Twas 4 days before Christmas and all through the west there arose such a clatter, the Painted Cave Band was the best. We rocked the rooftop of Outlaws in Cave Creek AZ all afternoon to the twirling dance-delight of cowboys and biker chicks...rockers and yuppies. Nope, no Savile Row suits or old hippies this time. Just real people of all adult ages from this great southwest backyard playground of ours. The execs from our micro-management company (read: dour-faced bean counter types in buffed wingtips), Kablooie Management were shall we say...pleased? The band was enthusiastically invited back by the Outlaws' owner (the 'best bucking bar' BTW) and we had 'em dancing and partying their way to sugar plum land with visions of live local rock and roll fun in their heads. Needless to say, we thanked everyone on behalf of ourselves and the band and yes Virginia, we passed the audition.
