Dan Hicks, a multi-talented musical genius,
fuses Django Reinhart with Texas swing,
adding a little North Beach ‘folk noir’
… and for spice, acid-inspired wit.
Dan also helped start the psychedelic cowboy look
with his band The Charlatans in 1965,
at the Red Dog Saloon in Virginia City, Nevada.
He likes to make his own gig cards.

I just posted a few others at the ‘Concerned Citizens’ Coalition Weblog (CCC BLOG)’
[aka Gregory Paul Michael Hartnell: gregoryhartnell.wordpress.com],
and at LA ROSA REVUE [goyodelarosa.wordpress.com],
links to which are now found in the comments section below.
These gig cards seem to be influenced by Dada and Surrealist ideas,
and remind me of similar graphic work that David Jure and
Roy Green have been doing here in Victoria over the years.
I’ve heard Dan Hicks with a number of different bands live
about a half dozen times over the years
in Victoria, Vancouver and San Francisco,
and it is always ‘an experience,’ as they say.
