Simple Cavemen set list: Yalaha Bakery, Sept. 21

Yes, another fun afternoon at Yalaha Bakery.

With the pleasant breeze and mild temperatures, it really seemed as if fall had arrived. It’s a lovely spot.

Plenty of covers on this afternoon because, well, that’s how we decided to roll. A very nice crowd, including at least one big fan of MacGyver’s drumming skills. The other Cavemen certainly agree with that gentleman!

The band returns to the bakery on Oct. 5.

Here’s what we played:

Set 1. I Know You Rider (Grateful Dead cover); Big River (Johnny Cash cover); White Freight Liner Blues (Townes Van Zandt cover); You Got Me Runnin’ (Jimmy Reed cover); Speed of the Sound of Loneliness (John Prine cover); Marlena; I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight (Bob Dylan cover); American Girl (Tom Petty cover); Like a Rolling Stone (Bob Dylan cover).

Set 2. Friend of the Devil (Grateful Dead cover); The Weight (The Band cover); Compilation Blues; She Belongs to Me (Bob Dylan cover); Mr. Bojangles (Jerry Jeff Walker cover); Cajun Moon (J.J. Cale cover); Horizon Moon; You Can’t Always Get What You Want (Rolling Stones cover).

Set 3. For What It’s Worth (Buffalo Springfield cover); She’s Gone; Hound Dog (Big Mama Thornton cover); To Love Somebody (Bee Gees cover); Isn’t It a Pity (George Harrison cover); I Dream; Get Together (Youngbloods cover).

Simple Cavemen set list: Yalaha Bakery, Sept. 8

After a summer hiatus, the Simple Cavemen reconvened at Yalaha Bakery to celebrate the departure of Hurricane Dorian and the prospect of fall.

It was a four-piece, with drummer MacGyver unavailable, so the band was perhaps 20 percent simpler, if you can imagine. We missed him and welcome his return when the band is back at the bakery on Sept. 21.

Yalaha Bakery is a Central Florida gem and a wonderful place to play. We’re grateful for the opportunity.

Here’s the list:

Set 1. Friend of the Devil (Grateful Dead cover); The Weight (The Band cover); Samosa Girls; One Last Gamblin’ Man; You Got Me Runnin’ (Jimmy Reed cover); Marlena; Sisters and Brothers (Charles Johnson cover); Isn’t It a Pity (George Harrison cover).

Set 2. I Know You Rider (Grateful Dead cover); Big River (Johnny Cash cover); Horizon Moon; I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight (Bob Dylan cover); Compilation Blues; Long Black Veil (Lefty Frizzell cover); Tupelo Honey (Van Morrison cover); She Belongs to Me (Bob Dylan cover).

Set 3. For What It’s Worth (Buffalo Springfield cover); Safe Inside the Mirror; You Ain’t Going Nowhere (Bob Dylan cover); Long May You Run (Neil Young cover); To Love Somebody (Bee Gees cover); I Dream; Get Together (Youngbloods cover).
