Holz also received a glowing concert review in the June issue of Smooth Jazz Magazine for his May 9th show at Catalina Bar and Grill jazz club in Hollywood, California. A full length DVD was shot of the concert and will be part of the band's next album release slated for mid 2018. As an endorser of Paiste cymbals and Canopus drums, Holz's latest album features his jazz fusion style and was mentioned in the June 2017 issue of Modern
