Click HERE – a nice writeup of me from Kayt Lucas of the Kayt Lucas Band

I have been fortunate enough to get to know Kayt, and she has asked me to back her up on some of her songs. On her recent live streaming contest, I helped her open her show for the first two tunes. She’s also working on doing some of my tunes with me – we’ll see how that turns out – stay tuned.

In the meantime, she is doing some research for a songwriting project, interviewed me, and wrote the following article.

Thanks Kayt!

Hicks & DAwe at The Old Nick


On Monday February 3rd, We have been honoured to be invited back to do a set at Elana Harte’s M-Factor Mondays at the Old Nick. With one set, we’ve compressed a whole night’s worth of goodness into a dozen tunes that will literally blow you away.

A rare east-end appearance for us, so all you East Yorkers and Scarberians get your dancing shoes on for this one! Get out of the house – you’re used to winter now …

Elana is kicking it off with some of her excellent rock, and we’ll be trading sets with Bri-Anne Swan after that. Come early and have a pint while we’re watching Elana.

A big round of thanks to the many people who filled up Grafitti’s last night. What a great time we had. Still full when we closed up at 10. We played shorter sets so we had more time to chat with friends and patrons. We gave away two Deerslayer mugs, two Hicks & Dawe holiday mugs, and two vintage vinyl – a rare Willie Nelson and The Secret Policemen’s (Other) Ball. Thanks to Marti Aykroyd for helping with the decorations and raffle tickets. We’ll be doing this again for sure. Maybe next time someone will by the band a round without being prompted – it’s thirsty work under the lights …
