Triple Decker

The Rogue in Scottsdale has organized three fundraiser shows for the band, Decker.  I asked if I could participate and it worked out for their third show, so I will be playing Monday night, a rare solo acoustic set.  I can't imagine being psyched for a big show tour then crashing on the road and wind up hurt and losing most of my gear.  I don't know the band Decker, but I can understand big loss and how good it feels when friends, family and strangers rally in support.  If you can't make this show, maybe you can make the show at the Sail Inn, Wednesday, September 12.

A new CPHS slogan for you

Americana R O C K S @ Hollywood Alley recap

Good Sunday morning to you!  We had a fantastic time at Hollywood Alley Friday night with our Americana R O C K S show and sharing the stage with The Frogstranglers and The Minor Injuries.  Both of these groups we found at ReverbNation on the local Americana charts, and after listening to their original tunes, we asked them to play a show with us.  Lucky for us, they agreed, and Hollywood Alley, always awesome, accepted our Americana R O C K S show.  We were lightly attended (go, Cards! And yeah you, Crescent, for what sounded like an awesome two day show), but no matter.  Each band Friday night rocked like it was a packed house and put on a great show!  Twenty years ago-ish, Americana bands owned this town and well, we’re bringing sexy, er, Americana BACK to the valley in a big way.  We hope to keep putting shows on like this with Americana rocking bands and bringing out the fans again who seem to be unsure what they will get for their $5 covers with the local talent…let’s just say to you, our new potential fans, that you will get awesomeness, bands who appreciate your effort to make the shows and tunes you can get into with singing and dancing.  Promise and see you soon!

EXTRA! EXTRA! Desert Ridge Marketplace show added

Were YOU one of our many fans standing with us in the July monsoon rain when we had to cancel our show at Tempe Marketplace?  Well, we have news for you!!!  We just added a show at Desert Ridge Marketplace, October 20!!!  If you're a Tempean (just saw this version, "Tempe-sian"), yes, this is a bit of a drive for you, but it is a great location for a full-family Carol Pacey & the Honey Shakers show!!


August @ the Bean

We had two shows lined up this month for the Bean and already played one, but we won't be able to play at our second show on the 31st show.  Our apologies if you already had plans to attend and we'll see you soon at the Bean!

Hollywood Alley show added


I am speaking for the entire band when I say thank you so very much for coming out to Tempe Marketplace last night.  Some of you were there before the weather deteriorated.  Others drove through the dust storm, while others stood with us in the wind and rain while we decided what to do.  We had friends, family and fans there from all over Arizona and Mexico, and we certainly did not want to disappoint anybody by not performing.  The venue folks maintained that the decision to play was up to us, but if we played, it was at our own risk.  With high winds, blowing dust, lightning and rain, we opted for safety!  And trust me, we were just as disappointed as you all.  We will try for another show at Tempe Marketplace soon as it is an excellent venue for the entire family to come to a show.  Thank you again and we hope to see you soon!
