Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks brought a wonderful show to The Belly Up in Solana Beach last Thursday night. Before the evening's performance, Dan & co. joined forces with Banding Together for a very cool pre-show gig, welcoming a few students up on stage to play with the band during soundcheck!
Banding Together is a non-profit that is dedicated to changing the lives of kids with autism and special needs with music by providing mentorships, scholarships and music therapy. Pairing Dan up with the students turned out to be a blast for all involved!
