About Niki Luparelli & the Gold Diggers:
Always sassy, brassy, and nigh to bursting from her bustier, Luparelli, cocktail in hand, rose to regional celebrity as one half of the neo-vaudeville comedy duo The Steamy Bohemians. She tirelessly tours casinos, clubs, and concert halls across New England performing lounge and pop standards with her shimmering band the Gold Diggers.
With her band, she has opened for Peter Tork and Mickey Dolenz of the Monkees, Denny Laine from Wings, and as a solo variety stand-up performer opened for Jane Lynch at Boston's famous Wilbur Theater. Winner of the 2013 NYC Ladies of Laughter competition, Niki made her national television debut in 2013 as a finalist on AMC's Showville.
Locally, you may have seen one of her many shows at Oberon celebrating such artists as David Bowie, Blondie, Madonna, Led Zeppelin, and Prince
