Holiday cheer in Southern California may not be the same as other parts of the country that has frigid tempartures, and a snowy white Christmas, but the spirit of Christmas is ever bit as festive as Dave Koz and friends provided a most enjoyable evening of songs, reflections, laughs and even an on stage marriage proposal serenaded by Dave Koz singing his current hit "This Guy’s In Love With You."


With the help of Jonathan Butler, Brian Culbertson, Candy Dulfer and Brian Simpson as musical director the tour mates, played for some of tinsle town tv stars  Dana Glover of "Desparate Housewives" and Jason Alexander of "Seinfeld" as well as guitarist Lee Ritenhour among others.

As each artist shared the stage at times as various duo combinations or Christmas medley's it was a nice gradual mix as each set was as entertaining as the last. A couple of notable stand outs was Jonathan Butler doing a solo intro with "Drummer Boy" on a totally dark stage with only a spotlight on him as he beats the conga's giving the rendintion the look and feel of being on the african plain.
