Nan Mason, Executive Producer
Longtime Chicago favorite Cabaret Diva, Nan Mason is the driving force behind the Chicago Sings format. The premier Chicago Sings event is to benefit New Orleans musicians displaced by hurricane Katrina. Future events will benefit various non-profits, rescue missions and other social causes.

Howard Reich of The Chicago Tribune has said, "If there is a tougher, gutsier cabaret singer in town, this listener hasn't heard her."

Her classics CD, "Something Cool," is in it's fourth printing, and she recently released her second CD, "One For My Baby," a tribute to composer Harold Arlen.

She is currently starring Tuesday through Saturday at the beautiful new Chestnut Grill & Wine Bar in the Seneca Hotel, just east of the John Hancock building on Chestnut Street.

Nan Mason has sung in countless nightclubs and corporate shows, made motion pictures, recorded jingles and captivated her audiences with a show that makes a smooth transition from pop tunes to showtunes and smooth jazz.
