Niki Luparelli and the Gold Diggers / Press

"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

“W ith a stage persona that is a mix of Marilyn Monroe, Bette Midler and Dean Martin, Worcester's Nicole "Niki" Luparelli has been wowing area audiences with her ditzy blondness, bawdy brassiness and lovable (let's hope pretend) drunkenness. And now she is ready to take her act to the next level. Whether it's the timeless medley of "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" (from "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes"), Madonna's "Material Girl" and "Big Spender" (from "Sweet Charity"), or the to-die-for version of Britney Spears' "Toxic" sung in French, Luparelli knows how to whip a crowd into a frenzy and make everyone in the audience feel special.”

“Bleach aficionado and chanteuse, Niki Luparelli, whether with the Gold Diggers or the Speakeasy Combo has made it her boozy mission over the last 3 + years to make Cabaret cool again. When she's not playing songs from the 30s and 40s, she's revamping modern songs to make them sound more, well, vintage. This is her lounge lizardly cover of Brittney Spears' Toxic en francais. Featuring the dapper Dan Burke (of Gamble and Burke) on piano, Lower Clef Geoff on upright bass, and Greg Prendergast on drums. It was recorded and produced at Vemplore Studios by Dorian Gatej. French Translation by Melissa Kooyomjian. You can catch her acclaimed Cabaret act at Nick's on Millbury Street on Saturday, November 13th, or at the Atrium at Citizen for her swanky 80s Thanksgiving Eve show on Wednesday, November 24th. She will also be performing with the Gold Diggers opening for Peter Tork of the Monkees at Boston's Super MegaFest on Saturday, November 20th. www.nikiluparelli.com”
