What once began as a side project to his main gig with the Charlatans, Dan Hicks formed Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks which soon overshadowed the Charlatans and went on to release four albums. Their tight swinging acoustic string virtuosity and hot three part harmonies that characterize their style, eventually gained enough popularity to propel them to tour internationally. They also garnered spots on some of the most watched shows on TV including Johnny Carson, Dick Cavett & Flip Wilson, leading him to land on the cover of Rolling Stone twice.  Hicks sings about ironic romances, barflies, innocent freedoms and flying saucer pilots in a refreshingly alternative tempo that jumps and swings with charm humor and warmth.

Louisiana- born, Texas- raised multi-instrumentalist Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown has been dishing up his unique blend of blues, R&B, country, jazz and Cajun music for more than 50 years.  A virtuoso on guitar, violin, harmonica, mandolin, viola, and even drums, Gatemouth has influenced performers as diverse as Albert Collins, Frank Zappa, Lonnie Brooks, Eric Clapton, and Joe Louis Walker.

If there’s a reason for the fierce devotion of their fans beyond the beauty and spirit of the Hot Club of Cowtown’s music itself, it can be found in the trio’s fresh approach to durable standards.  Like the giants who preceded them, the Hot Club doesn’t so much recreate as reinvent, animating quintessent-ially American music with a postmodern energy that makes it as current as the latest pop hit, at the same time laying bare the memorable melodies and enduring lyric themes that made these songs classics in the first place.  The Hot Club of Cowtown is playing hot string jazz for the 21st century.

Tickets for this performance are $37.50 ($28.50 for IMAC Members).  For tickets or further information on this performance, or on other IMAC programs, call IMAC's 24-hour Arts-Line at (631) 549-ARTS.
