Friday, March 18, Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks
The Palms Playhouse, 8:30 p.m., $25
Winters, CA 95964
Class is in session and the dishonorable Dan Hicks will be leading the mighty procession. His current round of shows, ridiculously dubbed the Kollege of Musical Knowledge, is themed around the greats of American music. During the musical journey, concertgoers will be treated to a wide variety of styles by such disparate artists as Duke Ellington, Chuck Berry and even Richard Rodgers. Sure, this show was probably a massive undertaking that has taken some years of Hicks and his band in preparation. But most importantly, the end result will be a show unlike any other. 13 Main Street in Winters, www.danhicks.net.
