It’s all about the cheese when America’s loudest lounge singer Richard Cheese & Lounge Against the Machine return to Nevada with two shows at Club Madrid inside Sunset Station in Henderson on Nov. 13.

With his snappy jazz trio, his tiger-striped tuxedo and his enormous microphone, Richard Cheese combines music, martinis and madcap capers. His Las Vegas-area dates coincide with the release of three new albums that “swankify” popular contemporary songs.

“Swingin’ at the Boulder Theater” debuts in October, “Supermassive Black Tux” comes out in November and “The Lounge Awakens: Richard Cheese Live at the Mos Eisley Spaceport Cantina” hits stores in December.

Since 2000, Cheese has released 14 albums, including “Atlas Lounged,” which featured rare recordings, audio clips and unreleased tracks.


His songs have been featured in shows such as “Dawn of the Dead,” ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “CNN With Anderson Cooper” and more. 

Tickets start at $25 and go on sale on Sept. 4.

Tickets: Ticketmaster, (800) 745-3000
