KL: Kaught Lookin is Southeast Idaho ’s FAVORITE PARTY Band! Come EXPERIENCE the ENERGY of one AMAZING live show!

Kaught Lookin plays great Rock n’ Roll that makes you want to get out on the dance floor and not an hour will go by without you saying, “I LOVE this song!”

SLG: Tell us who's in the band and what instruments do they play? How long has this line-up been together?

KL: Kaught Lookin includes Rick Veilleux on lead guitar; Mark "Claw" Clawson bass guitar; Tony Roberts on percussion and Ed Horn on vocals. Current line-up has been together since November 2007.

Kaught Lookin formed back in 2006 when Rick and Tony, who played together in Exit 69 decided it was time to find a new singer, make some $$ and rock again. They recruited Jody Andersen, on bass, an old friend who had filled in for Claw, back in Exit 69 days. Then found a great new sound with Ed Horn, straight from Virginia. Jody left Kaught Lookin in 2007, just as Claw was returning from Seattle. Claw re-joined his Exit 69 buds and the rest is history, as they say.

SLG: Tell us where you're from and currently based in what town?

KL: Rick is originally from Maine by way of Canada and currently resides in Pocatello, Idaho. "Claw" has lived all over, but will claim Pocatello, ID, Pittsburgh, KS, and Seattle, WA as home, although he currently resides in Blackfoot, Idaho. Tony Roberts is from and currently resides in Pocatello, Idaho. Ed Horn is originally from King George, Virginia. Ed was in the Air Force and was stationed at Nellis AFB outside of Las Vegas, Nevada, and also lived in Tulsa, OK. Ed currently resides in Pocatello, Idaho.

SLG: Past shows or venues you'd like to brag about? Past or future shows in the Pocatello area?

KL: Kaught Lookin has played a few exciting shows around the area, including the 2007 First Annual Bigfoot Rendezvous Festival and the 2009 Snowmobile Hill Climb in Aspen/Thayne, WY.

Kaught Lookin is excited to announce that they are playing the POW-MIA Rally July 30, 2010, Friday, from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm at the Bannock County Fairgrounds.

We rock because you rock!!! When Kaught Lookin takes over you become immediately captivated by:

Rick Veilleux – the Canadian Guitar Wonder who can make your favorite Rock n’ roll tunes sound so much like the CD that you will think he’s lip-synching. And when he strolls around to your table, with guitar in hand, playing your favorite song, he won’t say much, but will charm you by flashing that gorgeous smile!

Mark “CLAW” Clawson – the bald-headed, kilt-wearing, foreign-language speaking, bad-ass bass player who makes everyone wonder “What’s he wearing under that skirt”? The one who keeps you guessing can teach you how to say “I love to drink beer” in Scottish or “I need my vodka” in Russian!

Tony “Animal” Roberts – the heartbeat who hits those skins with wild abandon, makes the kick drum sound like it’s coming right out of your chest and keeps the dance floor Rockin’ just for YOU all night long! Get ready to PARTY with this band and always be ready to lift your glasses high when he shouts “1-2-3 Sociable!” or “Hell Yeah!”

Ed Horn – the Voice from Virginia. Whether he is screaming his heart out to the latest chart topping rock hit, helping fans rub up against one another on the dance floor with a “pocket-polisher,” or amazing everyone with his A Capella versions of “Desperado” or “Beth” - here is one front man you will never forget.

SLG: Any comments about the local live music scene, the music industry in general? What do you think is the best way to get your music out there?

KL: Southeast Idaho is full of talented musicians. Most of the local music scene and band members are friends of ours, and we all support each other. The music industry is always changing and going through various cycles. But good rock n’ roll will always be there, exciting to listen to and make you want to dance.

When Rick, Claw and Tony started out together 20 years ago, it started with a dream to play just originals but they had to learn enough covers to be able to play the venues in Southeast Idaho. Eventually they had played their own songs enough that fans were singing along, dancing and even requesting them.

Kaught Lookin carries that on today as it is still all about being able to just do what they love to do – playing music and making the fans happy. Getting paid for doing what they love every weekend – that’s just icing!

SLG: Recordings? Will you have CD's or more for sale at the show?

KL: No recordings yet as Kaught Lookin, but they have been playing revived songs from the 2002 CD that Rick, Claw and Tony created as Exit 69. Back then, CDs were sold at shows along with other merchandise.

SLG: Is it something Kaught Lookin will do again?

KL: Time will tell. Ed now lends his awesome vocals and his own spin to those old songs, giving them new life and making them more like Kaught Lookin originals each time they are played. The Kaught Lookin boys have also been spending some of the down time writing new stuff. Keep listening....

SLG: How can fans contact you? Myspace? or another website?

KL: E-Mail: kaughtlookin@yahoo.com, Myspace: www.myspace.com/kaughtlookin.
