America’s loudest lounge singer Richard Cheese performs swingin’ Vegas versions of rock and rap songs, “swankifying” popular Top40 hits into retro vocal standards. Imagine Sinatra singing Radiohead, and you’ve got Richard Cheese & Lounge Against The Machine. Since 2000, Cheese has released 20 albums and sold more than 200,000 CDs; his music is available on iTunes, in stores, and http://shop.richardcheese.com.

Richard Cheese’s songs have been featured in the movies “Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice” and “Dawn Of The Dead,” on ABC-TV’s “Dancing With The Stars,” and he’s performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live, CNN with Anderson Cooper, ITV’s The Jonathan Ross Show, Jack Black’s “Festival Supreme,” MTV’s Say What Karaoke?, KROQ’s Kevin & Bean Show, Howard Stern, The Jonathon Brandmeier Show, Opie & Anthony, and as the house band 20 times on NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly. The lounge legend has played hundreds of sellout concerts all over the world, from Las Vegas to London, from Portland to Portugal, from Honolulu to Hollywood. With his snappy jazz trio, his tiger-striped tuxedo, and his enormous microphone, Richard Cheese presents the perfect mix of music, martini, and madcap. Viva Las Queso!
