Boston chefs, lip-syncing group create ‘Cuisine Rock’ album

We’ve all had those sleepless evenings where we wake up in the middle of the night and without being prompted flip on the television to see what’s on.

Usually, there’s a heavy dose of sitcom re-runs and infomercials — the latter of which consistently promotes some overpriced CD of an obscure rock band or folk artist.

In the spirit of that theme, lip-syncers Lydia Shire, Joshua Smith and Mei Mei recently collaborated on a food-themed version for Urban Improv’s Banned in Boston fundraiser.

Played to the tune of popular songs like “Everybody’s Working for the Weekend,” “Wake Me Up Before You Go,” “When a Man Loves a Woman” and “I Like Big Butts,” the talented trio used renowned chefs around the city to create a fictional “Cuisine Rock” album.

Suffice it to say, it’s amazing and something that might actually.
