So rather than reprinting it here, I'll just link to the posts I drew upon.
* The Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks show at The Santa Fe Brewing Co.
* Hootenanny 2009 in Irvine, Calif.
and just a dab from ...
* Rev. Beat Man & His Blues Trash Trio at Corazon. (Rob DeWalt wrote a full review for Pasatiempo, but, sadly, I don't think it's online.)
