Lars Svendsgaard is a native of lovely Oakland, California, born there "a while back." His youth was misspent, as was so common at the time, but was accompanied by wonderful music.
Inspired by this, he opened The Retro Lounge with 'The Nurse' in October of 1993, enjoying an accolade since that time. He also enjoys other activities, but refuses to offer details, citing the need to check local regulations. He sends greetings and encouragement to all fellow humans, adding "Rocking music is good for us!," and “thanks for listening!”
