Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks, Holidaze in Hicksville

The Pioneers of the San Francisco Music Scene roll into town to celebrate Holidaze in Hicksville!

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.
