Having supportive parents Bill was given a Synthesizer at 16. He taught himself the Keyboards, Guitar, and Bass guitar.

Sean McArdle grew up just outside of New York City, and gained his appreciation for 80's music from stealing Duran Duran cassettes from his three older sisters. His first album was "Business as Usual" by Men At Work, which prompted him to learn saxophone, and set him down the path that eventually led to the Retros. Sean has spent the last several years entertaining some of the Pacific Northwest's biggest venues while performing with successful Seattle Top 40's cover bands, as well as his own original projects. After enjoying the Retros on stage for many years, it is Sean's great pleasure to share his musical talents with one of Seattle's premier party bands.
