Richard Cheese and Lounge Against the Machine @ the Crystal Ballroom

First of all, the most exciting aspect of this show at the Crystal Ballroom was that there were seats!  It was Friday, I was tired, and I wasn’t looking forward to standing for several hours.  But hark!  There were seats.  We sat. It was heavenly. 

The opening act played some nice cowboy-style music, as you might guess from their outfits.

This is Bobby Ricotta, Richard Cheese’s keyboardist/pianist and music arranger.

Frank Feta, drummer

Billy Bleu

And Richard Cheese himself.  

“What’s a Richard Cheese show like?” I asked Matt on the way there.  He didn’t know.  This was round two of our Cosmic Tripster tickets, and Matt picked the concert.

It turned out to be pretty entertaining.  Aside from singing lounge covers of pop hits, Richard Cheese also harassed the audience, had a Q&A session with audience members, and recreated the song that was featured in the Lego Batman movie (all five seconds of it.)

Several women expressed a desire to know Richard Cheese carnally, and a stripper from the audience danced on stage.  I suspect these things happen at every concert, as they seemed to be taken in stride.

All in all, it was a very good night at the Crystal Ballroom.

  1. Richard Cheese! There’s a name I hadn’t heard in a long time. I didn’t realize that all of his bandmates had “cheesy” last names. I’m thoroughly amused that women were fawning over this guy. I guess a swoon-worthy voice is a bonus when it comes to romance.

    1. I only noticed the cheese names when I was typing up the post. How Mr. R. Cheese came to be himself was kind of interesting. I also learned that when typing up the post.
