Dave Koz & Friends will return in 2023 with a fresh incarnation of the Summer Horns tour, which will find the chart-topping saxophonist teaming up with two other sax greats – Candy Dulfer and Eric Darius.

The high-octane, feel-good summer show will feature songs from each artist’s catalog plus material from 2013’s Dave Koz and Friends Summer Horns and 2018’s Summer Horns II From A To Z. Both albums debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Current Contemporary Jazz Albums chart. Over the course of his career, Koz has amassed a loyal audience that turns out for performances on land and sea. He’ll be visiting Spain, Morocco and Portugal with three sold-out, back-to-back cruises in May 2023 and two sold-out cruises to Greece, Turkey, Israel and Egypt in 2024.

As Koz’s fanbase continues to grow, he’s found some unexpected supporters. In the article for Esquire, writer Jeff Gordinier chronicled his own journey from cynic to fan and observed, “The person who embraces the musicianship of the likes of Dave Koz is one who has found peace and has zero f*cks to give.”

Koz recently shared his new single, "Wrapped Up in Your Smile." He wrote the soulful romantic ballad with Philippe Saisse, who produced it. The pair also collaborated on Koz’s 2020 album, A New Day, and 2022’s Christmas Ballads.
