It’s going to be hot Wednesday; AccuWeather predicts temperatures topping 100 degrees. And Sticky Vikki & The Pinecones are just the band to take the afternoon a sizzling notch higher, playing rockabilly tunes from 5 to 8:30 p.m. at the weekly Picnic in the Park celebration in Central Park. The park is at Third and C streets in downtown Davis.
“These superb musicians bring an original and witty approach to Americana, country and rockabilly music that guarantees a rollicking good time,” a market spokeswoman says.
The band will perform selections from lead singer Vikki Lee’s just-released CD, “Arrows & Bows.”
