|Dear Richard Cheese Fans:
Because music piracy and file sharing have destroyed sales of our CDs,
we are forced to discontinue the manufacture of new Richard Cheese CDs.
The CDs listed below are OUT OF PRINT and will not be manufactured
anymore; once we sell all of the CDs on our shelves, they will NOT be
available for sale ever again.

This is not a publicity stunt. We are not a big record label with
nationwide retail distribution. We are an independent band. Richard
Cheese pays for recording, manufacturing, and packaging costs out of his
own pocket. Richard cannot afford to fund any more CDs, because of the
decline in music sales.
We rely 100% on fan support. We need more customers, or we cannot record
any more new songs/albums.
We cannot go on tour to raise funds, due to increased travel costs and
poor ticket sales. Touring is not an option at this time.
If you want Richard Cheese to continue recording music, please buy one
of the above CDs, or other merchandise, from our webstore at
Or, make a contribution to the Richard Cheese "KickStarter" fund at this
Please help by forwarding this message on and getting your new friends
to lounge against the machine with us.
Getting new fans to support our band financially means jobs for our
musicians and engineers, more business for recording studios, and more
music for everyone.
Please do you what you can to help spread the cheese.
If we are able to find funding, we will record new music. But the actual
manufacture of physical CDs is over. Get them while you still can.
Thank you for your loyalty and support.

|A LETTER FROM RICHARD CHEESE
Dear Fans, Friends, and Packaged Liquor Store Owners:
Thank you so much for
your kind support of our music and our band. We truly appreciate your
enthusiasm, loyalty, and swankiness.
I have just finished
performing my final farewell tour. This was REALLY it. I've been lounging against the
machine since our first CD debuted in 2000, and it's time for me to hang
up my tiger-striped tux. The concerts we played on our 2009 "MARTINI
HERO" tour were the final stops in those cities (see below).
Even though I'm retiring
from touring, I'll still be releasing new CDs. Our latest album
"OK BARTENDER" was
released in March 2010, and our fabulous live album,
"VIVA LA VODKA"
came out in 2009. These and the rest of our 9 albums are available
at iTunes and
Future albums include
"BACK IN BLACK TIE," "NUMBERS OF THE BEAST," "LET IT BRIE," and "A LOUNGE SUPREME."
I'm also producing a new album project,
"JOHNNY ALOHA: LAVAPALOOZA," which is now available
for pre-order at
In the future,
we will be working on some other new ventures, including a CD boxed set,
a book, a documentary/concert film, and a sandwich comprised of bacon,
lettuce, and tomato.
Please enjoy your visit
to richardcheese.com, and be sure to post a comment at
facebook.com/richardcheese. Thanks again for believing in The
Cheese, and keep swingin'!
Richard played his final concert tour
farewell performances in these
cities: San Diego, Honolulu, Washington DC, New York, Phoenix, Portland,
Seattle, Anaheim, New Orleans, Houston, Orlando, Boston, Bangor, San
Francisco, Toronto, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas..

bring you home soon. Keep swingin' and stay safe! ---RC
