Before a show, after a show or between Winter Fest shows, Mama Kin is the perfect place to have some delicious food, a great artisanal cocktail and a great “hang.” We’ve worked with Mama Kin to provide great music each Thursday (Free) and Friday (just $10) during Winter Fest.

The soulful Oakland-based vocalist Lilan Kane brings you her latest project, Lilan Kane Sings Nancy Wilson with her signature vocal blend of jazz, R&B and blues. With classic renditions of Nancy’s iconic songs as well as fresh rearrangements, Lilan and her band honor one of the greatest vocalists of all time.

A Berklee College of Music graduate, Kane has sold out numerous residencies at Yoshi’s Oakland and SFJAZZ, as well as performances at Minton’s Playhouse (NYC), the French Quarter Festival, Concord Pavilion, The Mint (LA) and the Fillmore Jazz Festival.

Kane has sung with Pete Escovedo Latin Jazz Orchestra, and opened for Hall & Oates, Lenny Williams, Freddie Hughes, The Doobie Brothers, Chicago, Sharon Jones, Trombone Shorty and Morgan james. Her songs have been featured on KCSM, WGBO,,, and Her new single “TKMO” pays homage to the challenges of quarantine as well as one of her favorite artists, Roy Ayers.

The SoFA entertainment district’s newest venue, Mama Kin offers the perfect trifecta of food, drinks & live entertainment in the former Cafe Stritch space, a storied location for live jazz. Enjoy a full bar and cuisine that’s a fusion of American classics and modern Mexican culinary flourishes. Leave boring behind with a selection of offerings that rises to the level of Mama Kin’s diverse musical performances in San Jose’s most interesting business district, where creativity and social life thrive.
