Richard Cheese takes the Las Vegas lounge act and makes it even cheesier with his swinging versions of rock, rap and Top 40 hits.
The Los Angeles-based singer and his snappy jazz trio with very cheesy names (Bobby Ricotta on the piano, Billy Bleu on the bass) take their cues from the Rat Pack days of Frank Sinatra and
Cheese, whose real name is Mark Jonathan Davis, performs songs such as "Hey Ya" from OutKast and "Creep" from Radiohead in swing style for full lounge effect.

Cheese's first songs found traction on KROQ-FM radio (106.7) in Los Angeles and the nationally syndicated Dr. Demento Show in 2000 when his first album came out. Since then, he has released 18 albums that are just as cheesy as the first.
