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 the hot three part harmonies that characterize

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.
sings about ironic romances, barflies, innocent freedoms and

newest release "Beatin the Heat," his first in nearly
twenty-five years, has guest appearances from Brian Setzer
guitar, Elvis Costello on vocals, Tom Waits, Rickie Lee Jones
as well as the Divine Bette Midler, in which they ALL

off center point of view with his quirky and playful
melodies, perfectly compliment his trademark lyrics: a medley
comprised of complex rhymes and jive vocabulary.
IMAC’s personal fave of Dan Hicks lyrics asks, "How can

as part of the tour promoting this new album, promises to
be one to remember.
