Besides being stunningly gorgeous, Lilan's ability to play incredible music is unsurpassed. I'm so glad our venue has her once a month as I have no concept as to how she's not booked every night of the year.

Her music can be timeless or contemporary and all of it is with a heart and a soul that makes the crowd fall in love with her. I'd highly recommend her for any event from an intimate bar to a huge stage with a giant crowd.

I booked Lilan and her guitarist Andrew for a small dinner party for my husband's birthday. Lilan is a sweet and delightful (not to mention incredibly cool) woman who made the entire booking process easy. She and Andrew arrived on time, were lovely to me and my guests, and performed about a dozen songs in a mini-concert for my jazz/blues loving friends. Everyone was overwhelmed with how fabulous Lilan was and how equally fabulous Andrew was on the guitar. I can't underscore how amazing they were; they made our night (and my husband's birthday) truly memorable.

Lilan Kane and her band played by birthday party in the back yard. Not only is she classically trained, but she has the "it" factor as a performer. Her band is also not notch. If you want a great blues/soul/funk band and don't mind it your guests get up and dance, you can't go wrong with Lilan.
