The Shane Pacey Trio


The Voice and Guitar of the “Bondi Cigars”

One of the country’s finest Blues Triple Threats (Singer/Guitarist/Songwriter)

Shane Pacey – Guitar and Vocals

Dave Fester – Drums

Paul Blasi – Bass

Although Shane’s other band, The Bondi Cigars is still very much a going concern, Shane recently felt the strong urge to revisit the music that turned him on, when he first started playing and singing.

“No one throws down the blues gauntlet more robustly than this trio, which, next to its own, make songs decades old, live all over again….”

“Aligning with sounds of Peter Green and Chicago’s legendary Chess label. These guys take us along for the ride. Of course, it takes more than company to make a trio: it takes the pistol-like rhythm section of bassist Paul Blasi and drummer Dave Fester, which ensures these tunes land right in your solar plexus……”(SOS review November 2015)

2 BRILLIANT recordings

April 2015 saw the recording and release of the trio’s 1st album –“Watch Out!”– which spent nearly 6 months in the top 10 blues albums of 2015, as well as being nominated for “Album of the year” and “Best new act” in the yearly Chain Blues Music Awards. “This is a very tight, professional outfit, showcasing 12 tracks, filled with the early rockier, and swamp filled sounds from a bygone era. They need to be played; just to remind us why this music grabbed us by the throat all those years ago. The Shane Pacey Trio certainly does that; laying down the perfect platform as an introduction for the next generation of musicians – hopefully inspiring them to investigate, and delve deeper, into the history and music of these artists. Oh, and at the same time, re-energizing and satisfying the souls of the rest of us!” (SBS review Julie Fox – Watch Out!)

2016: Look out for newly completed 2nd release: “HELIOS”

Featuring 8 originals. This album will blow your mind ! (Release date August 26th)

Shane states “The main aim is to create something totally different to The Cigars”, a no-nonsense trip through the Blues back pages, all played with his customary attack and passion.
