There are a ton of incredible arts orgs in this community, but we can’t say it enough about the landmark Throckmorton Theatre, a rarity that does it all: top-notch theatrical productions, live music, classical concerts, some of the best comedy in the Bay Area and much more.Next up is the Hot Licks.
Dan Hicks, the legendary “King Of Folk-Swing,” passed away on Feb. 6, 2016. But his band, The Hot Licks, play on! The Hot Licks are original members of Dan’s backing band. They perform classic gems written by the Man himself as well as songs that Dan Hicks loved to cover in his own original style, called Folk-Swing.
The music is a blend of Gypsy Jazz, Folk and Swing with lots of vocal harmonies. The Hot Licks are dedicated to preserving the original sound and spirit in the way Dan taught them!
They carry the banner for Folk-Swing with his signature style that has inspired so many others.
