The Acoustic Warriors was a band formed by San Francisco rhythm guitarist Dan Hicks in the early 1990s, to replace his reunited 1968-1973 offbeat psychedelic Bay Area group Dan Hicks & the Hot Licks (which never used electric instruments, and rarely drums).

The Hot Licks group had reunited with Dan Hicks in 1990, and again for a 1992 broadcast of an episode of the PBS music television program Austin City Limits. The reunion program also featured Dan Hicks' new group, The Acoustic Warriors, a combination of folk, swing, jazz, and country styles. The Acoustic Warriors band consisted of Dan Hicks, Brian Godchaux on violin and mandolin, Paul Mehling on guitar and Richard Saunders on bass.[1]

Hicks has since returned to usage of the Hot Licks name.
