Set Times:  6:30pm – 11:30pm

 

Oakland jazz and soul vocalist Lilan Kane returns to the Black Cat stage with a night of “Winter Romance”.   Lilan recently completed an East Coast tour with shows in NYC, Boston, and Philadelphia.

Her unique personal style seamlessly blends jazz, R&B, funk, and pop.  A graduate of Berklee College of Music, Lilan studied with Grammy award winning vocal arranger Donna McElroy and drummer/arranger Kenwood Dennard. She has a full-length album “Love, Myself” and EP “Wonder” produced by Michael Aaberg (Lalah Hathaway, Goapele) which received a song placement with Rope-A-Dope Records.
