Our Humble Beginning

Thirteen years ago on Clippinger lane,  the neighbors would later say,  “You could hear noise rattling the cocktail shakers way down in the valley below.” 

Somewhere in America... about two and a half hours south of Canada... people of the Mohawk Valley vibrate at a different frequency. 

They come down from the mountain;  down from the hillside,  down to the valley to feel the mystical energy  

which transforms to vibrations that resonate from these journeymen as we’ve come to know as CAUT!ON.    


Chad Plantz,  Michael-Bell Meinert,  Billy Carman,  Rick Gerken,  and John Dugan intuitively elevate a musical adventure leaving smiles on the faces of fans and musicians alike.    

Rooted in Rock,  rhythm and blues,  deep cuts,  B-sides,  and fan-approved originals that have stood the test of time! 

CAUT!ON’s showcase is fueled and inspired by Hypnotic electric Blues served with a side of Country jam and Rockabilly Jazz. 

From vinyl to the stage, members of CAUT!ON’s musical contributions include: 

The Allman Brothers band,  Dickey Betts,  Boston,  Tracy Lawrence,  Trace Adkins,  Foghat,  Exile,  Warren Haynes,  Matt Abts,  Keith Anderson,  Si Perry,  The Outlaws,  Skip Litz,  Lee Roy Parnell,  Gerry Babb,  B.B. King,  REO Speedwagon,  Styx,   Marshall Tucker,  Lynyrd Skynyrd,  Loren Barrigar,  Los Blancos,  Tanya Tucker,  Sweethearts of the Rodeo,  Terry McBride and the Ride and many more!

When you hear the noise resonating from the valley below,  come on down,  you’re the next contestant on the CAUT!ON show!
