Two dynamic musicians, saxophonist Dave Koz and bassist and vocalist Larry Graham have combined forces to present a powerhouse show at The Cabot.
Saxophonist extraordinaire Dave Koz and legendary singer/bassist Larry Graham Jr. of Sly & the Family Stone and Graham Central Station, will be touring together for the first time this summer. The soulful, high-octane “Side By Side” run will feature the pair performing the hottest hits from their respective catalogs with backing from a stellar group of players.
A nine-time GRAMMY® nominee, Dave Koz has charted nine No. 1 albums on Billboard’s Current Contemporary Jazz Album chart, including 2015’s Collaborations: 25th Anniversary Collection (Concord Records), which features some of his most memorable creative partnerships – including duets with such artists as Stevie Nicks, Rod Stewart, Michael McDonald, Barry Manilow and Luther Vandross – and features three new tracks.
As bassist for Sly & The Family Stone, Larry Graham Jr. helped give the band its distinctive sound with his “thumping and plucking’” technique (widely known as “slapping”). He also contributed vocals on hits such as “Dance to the Music” and “Everybody is a Star.” Together with the other members of Sly & The Family Stone, he was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and also received the Rhythm & Blues Pioneer Award. He has been honored with GRAMMY® nominations for his work as a founding member of Graham Central Station and as a solo artist. Graham has also recorded with Aretha Franklin, led Eddie Murphy’s band Psychedelic Psoul and performed alongside Prince.
