Event Details


“The Guitar and Voice of The Legendary Bondi Cigars & The Foreday Riders 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 – add a killer Rhythm Section… this band hits you right in solar plexus”  

“Who Made You King?”   

The Trio is releases their 3rd Album October 2023

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. We hope to see you out there supporting Live Music.

GD & The King Brothers - GD (Graeme Druce) of blues and roots outfits Doggn’It, The Throwbacks and 12 Bar Dudes has teamed up with Ron & Jeff King from the Foreday Riders for a new venture in the acoustic blues trio format. The King Brothers have long worked in acoustic mode as an offshoot of The Riders, to play smaller, more intimate venues. Impressed by Graeme & John Cupit in their duo ‘Doggin’It’ with their original take on the blues, the King Brothers became acquainted with the pair, eventually sitting in with them on occasion. 

More recently, Graeme has shown real interest in performing in the straight-ahead Chicago based blues and jump style favoured by the King Brothers. After finding compatibility in a casual ‘jam’ setting, the three decided to work up a night’s worth of material. What has emerged is a smorgasbord of Chicago shuffle blues, swing, jump and boppish instrumentals, plus New Orleans style rumbas and Latin flavoured tunes - all served up with GD’s unique voice and precise guitar work, Jeffs well-honed guitar and dobro licks and Ron’s immaculate Chicago style harmonica lines.

It all adds up to 100% Blues, 100% fun!
