“(Yeah Yeah Yeah) opens with the wildly sizzling "Do You Think Someday," ... the amazing thing is that this song sets the velocity for the entire album and it doesn't let up once - there's not an obligatory slow song in the bunch. It's truly unrelenting.”
"The rustic rocknroll of Carol Pacey & the Honey Shakers would have been a good fit with the crowd of the old Tempe Long Wong's, which I guess is now the old old Wong's. Earthy and earnest without any of the frills, Yeah Yeah Yeah captures the band's raw barroom musicality. The album drops on April 22nd but the band will be celebrating the release on Saturday, April 26th, in downtown Tempe as part of the Tempe Music Revival (more here). Live and loud is my preferred format for Carol Pacey & the Honey Shakers so I suggest procuring your copy of Yeah Yeah Yeah at a show. You can listen to an early track from the album here where, conveniently, show dates for Carol Pacey & the Honey Shakers can also be found."
““Music is important to Tempe’s vibe. Our city is home to some fabulous bands, like the Gin Blossoms, the Pistoleros, Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers and now, a new generation of bands such as Banana Gun, Jared and the Mill and Carol Pacey and the Honeyshakers,” Tempe City Councilmember Joel Navarro said. “Tempe Music Revival gives people a chance to hear some of this great music and encourages creative bands to play here.””
"One of the ten local shows to see in January...Lead by charismatic front-woman Carol Pacey, Tempe’s Honey Shakers offer a driving brand of Americana, alt-country and rock and roll that should appeal to any Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers fan.They’re set to release their debut album later this year. Be sure to get there early to check out locals 13 to the Gallows, Treasurefruit and the Minor Injuries."
“Today is the kicker, to be able to chat with Carol Pacey and the Honey Shakers. Carol is the front woman for the band and if honey is sweet- then its consistency is also a victorious Americana blitz of kick butt formulation, as Carol Pacey and the Honey Shakers give a raucous glow to the alt-country, folk, rock n roll mix.”
““Fool,” the first single from Carol & the Honey Shakers’ first full length album is rip roarin’ Americana track with a healthy dose of Alt-Country thrown in for good measure. Pacey tells a very good girl-power story and the musicianship is terrific. If the rest of the album is as good as this track, I am sure all of our honey will be shakin’. Look for the album late 2013 or early 2014.”
"You guys were amazing last night!!! Blew my mind!"
"If you thought "Upbeat Americana" was a misnomer, think again...and check out Carol Pacey & The Honey Shakers, whose rockin' tunes will make you feel really good! We're very glad to welcome them back for their second straight IPO Phoenix!"
“A little folk and a lot of rock 'n roll and pop makes up the cool, Americana sound delivered by Carol Pacey & The Honey Shakers! The band is really tight, and Carol has quite a powerful, assured voice! This is a band guaranteed to make you dance!”
