A class all unto his own, Dan Hicks is a well-heeled singer-songwriter with an appealingly skewed sense of humor who pits his low and velvety vocals and the odd scats against a vibrant blend of jazz, folk, swing, bluegrass, pop and gypsy music. He’s been active since the mid-1960s and has a vast repertoire, but this WMNF-backed concert with his Hot Licks is sure to draw heavily from his 2010 holiday LP, Crazy for Christmas
. Hicks also plays Skipper's Smokehouse in Tampa
