Well, it's been a few days, but I'm still high from the wonderful
Dan & Co put on at the Newburyport City Hall Auditorium Saturday
May 17 2003. This was by far the best performance I've seen since
been on the road with the new Hot Licks.
It was a full house of maybe 200-250 happy Hixters. The Newburyport
Hall is much like an old theater with a wrap around balcony, complete
with a water stained velvet curtain (red of course).
The Hot Licks this time out were: David Bell on lead guitar, Paul
on bass, Brian (as usual) on mandolin & violin, Susan Rabin
Lickette on the right and I'm sorry but I was unable to pick up
of the other blond Lickette on the left.
Dan was in a great mood and so was the crowd . I've never seen an
audience this happy, seemed like everyone's feet were tapping.
The 'new' Licketts have expanded their vocal duties significantly
the last time I've seen the band (which was in January of 2001).
were right there with all the tongue twisters on Viper and Buzzard.
Wicked good stuff !!!
If anyone asked me what my favorite song of the evening was, I'd
say "Reeling Down". It was very close to the original
and gave me goose
bumps to hear it done so well, but then again they were all done
Here's my play list, it varies a bit from what they had intended
Is This My Happy Home
I Feel Like Singin (opened this by saying his roommate had been
Armstrong where he learned skat music)
That Ain't Right (mentioned this will be in the new CD which he
every 10 years or so)
How Can I Miss You (the animated version) I
Scare Myself (Brian and David blew the audience away)
Exactly Like You
I'll See You In My Dreams (from the Woody Allen movie/soundtrack
to Sweet and Lowdown (about Django)
Hell I'd Go
I was able to snag the play list after they left the stage and also
couple of bonus "cheat sheets".
Cheat sheet #1 shows the key lyrics for the new song they did titled
"That Ain't Right" Cheat sheet #2 is for "Willie"
which they did not do.

What a show, one of the best, but that's what makes Dan THE Man

Nice 3 hour drive.
A much better venue [than in Greenfield MA]. Newburyport City Hall
Auditorium is a great place to see a concert. We arrived early and
had front row seats.
was great chemistry that night between the
band and the audience. Everyone around us was singing along and
tapping their feet. Must have been a full moon!
was looking sharp in his red and black shirt and shiny black &
striped pants. Susan had on a tropical looking red skirt with sequins
sparkled in the spotlight. Robyn wore a little black skirt with
red and black top.
