Pink Lipsticks / Bio
Pink Lipsticks are one of the Midwest's new and upcoming bands. They hail from the Bratwurst capital of the world, Sheboygan, WI. They easily grab the attention of music lovers and venues wherever they play. Drawing crowds and fans, they've been packing bars and small clubs. With many years of experience under their belts, they are geared up and ready to rock!
Mike Willis is the founding member of Pink Lipsticks and plays guitar, keyboard, and sings lead vocals in the band. Early on, Mike joined Buzzkill - a band way beyond its age. Mike also fronted the dirty, sloprock Barbecue Band in the 90s. In college Mike joined The Cool Waters Band, who packed various venues before packing their bags for Colorado. In moving back to Wisconsin, Mike accented the band Waterlounge with his keyboard abilities while starting up his solo career, which lead him to form Pink Lipsticks. Now in full force, Pink Lipsticks are ready to rock with you!
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 domestic and international bands including rocking the Republic of Korea as a founding member of the Hillbilly Renegades. Bret 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.
Ryan Brown has been playing drums since the age of 19 and pulsates the Pink Lipsticks with his talent. The self-taught drummer has played in a variety of bands such as Transparent Envelope, William Indian, and Otter. Ryan has recorded 3 records thus far and is poised to make Pink Lipsticks rise to the top!
