Dan Hicks earned a reputation as a true original with his signature eclecticism and humor. As the originator of lively “folk jazz,” Hicks blends the best parts of jazz, swing, and country into his own unique style that fellow rocker Tom Waits calls “fly, sly, wily, and dry.”
The original Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks recorded five groundbreaking and Billboard-charting albums. They toured worldwide and Dan appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine three times. Today Hicks, with female backup singers, “The Lickettes,” presents his usual droll humor and impeccably-written tunes, incorporating Western swing, Gypsy folk, bluegrass, and bossa nova.
