Rockin' the Yucca Tap Room, sort of

Last night, Andy, Mike and I trekked to the Yucca Tap Room to play a few acoustic tunes at their open mic, hosted by Jason Messer.  Like at the Sail Inn, we hope to take the Yucca Tap Room stage soon as a full band.  Funny though we should have been on the main stage last night, but instead we were set up over at the smaller side of the bar in a dark corner near foosball table...BUT we rocked as awesome as any acoustic trio could and folks seem to enjoy our tunes!   There was a band going on after us that we didn't get to check out, but we'd really appreciated their enthusiasm for us, so thanks, guys!  And thanks, Jason, for rocking awesome sound!  On the main stage was a band on their way back from SXSW...we meet again, SXSW!  I didn’t catch their name, but they sounded pretty great.  We have one or two more open mics planned to check out venues for the band...maybe I’ll share the next one so we can meet up?  Have a happy Tuesday!

Arizona Dragon Festival show just added

Thanks to our friends, the O'Henry band, we were selected to play at the Arizona Dragon Boat Festival on Sunday, April 1 at 3 pm.  For our fans who can't make it out to the late-night, over 21+ clubs, this is a great chance for you to check out Carol Pacey and the Honey Shakers LIVE!  Bring the kids and some cash (the event is free with plenty of food and drinks to purchase) and we'll see you soon!  Proceeds from the weekend event benefit the Special Olympics Arizona.

Rockin' the Sail Inn

Happy Thursday! Last night, Andy and I trekked to the Sail Inn to play a few acoustic tunes at their open mic. We hope to take the Sail Inn stage soon as a full band; sound at the Sail Inn is fantastic, thanks to Mr. Ken!! There was a duo last night who stopped by to play a set on their way to SXSW. I didn’t catch the singer/songwriter’s name, but she was awesome even though was so sick. I hope she’s feeling better today; she’s got quite an adventure ahead of her. There were two other groups last night headed to SXSW that we didn’t see on-stage, rather they were in the parking lot warming up, one of the perks of touring. We wish them all the best on their adventure!!! What about Carol Pacey and the Honey Shakers at SXSW? Ohhhh, I'd love that one!

Phoenix Film Festival show just added

See calendar for details!

Thank you!!!

What a Friday night it was at Hollywood Alley and the International Pop Overthrow Festival!  I cannot thank David Bash with IPO enough for the opportunity to play this event.  And ditto to Hollywood Alley for putting it on.  We shared the stage this night with Lunatics & Lovers, Pawl, Cait Brennan with Zen Lunatics, the Naked Chollas, Bad Kids and Dave Rave.  We were lucky enough to share Cait’s and the Naked Cholla’s fans as we were between these two groups – thank you, fans, for your support!!  Special thanks for Abraham Karam for the awesome photos and Andy for putting together the videos.  I cannot say it in words how totally unbelievable it is from me to know where I started just three years ago to this fabulous, kick-ass  band, so thank you to Andy, Mike and Omar!

Hollywood Alley ROCKS!!


Finally our whole name in print!!!  See you tomorrow night!!!  And I dare you, double-dog dare you if you will, to get yourself on the dance floor...I think we have the sweetest set to shake your honey!

March at the Xtreme Bean

Drum roll, please!

Our new drummer is Omar Cifuentes and you can check him out on our News page.  He brings a lot of fresh percussion style to our tunes and we are looking forward to playing with him.  Come out to see him at the IPO on March 2 (check out our Calender page for the info)!  We will be rocking a tight set and introducing a new tune, The Knitting Song!  You don't want to miss it!

Two weeks to review...


Last Saturday was great.  In the afternoon, Mike and I played at the Desperado Film Festival.  The night before, I attended the event to watch the movie at about country music star, Chely Wright.  It was awesome in all respects.  Chely will be the Grand Marshall at this year’s Phoenix Pride Festival as well as performer, and I look forward to seeing her.  Later Saturday evening, Mike and I played a short set at the Sail Inn and rocked as hard as a duo could, missing Andy a ton at both shows.  We look forward to going back to the Sail Inn with our full band!  Major shout outs to the lads at Paradise Valley Community College and Ken at the Sail Inn for making us sound awesome at these shows!!

Andy was back Thursday and joined me at ASU for their event, Alive at 5.  Some seriously dark clouds threatened our performance, but they had more bark than bite as it turned out and we stayed dry for a great show.  Last night we rocked the Rogue as a trio. I swear, we were there too!  Jake from Roll Acosta was super cool and we hope to meet up again.  The Foley’s were great; we didn’t get to catch Field Tripp.  Again, the sound was awesome, major props to Travis at the Rogue.  Thanks, new fans, for your time and comments.  We really appreciated it!  We look forward to going back to the Rogue with our full band, keep an eye out for us!

I’ll fill you in our new drummer next time and we’ll see you Friday night at the gallery!
