America's loudest lounge singer Richard Cheese performs swingin' Vegas versions of rock songs. Imagine Frank Sinatra crooning a Rush tune, and you've got Dick.
Since 2000, Richard Cheese has been serving up a madcap mix of music and martini, wowing audiences with his swanky big band, his tiger-striped tuxedo, and his enormous microphone. Backed by his Lounge Against The Machine band, the legendary lounge singer has performed sellout concerts from Las Vegas to London, from New York to New Orleans, from Honolulu to Hollywood.
Cheese has also appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, CNN, Fox News Channel, MTV, VH1, Opie & Anthony, Howard Stern, and 25 times on NBC's Last Call with Carson Daly. Yes, the finger-snapping, liquor-lapping, night-capping vocalist is truly the hardest working Dick in show business.
With CDs like LOUNGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, TUXICITY, I'D LIKE A VIRGIN, APERITIF FOR DESTRUCTION, and THE SUNNY SIDE OF THE MOON, Cheese performs a "fromage homage" to the hottest hits in music. His loungey takes on songs like "Baby Got Back," "Yellow," "Creep," "Hot For Teacher," and "Chop Suey" are huge hits on morning radio, MySpace, and YouTube, and his cheesey version of Disturbed's song "Down With The Sickness" was featured in the 2004 movie DAWN OF THE DEAD.
Now, Cheese is back with his sixth CD, SILENT NIGHTCLUB, a collection of "swankified" holiday hits just in time for Christmas. This all-new album, released by Surfdog Records, includes 14 loungey covers of songs like "Holiday In Cambodia," "Do They Know It's Christmas," "Personal Jesus," "I Melt With You," "Like A Virgin," "Naughty Girl," "Imagine," and "Ice Ice Baby." Plus, Richard Cheese has recorded an all-new original song called "CHRISTMAS IN LAS VEGAS," destined to be a Christmas classic!
After six CDs, hundreds of performances, and a million martinis, Richard Cheese has earned a prominent place in that prestigious pantheon of lounge legends ...
... Frank ... Sammy ... Dean .......... and Dick.
