Prior to starting Steel Pony Band, Shar sang with the classic rock band MPT Pockets covering everything from Janice Joplin, Heart, Miranda Lambert, Maroon 5, Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton and Stevie Ray Vaughn just to name a few.
Shar's passion for singing and connecting with the audience is her inspiration to be a motivating performer.
"I love to find a happy place between the crowd and the band to engage in a moment of "forgetting". through music and entertainment." ~ Shar

Laci has had a musical history dating all the way back to when he was 7 years old. As a second grader, he started learning his first stringed instrument, the violin. He later started taking cello lessons at age 11. But it wasn’t until he turned 18 when he got his first electric guitar due to the influence of guitarist Brian May of Queen. Not having enough funds to purchase professional gear, he used a record player as his first guitar amp… To this day he's been playing the guitar with no formal training, everything he knows is self-taught.
Throughout the years he has played with various worship bands, the last of which was comprised of professional musicians. He then joined the band Steel Pony in 2014 and has been playing with them ever since, contributing to the band with his emotional and passionate playing.
"Small, but Mighty” says former bandmate Bart of Riptide. A graduate of the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Michèle has been in and around the entertainment business for most of her life. Originally from NY, she took her ﬁrst drum lesson in the fourth grade. From then on there was no turning back. Before moving to Florida and joining Steel Pony Band, Michèle lived in Los Angeles playing with many different types of bands from R&B to Jazz.
