It was a wonderful fall afternoon on Saturday in the courtyard at Yalaha Bakery. There was a big crowd, too, including some visitors that arrived on big tour buses, the kind that the Cavemen hope to travel in someday.
The set list on Saturday included a few Okrafest staples, a tune-up for the big festival this coming weekend. One of the highlights of our year!
Many thanks to the management and staff at the bakery for all the support over so many years, and thanks to the attentive audience. The band will return on Saturday, Nov. 3, and Jimmy Carl will take the stage solo on Sunday, Oct. 28.
