Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks
It's a group that never enjoyed the commercial success that should have followed the critical raves it received.
But looking back, having Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks on campus in February, 1973 (senior year) was a pretty big lick given that the group had just been on national network TV (at a time when there were only three networks to watch each night).
And here is that performance on The Flip Wilson Show on September 29,1972.....
Having watched several of their videos on You Tube, Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks was the kind of band with a sound that had people literally dancing in the aisles. And while I was not present for the Vandy concert (my loss), with the performance being in Neely Auditorium I can see people doing exactly that... dancing in the aisles and even in the pews there.
So did you attend this concert and what do you remember? Please leave your memories below or on our Class Facebook page.
More Vandy concert memories to come. Your suggestions and memories are welcome.
