Take a trip through the eclectic songbook of David Bowie with Niki Luparelli and The Gold Diggers" - Boston Magazine "Want to see Bowie done cabaret style? We're pretty sure that no one's better for that than Niki." BostonBandCrush.org "'Boston's bustiest chanteuse' trains her headlights on dear David Bowie (backed by her retro band, the Gold Diggers) in an evening of cabaret-rock crossbreeding." - Time Out New York "Something mixed between Marilyn Monroe, Betty Boop, and Kathy Griffin"- Scene Reports "Incomparable Chanteuse Extraordinaire"- Telegram.com "Boston's Thoroughly Modern Marilyn" Providence Events "By the end of the night, Luparelli had pulled two pairs of maracas out of her cleavage; her corset must be like the Tardis."- the Boston Phoenix "Short of having Frank Sinatra himself walk out onstage I couldn't have asked for a more 1950s-era Vegas night out.- The Noise Magazine, Boston "Wow, you smell really good." Davy Jones, the Monkees, RIP "You're$%^&*@ hilarious." Steven Wright, comedian "If you run for mayor, if I'm still alive, I'll campaign for you." Former Providence Mayor Buddy Cianci website www.nikiluparelli.com @trickyniki www.facebook.com/nikiluparelliandthegolddiggers AWARDS Winner 2011 Sexiest Musician, 2011 and 2012 Best Jazz Act in Pulse Magazine Niki is also Miss December in the Narragansett Beer 2013 pinup Calendar. She appeared in the 2004 Las Vegas Comedy Festival, the Boston Comedy Festival 2002-2007, and was once told by Piers Morgan at the Hammerstein ballroom that she was "the most annoying woman [he'd] ever met." Add the finest musicians that alcohol can buy and you have Niki Luparelli and the Gold Diggers, the hottest Old Hollywood, Old Vegas, Vintage Nouveau Glam band around. Niki Luparelli and the Gold Diggers have opened for Frank Stallone, Gary Lewis (the Playboys), and Peter Tork (the Monkees), and have been told by many fanny-pack wearing slot players after their gigs at Foxwoods Casino, that they are totally "going to make it."
