Lionel Cole, the Platinum selling, and internationally acclaimed entertainer will take an elegant stroll down memory lane, tapping into new interpretations of your favorite songs from the 1930’s to today. From a storied musical family, Lionel is the son of Freddy Cole, a jazz vocalist, the nephew of Nat King Cole, and the cousin of Natalie Cole. He is a Fulbright lecturer and high-profile multi-instrumentalist from the new generation of the acclaimed Cole family.

Lionel will share stories about his time in the music industry, working with his idols, and growing up in the iconic Cole family. Nicknamed the “Kilted Crooner,” Lionel, an American soul with a jazz heart and blues attitude, will bring his smooth baritone voice to the 54 Below stage, alongside the Cole Legacy Band for all to enjoy!

For this performance the Cole Legacy Band will include:

John Di Martino on piano
Elias Bailey on bass
Sam Raderman on guitar
Tony Addison on drums
with special guest Mike McGinnis on woodwinds
