The CheeseBergen's Bio
What happens when two washed up rock stars have a middle aged crisis? They decide to form a family band with their unwitting children. Enter The CheeseBergens comprised of Ides Bergen, father and drummer, Marissa Bergen, mother and bassist, Jesse Bergen, son and singer/lead guitarist and Anjelica Bergen, daughter and singer/guitarist.
Mama and Papa Cheese have been honing their skills for years playing the L.A. club circuit in bands to varying success. The Cheese Kids have been busy building their own resumes in rock schools in the L.A. area. Now they come together with their own brand of rock n' roll with punk and metal influences.
The CheeseBergens have been featured on countless radio stations and have gotten write-ups in many fanzines. They have played impressive gigs in and around the So-Cal area. Their first album, Do It With Cheese came out in 2018 and their follow up LP More Cheese Please was released in 2020.
“A family band delivering punk and metal originals. This ain't yo mama's rock n' roll...but it kinda is.”
“the CheeseBergens… the Bergen family with just the right dose of “cheese.”
“Hilariously brilliant...kind of like a heavy metal Partridge Family.”
"We think if you took the Brady Bunch, The Addams Family, The Muensters, and the Osbornes and few forgotten metal bands from the 1980's,and added a dash of the Ramones, you might come up with something like The CheeseBergens, though maybe not quite as endearing. They play a nice blend on punk and old school style metal and rock that, even though its not a new concept, it's still refreshing."

"More Cheese is reminiscent of the punk bands of the late 70's. That is the tune I am uploading for rotation on KONG."

"(More Cheese Please) comes in with in your face rock cooked and prepared in a way that only the CheeseBergen family can."
