Aubrey captivates audiences and delivers originality to everything modern in music; And 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. One not to be missed.
Every online ticket purchase comes with one (1) digital download of Dave Koz’s upcoming album, “Dave Koz and Friends Summer Horns II.” The album will be released June 22nd.
