darling darling husband left this earth early this morning.
He was true blue, one of a kind, and did it all his own way always.
To all who loved him, know that he will live forever in the words,
songs, and art that he spent his life creating. He worked so hard
on each and every detail -- they are all pure Dan.
So, Duke, Benny, Django and Stephane -- he's on his way -- you'll
be laughing soon!

Relive Classic Dan Hicks & the Hot Licks Performances!
1999 and 2011, before social media had more or less taken
over, Dan Hicks fans (aka "Hixters") would send
in reports to this website about their experiences attending
live Dan Hicks & the Hot Licks performances. That led
to a webpage called "Show Reports", where these
wonderfully entertaining accounts were archived. There are
over 150 Reports available on the "Show Reports -- Eyewitness
Accounts of Dan in Action!" webpage. It is great reading,
guaranteed to bring back fond memories of Dan, and the great
times we all shared. Go
