Dave Koz has assembled a powerhouse line up of Brass Instrumentation for the Summer Tour Season of 2018, with Special Guests:  Gerald Albright, Rick Braun, Richard Elliot and Introducing Aubrey Logan.

Following the highly successful previous Summer Horns Tours, this year’s tour will have the same high-level energy delivering hits, including songs from the upcoming new album, Dave Koz and Friends Summer Horns II: From A to Z. The first Summer Horns release debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Current Contemporary Jazz Albums chart.

Hailed by The New York Times as “a musician of unflappable rhythmic aplomb, which he happily squares against the airtight funk of his band,” Koz will be joined by:

  • Gerald Albright, known for his acclaimed solo recordings and performances with Anita Baker, Whitney Houston, and The Temptations;

  • Rick Braun, chart-topping trumpeter, who has collaborated across genre's with Rod Stewart, Sade, and REO Speedwagon;

  • Richard Elliot, a former member of Tower of Power who has since forged a successful solo career;

  • As part of the stellar musicians on stage, Koz is excited to introduce Aubrey Logan known for jammin’ on her trombone or sailing through a song with her nothing-held-back, multi-octave vocal instrument.

  • Finally, guitarist Adam Hawley, named both Smooth Jazz News’ and JazzTrax’ Debut Artist of the Year.

Playing new songs from the forthcoming Summer Horns release, as well as songs from their individual catalogues, this live show is sure to be one of the hottest shows this summer and not to be missed.
