About

Shane is from Limerick city in Ireland. He left school at 17 and moved to New York City .This is where he had the privilege and experience of Sasha and John Digweeds first and complete legendary Twilo residency. He saw Sasha & John play their very first record at this historic club!! Between sneaking into a Billy Nasty gig at 16 years old and the Twilo experience, this is where Shane picked up his long life bug. Shane first Started playing house parties and lounge bars around Queens for a year and a half. At 19 with a fake ID he then moved to San Francisco and helped promote and held nights at a club called Spackle or otherwise known as 1028 Geary(now the Element lounge) in the famous Tenderloin Neighbourhood. This is where San Francisco's great Danny T was resident who Shane played with weekly along with top notch guest djs . It was an after hours club that played house music mostly,except on Thursday nights which Shane called "FIXATION" a progressive, techie house night which lasted a year. Any of the locals will tell u Spackle was a seriously cool club in its day. Shane and Robbie Cronin threw one the biggest party in its day at the well established "The Edinburgh Castle" also in the famous Tenderloin Neighbourhood!!. Shane has played along side some of San Francisco's best djs but one of his most groundbreaking gigs was playing in the new mega Levis store in Union Square.This is where he had the pleasure of playing records a few hours before the man himself Carl Cox and DJ Dan at the grand opening. Shane got this invite from Michael Anthony who came on the scene in 1995 and pretty much exploded! He has played in every club in San Fran holding residencies in most clubs Including 1015 Folsom Ruby Sky and Snow Drift. Michael is now the Music Director/Resident Dj @ supperclub one of San Frans sexiest and classiest Clubs. Spundae records put a dj booth on the second floor of the Levis store and had San Frans best and young talented djs playing sets every day.Shane had the pleasure of djing there once or twice a week for 3 months and playing alongside Michael Anthony regurlarly . Spundae Records was one of the biggest record stores in San Fran and was all connected to Jerry Bonham and the global super club Ten15 on Folsom. Shane also threw parties with the legendary Johnny Brett of Fiddlers Green who threw most of the best boat parties in San Francisco with top class dj Keith Reilly. At 21 when he got back to New York Shane continued his FIXATION night around the village(manhattan)@ The Leopard lounge ,Gatsbys, ZanZi bar and The Mean Fiddler in Hells Kitchen. The last few years he has taken a pain staking leave of absence but that's all over as he is now living back in Ireland and is attacking the club scene as we speak.Shane hope's to see ye when he's out and about playing records!!!!!!!!
