If you are looking for an evening of great music mixed with adult humor, join Pete Fowler at The Coach House in San Juan Capistrano to see America's loudest lounge singer Richard Cheese perform swingin' Vegas versions of rock and rap songs and "swankifying" popular Top 40 hits into retro vocal standards. Imagine Sinatra singing Radiohead, and you've got Richard Cheese & Lounge Against The Machine.
The finger-snapping, liquor-lapping, night-capping crooner first stepped into the spotlight in 2000 with his LOUNGE AGAINST THE MACHINE album. This critically acclaimed CD featured "swankified" versions of alternative rock songs, such as Radiohead's CREEP and Limp Bizkit's NOOKIE, arranged for a big band sound. Thanks to radio stations including KROQ/Los Angeles, Z100/New York City, and the nationally-syndicated Dr. Demento Show, Cheese soon found an audience that shared his love of lounge music, including rockstar Brian Setzer, who hired Richard Cheese & Lounge Against The Machine to play at his private Christmas party with The Stray Cats!
Richard Cheese's songs have been featured in the movie "Dawn Of The Dead," on ABC-TV's "Dancing With The Stars," and he's performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live, CNN with Anderson Cooper, The Jonathan Ross Show, KROQ's Kevin & Bean Show, MTV's Say What Karaoke?, Howard Stern, Opie & Anthony, and as the house band 20 times on NBC's Last Call with Carson Daly.
The hardest working Dick in show business continues to perform sellout shows all over the world, from Las Vegas to London, from New York to New Orleans, from Hollywood to Honolulu. Thanks to eighteen albums, hundreds of concerts, 120,000 FaceBook fans, and a million martinis, Richard Cheese has earned a prominent place in that prestigious pantheon of lounge legends: Frank ... Sammy ... Dean ... and Richard Cheese.
