Dave Koz returns with his 15th annual Christmas tour and is bringing along some of his famous friends.

The saxophonist’s yearly road trip to celebrate the holidays kicks off on November 23 in Sarasota, Fl making stops along the way in Ohio, Texas and California.

Koz will be performing hits from his 13 studio albums, including his latest, Hello Tomorrow, along with holiday favorites. He even promises a few surprises, including a tribute to Charlie Brown and the whole Peanuts gang.

“I think the Christmas season gives us all a chance to go back in time,” Koz said in a statement. “It’s so nostalgic–and music plays such a big role in bringing out that feeling.”

Helping him out on this year’s tour is pianist David Benoit, drummer Sheila E., singer Margo Rey and Javier Colon, who won the first season of The Voice.
