FROM SMOOTH TO GROOVE-this summer’s hot ticket August 10

With the alliance of Marquee Concerts, The Blue Note and Smooth Jazz New Jersey, “Smooth” has morphed into “Groove” for the upcoming Dave Koz Summer Horns 23 Groove Cruise around Manhattan.  The spectacular Cornucopia Majesty departs from Pier 40. Thursday August 10th. Boarding begins at 6:30PM and sails from 7:30-10PM. Cash bar. Dinner available for purchase on board or in advance with ticket purchase. On site parking available.


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, Eric Darius, and guest vocalist Maysa Leak.

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
