Legendary Kiwi entertainer ‘Shane’ first hit the New Zealand rock/pop music scene as a frontline vocalist with top mid-1960s band The Pleazers. Then followed solo residencies on the popular TV shows “C’mon” (1968-69), “Happen Inn”, and “FreeRide”. In 1969, Shane’s Loxene Golden Disc-winning song “Saint Paul” was a No.1 on the NZ charts for seven weeks and was also a Top 10 hit in Germany.
Subsequently, he fronted his own bands The Shane Group and Zonk before heading overseas to work in Europe and the UK in the 1970s. In addition to his late-1960s hit singles, “Saint Paul”, “Heya”, “Natural Man”, “Cuddly Toy” and “Lady Samantha”, Shane has released over a dozen albums, the most recent being the highly acclaimed “Full Circle” (2011), and he’s still actively touring the country and playing to appreciative crowds.
