“The Guitar and Voice of The Legendary Bondi Cigars, Foreday Riders and PACEY KING & DOLEY is bringing it back home, with his namesake Band!”
In a time when the 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.
SHANE PACEY TRIO… are that rare (and becoming rarer!) thing…
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.
Played with his customary attack and passion, then add a killer Rhythm Section…
“this band hits you right in solar plexus”
The Trio is releasing their 3rd Album this October
“Who Made You King?”
After the success of “Watchout” and “Helios”, we hope to find a wider audience with this diverse selection of new original tunes. We loved making this record and are looking forward to road testing the songs.
One listen will justify why Shane won “Song Writer Of The Year” ’21 & ’22, with Sydney Blues Society… voted by our peers. We’re so proud. Come and join us at a show. We hope to see you out there supporting Live Music.
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)

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