Tyrone Shoelace’s music has been described as a “wild and sexy eclectic mix of reggae, funk and groovin rhythms that surge ones soul. The band is a talented mesh or cross-section of musicians from various decades that communicate well together and learn from each other to add to this band's success. There’s a positive interplay among the artists. The music at first had an almost funk reggae feel which then suddenly loomed into an explosion of energy with an experimental, trendy, edgy flare with its techno/synthesizer sound that surges excitement and spirit to the listener.” Annette Versage - Fairfield County Music Reporter
Thanks Annette, we couldn’t have said it better. Since the band's inception, Tyrone’s sound has continued to evolve into a wild mix of genres - rock, reggae, dub, funk, blue grass & disco-esque rhythms. The Band is getting ready to celebrate its 10 year anniversary with a series of upcoming shows and releases through out 2020 and 2021!
Chuck Chesler, the Musical Director of TSL has been playing in multiple bands in the Grateful Dead world over the last few years in addition to his work in Tyrone Shoelaces. Chuck is a wanted man these days playing shows with, Shakedown, Terrapin, a few others and of course Tyrone Shoelaces. This is only adding to the cache of Tyrone Shoelaces as likes, views, and interest continues to rise.
Tyrone Shoelaces will be touring Summer and Fall 2020 with a full horn section as the band recently welcomed new members and Simon Pajaro on Saxophone and Flute and the lovely and talented Miss Milo on Vocals. Miss Mílo has friends in high places having shared the stage with her mentor Jenn “Pipes” Durkin and is already lighting up the stage with her fire and enthusiasm.
Chuck was recently sponsored by Vintage Vibe Pianos. The same Pianos that Stevie Wonder amongst others use. This is a great honor.
