For 50 years the NiteKings have kept the Doo Wop music alive and they are still going strong. On November 17, 2014 the group was inducted into the entertainment Consumer’s Exchange Hall of Fame and they celebrated that evening at Rhythms Kitchen in Las Vegas. It was a huge turnout of friends, family and fans that came out to honor the Nitekings.
Tony Cedola, Skip Petronzio, Victor Moea, Eddie B, Angelo Mastreio, Red Michaels, Chris Jacobs and John Falbo are the current NiteKings who entertain and mesmerize the fans that come out to see them perform. Rich Perez is the founder of the NiteKings, and fills in periodically and concentrates on managing the group, along with Skip Petronzio who co-produces the show with Rich Perez.

Rich was born in Pontiac, Michigan and had a large family consisting of six sisters, one brother and a mother and father who loved all of them. His father played the saxophone and those musical notes have remained with him for decades and that was the foundation of his musical career. Their lives were filled with music as they grew up. His life story is beautifully written in detail by Arlene Krieger, as narrated by Rich Perez in “The NiteKings a Legendary Band”. I encourage everyone to read this heartwarming, loving story of the wonderful Rich Perez. Rich is an amazing talented man and people love to be around him. He will be happy to personally autograph his book at his gigs at the Bourban Street Cabaret at The Orleans and at Sam’s Town. 
Arlene Krieger has recently written books on Tony Sacca Las Vegas Ambassador of Entertainment and a book on Little Anthony. The books can be purchased on

The NiteKings have appeared in many major Las Vegas Casino’s and are currently playing at Sam’s Town every Sunday 7:00-11:00 pm and at The Orleans on Wednesdays 4:00-8:00 pm. I went to see them at The Orleans and not only did the Doo Wop sound sweet, their outfits were beautifully tailored and they were the picture of perfection.           Video

The showroom was filled with people dancing and you could see the nostalgic reminiscing of the audience as the soulful singing of the NiteKings filled the Casino showroom. The music brings back many good memories of the past.
