Carol Pacey & the Honey Shakers is one of a very few female-fronted, all original Americana bands in the Phoenix metro area! Original and uncommonly upbeat music performed by up and coming singer/songwriter, Carol Pacey. With songs written in Americana's mix of folk, alt-country and rock and roll, Carol brings it all to her shows with enthusiasm, ease and pure joy. Originally from the East Coast, Carol moved out west and became enamored with what Arizona and Mexico had to offer. At her shows, she performs a collection of original songs, from poignant ballads to subtle rockers.
The Honey Shakers bring Carol's songs to life ... blazing up and down lead guitar is Andy Borunda, most recently from local indie band, I Me Mine and The Cyd & Andy Show, as well as Crazyblue and Obbligatto. Andy is an Arizona native and his main influences are Jimmy Page, Ace Frehley, and Slash. Burning up the bass is Mike George, also most recently from local cover band, Riff Raff. Mike is originally from Washington and his main influences are John Paul Jones and Chris Squire. Fearing no percussion style is Omar Cifuentes. Born in Logroño, Spain and raised here in Phoenix, he's been rocking several local bands including Bues and friends and Phelb Techs (Joseph Cash). Some of his main musical influences are bands Phoenix, Vampire Weekend, Maná, Sonicflood, Daft Punk, and the Very Best. Carol and her band can either play acoustic or electric.
