Chicago Night life Awards 2016


The Third Annual Chicago Nightlife Awards (CNAs) kicked off on Tuesday, June 7th and held at Concord Music Hall. The event was hosted with the unfiltered dry comedic stylings of contemporary artist Jeremy Scheuch. His playfully blunt personality invited us into a night full of fresh faces and talented acts.

The endless characters that filled the room could only be put into a digestible description through absurdities of a caricature’s portrayal. it was a joy to see everyone in their element expressing just what it was that made them the Chicagoland gurus of entertainment. There were artists of all sorts including nightlife entertainers, musical groups, bartenders and dancers which had compiled the names on guest list. It was a night of pure exaltation complete with a cat walk on the red carpet.

Musical acts took the stage between each award presentation. Acts included; ProbCause, The Walters, Sleep On It, My Gold Mask, Light.Em.up, Derrick Carter, and JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound. While the genres of each act varied immensely from one to the next; they each captivated the audience within a unique description of emotion. Videos can be viewed on the official website http://chicagonightlifeawards.com

Khloe from the Kit Kat Lounge had also taken the stage as she entranced us with her dance and lip synced musical number. Her performance was executed in such confidence and represented all that is fierce in pink pumps.

Presenters were charmingly paired together teasingly bouncing back and forth from each other’s personalities. Presenters included Lucy Stoole who wore the most rememberable outfit of the evening. Hot pink veil and hair but don’t forget the beard! Kate Catalina singer song writer dressed as MC meets Slash complete with top hat presented with Danielle Colby from American Pickers. Damon Ranger grammy award winner and known for his work in BlackBox. Anthony John Aloysius Sacco magician who had almost gave the audience a heart attack as silly string shot up in chaos and Future Classic Space Rap artist Probcause.
