Get schooled by Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks. Dan Hicks and the Hotlicks will premier their new musical revue Kollege of Musical Knowledge. This show is the latest in a series of Dan Hicks created musical productions that have paid homage to the great American music songbook which in the past has included his tribute to the Singing Cowboy and his salute to the Folk Years.
This evening Hicks honors the composers and artists he most admires including Duke Ellington, Chuck Berry, Bob Dylan, Richard Rogers, Paul Simon and, of course, himself. Through the music and Dan's witty observations Professor Hicks and the Hot Licks will illuminate eager pupils to some music history, an impressive variety of musical styles, as well as present a repertoire of their much loved signature tunes such as "Canned Music," " I Scare Myself" and others.
Dan Hicks unique songwriting and blend of styles, masterful folk-swing guitar playing and unmistakable sense of humor have made him a cultural icon, landing Hicks on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine twice and provoking Tom Waits to say, "Dan Hicks is fly, sly, wily and dry" while Elvis Costello proclaimed him "an American treasure."
