The Charlatans

The Charlatans were an influential folk rock and psychedelic rock band that played a role in the development of the San Francisco music scene during the 1960 s and are often cited by critics as being the first group to play in the style that became known as the San Francisco Sound.Exhibiting more pronounced jug band, country and blues influences than many bands from the same scene, the Charlatans’ rebellious attitude and distinctive late 19th-century fashions exerted a strong influence on the Summer of Love in San Francisco. Their recorded output was small, with their first album, The Charlatans, not being released until 1969, some years after the band’s heyday. The Charlatans’ drummer and, later, rhythm guitarist, Dan Hicks, went on to form the successful country rock band Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks.  /Gjithqka Nga Pak
