<a href=Dave Koz and Friends Summer Horns in Broadway" border="0" bheight="100" width="100" align="right"> DAVE KOZ AND FRIENDS SUMMER HORNS
Florida Theatre
Back by popular demand and fresh off the success of their Grammy-nominated album, Dave Koz and Friends return with the Summer Horns Tour 2014. Koz and Special Guests Mindi Abair, Gerald Albright and Richard Elliot - four of today's pre-eminent saxophone players - will deliver an evening of high-octane hits, including songs from their new album, Summer Horns, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Current Contemporary Jazz Albums chart and has been in the Top 10 ever since. The Grammy-nominated Summer Horns is filled with imaginative takes on horn-era classics by such artists as Earth Wind & Fire, Chicago, Tower Of Power, Blood, Sweat & Tears, James Brown and Sly & The Family Stone. Koz - hailed by The New York Times as "a musician of unflappable rhythmic aplomb, which he happily squares against the airtight funk of his band" - 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 acclaimed 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. With support from Dave's stellar band, they'll get the groove on, playing songs from Summer Horns and the hottest hits from their individual catalogues, making this a not-to-be-missed night out for music fans!

Venus In Fur in Broadway VENUS IN FUR
Players by the Sea
New York director Thomas has adapted Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's erotic 1870 classic Venus in Fur for the stage. (Okay, his play is about masochism, but in a loving way.) After an uninspiring day of auditions, he is set to go home to his bossy fiance, when the door opens and in bursts Vanda, very late, very profane and very clueless. Nothing could be further from the refined goddess-like character he is seeking. And yet, she has the same name as the play's heroine . She persuades Thomas to let her read and, out of nowhere, displays a stunning command of the part. She even pulls authentic costumes out of her tote bag. The audition soon becomes a witty, sexy power struggle that totally unbalances the know-it-all director.

6th Annual Florida Gospel Legends Awards Show in Broadway 6TH ANNUAL FLORIDA GOSPEL LEGENDS AWARDS SHOW
Florida Theatre
Featuring a stellar house band, guest performers and special presenters, the Florida Gospel Legends Awards Show recognizes the elite voices in our community that have put song into the hearts of the faithful, buoyed spirits and become an example for generations to follow. Some have taken their singing beyond Jacksonville and recorded professionally. Some work locally and are largely unsung, drawing satisfaction from returning to the same choir loft Sunday after Sunday. In either case, they have used their gifts to rally congregations in their beliefs about a higher power, and the 6th Annual Florida Gospel Legends Awards show recognizes their contribution to our community.
