Eddie Shuler was the owner and producer of Goldband Records, based in Lake Charles.

Goldband is most famous for being the label of Iry LeJeune, and because the label also issued minor, un-noteworthy lo-fi recordings of Dolly Parton, Freddy Fender, and Mickey Gilley before they became famous. All of these recordings would be reissued in exploitative packaging, year after year.

Shuler also produced at Goldband the first Cajun-flavored recording to make it into the Billboard Hot 100: "Sugar Bee" by Cleveland Crochet's band "The Hillbilly Ramblers". It went to #80 in 1961.

Eddie Shuler died in 2004.
