Dan Hicks & the Hot Licks

“So few truly original figures exist in pop music that Dan Hicks should be a national treasure.” – San Francisco Chronicle

“Dan Hicks is the eternal hipster, purveyor of the drollest and most swingin’ tunes the rock generation ever enjoyed.” -Star Tribune

Singer-songwriter Dan Hicks is truly an American original. Since the early 1960s, Hicks has deftly blended elements of swing, jazz, folk and country music to create the appealing sound he sometimes calls “Folk Jazz”.

The lyrics of his songs range from the simply sublime to the sublimely ridiculous, all presented with his uniquely skewed and inscrutable touch.

Dan’s irresistible sense of rhythm, hip lyrical styling, laid-back vocalizing, and infamous on-stage wit will make most who listen fans for life.
