The Mission College Concert Series started on June 15 with a performance by drummer Brian Andres and his Afro-Cuban Jazz Cartel. It was a summer-long series that also featured Grammy Award-winning musicians.
Latin Jazz musician Ray Obiedo performed on June 29 with singer Lean Tysse. They brought a unique blend of funk, jazz and soul to the Mission College campus.
On July 13, the Salinas-based Qiensave rocked Mission College with its high-energy dance music. The five-person band featured a combination of rhythm guitars, keyboards, drums, bass and vox instruments.
Following Qiensave on the Mission College stage was Oakland-based soul singer Lilan Kane. Her sultry voice serenaded Mission College Concert Series attendees. Kane is a graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston and has performed at several venues across the Bay Area, including Yoshi’s and the San Francisco Jazz Festival.
