Backed by Bobby Ricotta on piano, Frank Feta on drums, and Billy Bleu on bass, RC&LATM have 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, lounge legend Richard Cheese presents the perfect mix of music, martini, and madcap. Viva Las Queso!

    I have enjoyed the smooth crooning of Mr. Cheese for years, but I must say, he hasn’t aged well.

    I never knew Richard Cheese played live. I always thought he was a fake computer generated musician like the Gorillaz. This would be a fun way to be proven wrong.

    I’ll keep this brief but I would be grateful to gouda this gig.
