What happens when two would have been rock stars have a middle aged crisis? They decide to form a family band with their unwitting children.
The CheeseBergens is a band 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 Rock Rage Radio, I Love Heavy Metal Radio and have appeared on two Metal Babe Mayhem compilations as well as Dewar’s PR Summer Compilation. They have played reputable Los Angeles clubs…

My Fender Jaguar has the same color combo as your Jazz. Your bass is awesome. Great article,too!
Thank you for your support Rob! This is a Geddy Lee signature and actually my son’s but I kind of stole it from him when we started the band. I try not to use it when I don’t have to but it’s the best bass we have for recording and playing live. Anyway, we since bought him a 6 string (bass) to make up for it.
Wow, awesome article, Marissa!! It was interesting to learn that you did not want to become a family band from the beginning on! So, it was meant to be. I love that first picture of the band. You look so proud (and beautiful!).
Thank you so much Erika! Very kind words…I’m touched.
I can imagine how much it means to you that all of you share the same passion and live it together. This is wonderful!
Thank you Erika!
Most welcome 😊
I shall save my praise for my many tweets and associated tweets.
Okay, but a little more praise is always welcome…
Be fair…I bent over backwards with that excursion into Twiterland! Whatever, all the best of good fortune to The Cheesebergens.
I know it’s quite taxing for you having to figure out the newfangled this and that for every that and this. It is much appreciated.
My brain hurts.
Great article, great pics of you and the family. Too bad so many kids are over-activitied and have little time to devote to a band. But I think it’s great that you can do something together that you all enjoy. The family that rocks out together stays together. PEACE! 🙂
Thanks Joan! Fortunately, since starting our band, my son managed to get his own band together. Now, between our band, his band and my daughter’s band, we’re a rock n roll circus.
Oh I don’t know about you, Marissa.. but I only love rock music so I can sleep with the musicians. Ha! Kidding, of course. It’s a perk 😉
Finally a famous rock band I personally know (sort of) hahaha
Ha, ha! Too funny and..thank you! You’re too kind!
I knew you when. Kindasorta. 🙂
Well we are thanking you on the album…
Well…..THAT just about sounds right. 😉 (I crack me up!)
Always glad to read a CheeseBergens interview and glad you’re getting more exposure!!
Wow, nice work CheeseBergens! So impressed at everything you’re doing. And super happy I finally figured out how to log back into my wordpress.com reader so I can follow.
Thanks Hilary! And congrats on getting back into wordpress. I know those things are never easy! Ha, ha!
Already renowned from Newhall to Carson. the world is their oyster
Fun article, Mama Cheese 🙂
Thank you Joanne!
You and your family ROCK, Marissa. Really great article and I am just so happy that you and your family are following your dreams. 🙂 ❤
Thanks so much Amy!
You are so welcome!! 💖
Fan article. Any UK tours in the pipeline…?!
Ha, ha, I wish!
Loved the article and the family photos. ❤ Mama and Papa Cheese must be so proud of their Cheese kids. Wow! Good-luck on your album. 🙂
We sure are! Thank you!
llor ‘n’ kcor!! 🙂
Ha, ha! Took me a minute…
I can be a little backwards sometimes, that’s all. 🙂
How’s your day going?
When you make it to Florida, let me know.
I thought you were working on the world tour.
I can’t believe you’re in second. I think the Russians are interfering in this election too!
That’s what I’m sayin’!
Thanks, nice work CheeseBergens! So impressed at everything you’re doing.
I LOVE the Cheeseburgens! You guys are awesome!
Thank you Mama Mick!
I love that you had someone else write an article about you, Marissa and your family of Cheesebergens! You are always so generous with your visiting other blogs and supportive of other heavy metal bands. Thank you so much! This was a fantastic article.
I am so glad I voted in early April so I didn’t run out of time. 🙂
Thank you Robin! It is pretty exciting!
It was a fantastic opportunity and hope you find out you won!!
Hope it turns out you surpass #1 and get where you deserve. 😀
Amazing article! I’ve said this before…you guys are going to make it big and I’m so proud of you guys.
Do it with Cheese my favorite song by you guys. 🙂
Oh well, I don’t know about all that! We just kind of do it for fun at this point. My kids, now, they are another story. Got both of them in bands as well and, incidentally they are playing in Burbank on Friday night if you can make it down. Always something to promote here!
I’ll try. Hopefully I’m not working over time. 😦
Okay, show is at Burbank Music Academy. My daughter is on at 7 and my son is on at 9:30. Don’t expect many to stay for both bands though…
okay, I’ll keep it in mind. Hopefully I can try and make it. If not, I know there’s other times.
Yeah, hate to keep bugging you but it’s hard to get people out. Are you on FB?
Don’t worry your not bugging me at all. I actually love it. hahaha!!! 🙂
Unfortunately, I don’t have no Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. I’m a ghost. Just WordPress. 🙂
I had to come read some oldies. Come back to blogsville!!!!!!
Thanks for your support! I do miss it and have some song lyrics I’m thinking of publishing. I just have so much paid writing work now, it’s hard to just say, okay, don’t think I’m going to make money now since I want to blog! LOL
Oh, I had no idea you meant writing work. That’s great! Is it music related?
Not really. There is one site where I provide descriptions of different kinds of venues for a ticket seller’s site…some concert venues but also theaters, performing art centers and sports venues. It’s kind of interesting. I also work for an electrical supply site, a marketing company and drug and alcohol rehab. Those are my main gigs.
All online? Sounds good. You still writing for that music site? I guess I understand why you aren’t providing us links to your writing, although venue descriptions may be interesting haha. Anyway, good on you! I hope you find time for some creative writing too soon.
