Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks bring ‘Tangled Tales’ to The Palms on Saturday

By
From page A9 | November 14, 2012 |

Dan Hicks will be joined by his band The Hot Licks for an 8 p.m. concert Saturday at The Palms Playhouse in support of Hicks’ latest album “Tangled Tales.” Tickets are $25; The Palms is at 13 Main St. in downtown Winters.

Hicks is an American original. Since the early 1960s, he has deftly blended elements of swing, jazz, folk and country music to create the appealing sound he sometimes calls “folk jazz.” The lyrics of his songs range from the simply sublime to the sublimely ridiculous, all presented with his uniquely skewed and inscrutable touch.

Hicks’ irresistible sense of rhythm, hip lyrical styling, laid-back vocalizing and infamous on-stage wit bring a vibrancy to both his recordings and his performances.

On Saturday, Hicks & The Hot Licks will promote “Tangled Tales,” a collection of compelling and witty tunes that show why Tom Waits called him “fly, sly, wily and dry.” In vintage Dan Hicks form, “Tangled Tales” mashes the outlaw swing music, insightful charm and brilliant melodies that have endeared him to audiences and fellow artists for four decades with his signature understated melancholy-with-a-swing.

Tickets are available at Armadillo Music in Davis, Watermelon Music in Woodland, Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters, online at tickets.com and at the door if not sold out.

For more information, call 530-795-1825, or visit palmsplayhouse.com or danhicks.com.
