The Old Rock House on Friday announced two shows scheduled for July that may be of potential interest to local jazz listeners:
* Bassist Victor Wooten (pictured), who was just here last month to play the Sheldon with Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, will perform at 8:00 p.m. Thursday, July 5 at ORH. Wooten's most recent CD as a leader, Palmystery, came out back in 2008. He last played St. Louis with his own group in 2009 at The Pageant.
* The following week, singer/guitarist Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks, known for blending swing, folk, Gypsy music, blues and rock with wry humor, will play at 8:00 p.m. Wednesday, July 11. Hicks' most recent recordings are 2009's Tangled Tales and 2010's Crazy for Christmas.
Tickets for Wooten are priced at $25 in advance, $30 day of show, while tix for Hicks are $25. Tickets for both shows will go on sale at 5:00 p.m. next Friday, April 27.
