Yes, it was one for the books on Saturday at Yalaha Bakery!
A big crowd, thanks in part to a very groovy craft show out on the lawn. Special guests in the audience included a relatively rare appearance by two (!) Cavemen wives as well as the one-and-only Commander Coconut, accompanied by former Sentinel colleague Terry Irwin.
Terry, if memory serves, was actually one of the famed Samosa Girls. Alas, she arrived too late to hear the band sing about that charming group. Next time, Terry!
Many thanks to the fine folks at Yalaha and the attentive listeners. The band returns to the bakery on Saturday, March 9. In the meantime, Jimmy Carl will take to the bandstand for a solo performance on Sunday, Feb. 24.
