Dan Hicks and his Hot Licks
The live version is just as bad but a lot more interesting! What I like about Dan Hicks is the stage theatrics and the unapologetic, unspoiled quirkiness. Here, Dan Hicks describes the music he makes:
“My music is kind of a blending. We have acoustic instruments. It starts out with kind of a folk music sound, and we add a jazz beat and solos and singing. We have the two girls that sing, and jazz violin, and all that, so it’s kind of light in nature, it’s not loud. And, it’s sort of, in a way, kinda carefree. Most of the songs are, I wouldn’t say funny, but kinda maybe a little humorous. We all like jazz, so we like to play in a jazzy way, with a swing sound you know, so I call it “folk swing”. There are a lot of original tunes that I’ve been writing through the years, so that has its personal touch on it."
