Jan Peters (Improper Bostonian Best Cabaret Act 2005, Independent Reviewers of New England Best Female Cabaret Artist 2002, Bay Windows Best Cabaret Performer 2002) is a 1999 Eugene O'Neill Cabaret Symposium Fellow whose work draws from an extensive repertoire of popular Broadway and standard songs as well as material from promising new songwriters.
A Massachusetts native now living in Pennsylvania, Jan's cabaret work has been showcased at many of Boston's major venues such as Scullers Jazz Club, Club Cafè, and The Lyric Stage.
Recent performances include Cabaret Convention 2006: The Mabel Mercer's 21st Anniversary Celebration at Lincoln Center in New York, the debut of her new show, I Feel A Song Coming On at The Cultural Center Theatre in Port Charlotte, Florida, The Jazz On A Sunday Afternoon Performance Series in New Hampshire, and concerts at Babson College and Shanklin Music Hall in Massachusetts with celebrated theatre organist Lew Williams.
Jan's cabaret show Old Fashioned, Please! was named one of Boston's Top Ten (Bay Windows 2000 Cabaret Year In Review) and continues to receive critical acclaim. Updated for 2007, Jan will present Old Fashioned, Please! at The First Presbyterian Church in Beaver, PA to benefit The Compass School in Kikuyu Kenya, then take the show to Boston's Riverside Theatre Works as part of their month long cabaret festival.
In addition to her cabaret work, Jan performs throughout the country accompanied by ensembles ranging from intimate jazz groups to large swing orchestras and has appeared at many of Boston's best nightclubs and hotels.
Jan's debut CD, Somebody Come and Play (October 2002), continues to receive rave reviews; "An excellent debut." (Boston Herald); "the classic torch singer...a voice like fine wine...it is glorious." (John Amodeo, Cabaret Scenes, Bay Windows contributor). Her new CD, You Started Something was released in April 2005 to glowing reviews. Jordan Rich of WBZ Radio in Boston wrote; "Jan Peters has scored another great success performing material she was born to do."
