Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks

“Hicks is at the top of his game. A new studio album from Dan Hicks is like a new painting from Picasso.” ~ Daily Variety

With an eclecticism ranging from proto- psychedelia to western swing and jazz, and from Tin Pan Alley to country blues, Dan Hicks is widely acknowledged as one of the defining figures in American roots music. The former Charlatans band member became known as a front man for his own band, and went on to produce the critically acclaimed and commercially successful albums, Where’s the Money?, Striking It Rich and Last Train To Hicksville. He has appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine three times, and with the re-assembling of the Hot Licks, has proven that he will always be the king of hipster-chic.
