Subject: South Boston
can just imagine my surprise when I recieved a fax at work promoting
'First Summer' at Carson Beach in So. Boston.
First of all I wasn't sure if Dan was still kickin' and second South
Boston? I am sure I was one of the only people there that had even heard
of Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks.
Regardless, Dan was fabulous and his band was soooo tight. My love for
Dan and his band spans nearly 3 decades (ugh). Way back when in a small
New England town myself and a group of friends were true devotees. One
of those gals now sings with a band doing very eclectic numbers. One
of my favs is Reelin. I kept yelling from my spot on the beach for Dan
to sing that tune but he must not have heard me!! Anyway, I waited after
the show and one of the Lickettes was nice enough to escort me to the
area Dan would emerge. He graciously signed my CD that I bought for
a friend and a paint chip (I was in the midst of decorating) for me!!.
am looking so forward to seeing the band again and am thankful that
Dan is still as good as ever!!
