Jazz Prodigy Opens for Dave Koz at Palace

Connecticut’s own up-and-coming Jazz prodigy Vincent Ingala will have the opportunity to wow local audiences, as well as one of the industries all-time greats, when he opens for multi-Grammy® nominee and saxophonist Dave Koz during the "Dave Koz & Friends: A Smooth Jazz Christmas" tour stop at the Palace Theater in Waterbury on Tuesday, Dec. 8.

The 16-year-old virtuoso and Holy Cross High School honor student will kick off an evening of jazz and holiday favorites, with a 6:50 pm opening act that showcases his high energy and crowd pleasing entertainment. Koz and friends will then take the stage at 7:30 pm.

A Prospect native, Ingala excels in playing saxophone, guitar, drums and keyboard. He began developing his musical abilities at the age of 4, and now possesses the unique ability to write and produce original songs, as well as the power to deliver a hard driving rock beat all the way to a sensual saxophone solo. In addition to his solo show, he performs with two other Connecticut bands, “Just for Kicks” and “Twist of Lime.” This past summer, he was invited to perform his solo show at the Las Vegas Hilton in Nevada.

"Dave Koz & Friends A Smooth Jazz Christmas" will feature a reunion of the original cast, including Koz, Rick Braun, David Benoit, Peter White and Brenda Russell. The quintet will perform hits from their respective catalogues and join together on a variety of holiday favorites, including many from their album, "A Smooth Jazz Christmas."

Tickets can be purchased by phone at 203-346-2000, online at http://www.palacetheaterct.org/, or in person at the Palace Theater Box Office, 100 East Main St., Waterbury. Groups of 20 or more qualify for special discounts and should call the Group Sales Hotline at 203-346-2002.
