Biography

Meet the Pink Shoelaces, a hot young classic variety band from north Florida. The Pink Shoelaces play their signature variety of music including rock, country, and praise songs at numerous events throughout the year. Members of the well-known Crawfordville band enjoy sharing their talents for the enjoyment of others! With the ‘Laces, expect to hear something old (The Beatles), something new (Hinder), something borrowed (Stevie Nicks) and something blue as in Shannon’s amazing rendition of Janis Joplin's "Me and Bobby McGee"!

The Pink Shoelaces (PSL) is a hot teen rock band located in the Big Bend of the Florida Gulf Coast. The Pink Shoelaces began as a brother/sister acoustic duo with Jay and Shannon Egler and has expanded to include drummer Patrick Lima, and Ben Mathews on bass. The Pink Shoelaces recorded their very first CD at the beginning of January 2007. If I Could Fly, contains eleven original songs with a wide variety of musical styles that should appeal to a variety of music lovers. Eight songs on the CD were written by Jay Egler and three songs were co-written by Jay and Shannon.

Jay Egler’s incredible guitar skills set the backdrop for PSL. He writes songs with a style that encompasses driving rock, country, bluegrass and beautiful ballads. Jay came up with the name of the band because he really does wear Pink Shoelaces! Shannon provides flawless vocal harmonies as well as performing beautiful solos. When singing Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On, Shannon frequently brings tears to the eyes of listeners and then energizes the audience by following up with Evanescence’s Bring Me To Life.

Patrick’s (Big Pat) is the “groove regulator” for Pink Shoelaces. Like Jay, Patrick is a self-taught drummer who really gets into performing on-stage as the heart beat of the band. Ben Mathews, newest member of PSL, plays bass and adds back-up vocals. Ben also plays bass at his church. He is a junior who also keeps busy with the cross-country team and National Honor Society.

Tony Rizzo plays the tenor banjo and bass for the PSL. He has played drums and bass for more than 35 years in many different bands. Tony, the adult in the band, is impressed with the high degree of musical proficiency and professionalism exhibited by fellow PSL members. Charlotte Lewis adds some fancy fiddle riffs to the PSL sound. Charlotte is a champion fiddle player who competes in Florida, Georgia, and Alabama in both classical and bluegrass competitions! She is a member of the Tallahassee Symphony Youth Orchestra and the Tallahassee Fiddlers. Charlotte has been playing the violin/fiddle since she was 3 ½ years old.
