so many other amazing venues in the UK is just mind-blowing. We’ll have a blast together and I know that audiences will, too.”
With seven No.1 Contemporary Jazz Albums, and host of the award winning Dave Koz Radio Show (now in its 20th year), Koz will present a broad range of repertoire to his signature American smooth Jazz style, which includes such smash singles as “Got To Get You Into My Life,” “Put The Top Down,” “Castle of Dreams,” “Faces of the Heart” and “Honey-Dipped.”
