KXCI 30th Anniversary Event: Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks
Dan Hicks and The Hot Licks play The Rialto Theatre Thursday December 12th in a KXCI Presents, 30th Anniversary show. Dan Hicks and The Hot Licks bring their annual extravaganza, Holidaze In Hicksville, to Tucson featuring a unique mix of acoustic pop, folk, jazz and swing. Doors open at 7pm Thursday. Tickets and information for Dan Hicks and The Hot Licks at RialtoTheatre or 740-1000.
Live at Davies is a more-than-worthy addition to Hicks’ already massive body of work. It is an irresistible nod to Dan Hicks’ undeniable musical legacy, and a potent reminder of all of the musical inspiration that this Great American Songwriter has spawned. Revered by, and also having collaborated with, such legendary artists as Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, Bette Midler, Brian Setzer, Willie Nelson, Jimmy Buffett, and Rickie Lee Jones – Dan Hicks serves up his unique fashion, attitude, and swagger that are embodied in his eccentricity and totally unique sound. His counter-culture appeal, which has twice landed him on the cover of Rolling Stone, has always been rooted in his songwriting. His lyrics have been touted as some of the sharpest-tongued, driest-witted, and subtly hilarious bits of irreverence ever committed to rhyme. He sets these lyrical gems to quirky tunes that trade on a bagful of jazz chords and an irresistible rhythm.
