Dan Hicks is widely admired for his songwriting and ability to combine multiple styles of music into a satisfying whole. Hicks and his band The Hot Licks will perform at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 10, at The Palms Playhouse, 13 Main St. in 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.

Beginning as a drummer in the seminal ’60s San Francisco rock band The Charlatans (credited with establishing the fabled San Francisco sound), and continuing with his unique and legendary Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks, Dan Hicks is widely acknowledged as one of the defining figures in American roots music.
The original Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks recorded five ground-breaking and Billboard-charting records for the Columbia, Blue Thumb and Warner Bros. labels. They toured worldwide, and Hicks appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine three times.

Hicks’ most recent album, “Live at Davies,” was recorded at San Francisco’s Davies Symphony Hall. “Live at Davies” includes appearances by special guests including David Grisman, Tuck and Patti, Rickie Lee Jones, John Hammond and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott joining Hicks and the Hot Licks on some of his biggest hits as well as some never before released gems.

Tickets are $25 and are available at Armadillo Music in Davis, Watermelon Music in Woodland, Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters and at the door if not sold out. For more information, visit palmsplayhouse.com or danhicks.com.
