Biography

“Neo-lounge the way it should be: sick and funny and affectionate and ironic. These nine guys can play jazz, too - smoky and slow - sadly, a deficit in the current wave of manic retro acts.”
— Boston Globe

“This is music for black-night-of-the-soul cocktail parties. The instrumental sextet behind Stenquist swerves expertly from no-wave dissonance to sublime lounge jazz at the drop of a pineapple garnish.”
— L.A. Weekly

“Twisted lounge mood that owes far more to Tom Waits than Combustible Edison. In other words, not jumping on the bandwagon, but trying to derail it somewhere in the Nevada desert.”

— Alternative Press

“Take a cool blend of jazz, bossa nova, funk, and beatnik swing, add the Jack Kerouac-style phrasing of frontman Tom Stenquist and you have Boston-based Lars Vegas, the perfect picture of ’90s lounge rock.”
— Chicago Sun Times

“The ultra-cool lounge-rock band Lars Vegas is so hip it hurts. Their outstanding debut, Nervada, is what Soul Coughing’s latest should have sounded like.”
— Sacramento Bee

“The good news is that Lars Vegas still has many things to say as the Lounge Nation fades away. At least the zeitgeist allowed Lars to release 1996’s Nervada, and now Smoking helps the guys prove that the band is more than thrift-store shoppers. They’re actually very intelligent musicians working in the only element that can sustain their interests.”
— New York Press

    Considerando que la canción más escuchada de este artista es Stay, y que la misma corresponde a un cantautor alemán de ese nombre, creo incorrectas las fotografías que pertenecen a otras agrupaciones de denominación similar (DJ Lars Vegas, Lars Vegas Trio, etc). He subido la fotografía necesaria.
