Simple Cavemen set list: Yalaha Bakery, Feb. 8

Dancers!

There were dancers in the crowd on Saturday at Yalaha Bakery and they kept the band rocking for a good part of the afternoon.

What a rare and delightful treat!

It also was wonderful to see a couple of much beloved Cavemen loyalists, Dave and Mick, in the audience. The band was happy to offer “Roll On, Lucy” by request.

Thanks to all for such a terrific afternoon, especially the kind Yalaha Bakery staff for the longtime support. We love the place!
