“The Guitar and Voice of The Bondi Cigars bringing it back home”
In a time when Blues is in great danger of being swallowed by the all-encompassing term “roots music,’ the very concept of a Blues band seems to be almost a quaint idea.
THE SHANE PACEY TRIO… are that rare (and becoming rarer!) thing…
A dedicated Blues band, rather than a solo star with supporting musicians…
Shane Pacey – Vocals / Guitar
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, such as the guitar playing/singing of Peter Green and the short sharp style coming out of Chess Records in the 50’s and 60s.
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 Shane’s customary attack and passion.
Paul Blasi – Bass
One of Sydneys’ most respected players…with an expanse of knowledge and talent to add to our Blues world.
Paul has played with many great artists. (Including Bullfrog- Slewfoot – B’Dussy – The Leanne Paris Band – The Bluetongues and Red Slim)
But having him here – bringin’ it home – is where he belongs…
Dave Fester – Drums
The engine room is complete.
Dave has had 3 decades of Blues n’ Roots – constantly touring and sharing the stage with
many of the country’s Blues greats.
(Including The Bondi Cigars – Glenn Cardier & the Side Show – The PJ O’Brien BAND)

“Don’t expect a polite little band tapping away in the corner,”
says Shane. And he means it, too.
