It was a three-piece unit, without drums and bass, on a lovely afternoon on Sunday at Yalaha Bakery.
The band was pleased to see the good friends that arrived to support, including a contingent representing Walt Disney World Watercraft and loyalists from DeLand, accompanied by their fabulous greyhound, King.
Turns out he’s a big fan.
In the smaller configuration, the band offered a few new twists on the set list, ranging from George Harrison’s “Isn’t It a Pity?” to the canine-inspired “Roll On, Lucy,” dedicated to the remarkable pug of the same name.
A good time. We return to the bakery on Saturday, May 12.
