RIDGEFIELD, CONN.-- Eight-time Grammy nominee, saxophonist Dave Koz & Friends will bring the "Summer Horns Tour 2013" to The Ridgefield Playhouse at 8 p.m. Aug. 29.
Hailed by The New York Times as “a musician of unflappable rhythmic aplomb, which he happily squares against the airtight funk of his band,”, Dave Koz will be joined by Mindi Abair, featured saxophonist on the 2011 and 2012 seasons of American Idol who joined Aerosmith on their 2012 summer tour; Gerald Albright, known for his renowned solo recordings and performances with Anita Baker, Whitney Houston and The Temptations; and Richard Elliot, a former member of Tower of Power who has since forged a successful solo career.
Prior to the show, a wine-and-cheese tasting by No. 109 Cheese & Wine starts at 7:15 p.m. and will include an art exhibit by Ridgefield landscape painter George Stewart.
Tickets for the event cost $80 and can be purchased at the Ridgefield Playhouse box office or online at ridgefieldplayhouse.org
