Jazzmun is the stage name of Nichcalo Dion Crayton ("Nic"), an actor and nightclub performer specializing in female impersonation in the Los Angeles Area.


Originally from San Diego, California, Jazzmun made his first national television appearance on the talent variety show Puttin' on the Hits in 1984 in which he split his body half in male drag and half in female drag, lip synching as a "duet". Finding work immediately after that appearance for his theatric and modeling talents, he moved to Los Angeles and secured an agent. Since then Jazzmun has performed all over the world performing as either his stage character Jazzmun, his trademark Whitney Houston which he performed as in the female stage revue La Cage, Grace Jones or any number of other characters. In the late 1990s Jazzmun co-starred in the stage play Ask Any Girl as the character Mahogany Saint Ross, a name play-on-words to singer Diana Ross. Latina singer Gloria Estefan hired Jazzmun to perform in the music video of his remake hit Everlasting Love after seeing one of Jazzmun's performances. Later, drag icon RuPaul hired Jazzmun to also perform in his music video A Little Bit of Love which spoofed drag queens as aliens out to conquer the world. Jazzmun then released two of his own dance singles in 1997 on the Aqua Boogie label: "I´m Gonna Let You Have It" and "That Sound, That Beat". Later he produced another hit 2 Tired 2 B Shady which was later featured in Patrik-Ian Polk's highly anticipated and accomplished show Noah's Arc. After many years as a Drag Performer - female impersonator, Jazzmun has since come out (circa 2008) publicly as a transsexual woman. She has stated " it's not so much as a physical thing but mental and spiritual for her". Jazzmun has played Drag Queen, Transvestite and Female impersonator characters in film and television. Her first role playing a Transgender character on television came in 2003 on Nip/Tuck . [1] [2]
