Lilan Kane & Hella Fitzgerald: A Tribute to Ella Fitzgerald
An evening of jazz & cocktails with a tribute to the First Lady of Song from Lilan Kane and the 6 piece Hella Fitzgerald.
Kanbar Center for the Performing Arts
Fronted by the magnetic, soulful vocalist Lilan Kane (pronounced LEE – lawn), Hella Fitzgerald is a rollicking six-piece band bringing an infectious energy to vintage jazz, swing, jump blues, and classic soul styles.
They present a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald, the legendary “First Lady of Song” who inspired their name.
The Oakland-based Kane is a graduate of Boston’s Berklee School of Music whose career has included opening slots for the likes of Sharon Jones, Chicago, The Doobie Brothers, and Trombone Shorty. She has worked with the Jazz Mafia’s Cosa Nostra Strings and has recently released her debut album Love, Myself to a sold out crowd at Yoshi’s Jazz Club. Her vintage-tinged soul sound flows through the heartfelt original compositions, telling stories of love, loss, and self-discovery while they seamlessly blend R&B, funk, pop, and jazz.
Paul Liberatore, Marin Independent Journal writes of Lilan Kane: “Brilliant blue-eyed soul.”
In addition to performing, Kane is a dedicated educator, having co-founded the Own the Mic summer singing camp at Marin’s San Domenico School.
Cocktails, wine, beer, a selection of soft drinks along with coffee, tea and a variety of snacks and freshly baked goods available for purchase. Concessions may be enjoyed throughout the performance in the theater. No table service.
