Halloween Show: Caddyshack

DP and Caroline

Caddyshack was David K. Aslanian Paul, Caroline Hostetler, Kelly Ockinga and JJ Hewitt.

1. Why did you choose Caddyshack?

David Paul: Well, Caroline’s gopher costume was a big motivator. But a deep love of Caddyshack and Journey and Keny Loggins helped!

Caroline Hostetler: It is probably the only time in my life there is a legitimate reason for me to play “I’m Alright.”

2. Describe the Halloween show in 3 words.

DP: Any Way Ya Want It!

CH: Best Shit Ever

3. What’s your favorite song from the soundtrack?

DP: I’m Alright

CH: I’m Alright!!

4. Was there a song you wished you could have played but you didn’t?

DP: Nah, the show was great as was

CH: I had fantasies of playing the Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture but that seemed a bit unrealistic.

5. What other Halloween show band would you have loved to be in?

CH: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly.

6. What other soundtrack that didn’t get picked would you have wanted to do?

CH: WAYNE’S WORLD!!!!! Some jerks called it early on but didn’t follow through. Same with Footloose. Really, a Loggins medley would have been amazing.

7. How did you all come together for this band?

DP: I’m in a band w Kelly and JJ so it was natural for CH and I to play w them

CH: We’re buds, and everyone has ties with Sacramento so we knew we could lure the other members down.

8. How often did you practice?

DP: 4 times

CH: Three times, and once the day of.

9. How hard was it to be the “out of town” band?

DP: Not that hard, Sac in the Fall is great and this is the funnest night of the year

CH: As the singer and as someone who could afford a plane ticket, not at all for me.

10. How hot was the gopher costume?

DP: Caroline looks pretty hot in it :)

CH: SO HOT. But not as hot as when Carl Spackler was bombing the shit out of me underground.

11.  What do you love most about the Halloween show?

DP: Music and Friends is a smashing combo

CH: Singing along.

12. What other Halloween show bands have you been in the past?

CH: Jefferson Airplane/Starship

13. What do you think next year’s theme should be?



Or maybe DO-OVERS, where you have to do a band that’s been done before, but with no overlapping members…
