What a terrific turn-out on Saturday in the courtyard! The Cavemen were happy to see a few friends in the mix, including a representative of the Disney alumni loyalists and Wahoo Bob Chubboy of 790 AM WLBE.
Wahoo Bob has become such a big advocate for the band in recent weeks and we look forward to being featured on his “Pull My Finger” show at 9 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 17. Thanks, Bob!
The full unit was on the bandstand Saturday and we had a blast. Tie-dye Thurston unveiled his new wah-wah pedal, an auspicious debut. Other new sonic wrinkles are on the way.
We return to Yalaha on Sunday, Feb. 18, as a four-piece without drums. Hope to see you there!
