Simple Cavemen set list: Yalaha Bakery, March 9

Another terrific afternoon at Yalaha Bakery.

A big crowd on hand, motivated partially by the bakery’s newly added Saturday craft show on the lawn. It’s a weekly fixture on Saturdays that is slated to continue through May, we’re told.

You should check it out.

Happily, some folks also came out to hear the Cavemen, including our friends with the standing request for Bob Dylan’s “I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight” and Jimmy Carl’s longtime Disney pal David Kranz. There also was a surprise appearance by the fabulous Linda and Fran, the latter one of the original Samosa Girls.

Yes, a genuine celebrity.

Many thanks to the folks at Yalaha Bakery for all the support over many years. The band is slated to return on March 23.

Here’s what we played:

Set 1. Friend of the Devil (Grateful Dead cover); The Weight (The Band cover); Marlena; Jukebox Serenade; Samosa Girls (dedicated to Samosa Girl Fran Coker); I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight (Bob Dylan cover, by request); You Got Me Runnin’ (Jimmy Reed cover); Who Do You Believe in Now?

Set 2. I Know You Rider (Grateful Dead cover); Big River (Johnny Cash cover); She’s Gone; One Less Gamblin’ Man; Isn’t It a Pity (George Harrison cover); Texas Wind; Compilation Blues; I Dream; Get Together (Youngbloods cover).

Simple Cavemen set list: Yalaha Bakery, Feb. 16

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.
