The band consists of four Lipsticks.

Mike Willis is the founding member of Pink Lipsticks and plays guitar, keyboard, and sings lead vocals in the band. In high school he joined a band called Buzzkill, a band way beyond its age. In college Mike joined The Cool Waters Band, who packed various venues before packing their bags for Colorado. After a few years Mike left the band and moved to L.A. to attend film school. Now back in his hometown, Mike formed Pink Lipsticks and is ready to rock the Midwest once again!

Bob Schmidt has been playing guitar since the age of 17. He has been in bands such as Sidecar & Waterlounge. Waterlounge is where Bob made a lot of noise in the 7 years the band was together. He has recorded 2 records, played over 200 shows, and packed venues all over the Midwest.

Bret Smith holds the groove on bass. Bret has 16 years of experience playing many genres but always returns to his first love - rock n' roll. He has played in many bands around the nation and overseas as he served in the Air Force including rocking the Republic of Korea as a founding member of the Hillbilly Renegades. The newest member of Pink Lipsticks is dedicated to making your body move with thunderous bass lines that never overpower but always complement the Americana rock 'n roll style of the band.
