Welcome To The Bix Beiderbecke Memorial Society

2018 Bix Festival - Aug. 2 - 4

We’re planning on the next festival to again be at the Rhythm City Casino Resort in north Davenport.  We received many compliments on the acoustical “Event Center” for our concerts. It also has 3 restaurants, free parking (including valet), and will again be our host hotel and a major sponsor.  It is also very close to many shopping & other dining options.

Ticket information is on the FESTIVAL page.

Winner will receive TWO (2!) weekend passes to the 2018 Bix Beiderbecke Memorial Jazz Festival good for admission to Friday and Saturday concerts at the Rhythm City Casino. Official Rules here...

Putting on an annual festival the size of this musical tribute to Bix is tremendously expensive and ticket fees alone cannot begin to sustain it. Continued success is dependent upon grants, sponsors, and donations large and small from Bix fans and supporters. B.B.M.S. is a non-profit organization and donations are tax-deductible. Call the B.B.M.S, office, (563) 324-7170, for the various donor levels or check our website on the Sponsorship Opportunities page.

Promote the Bix Fest?

Will you be traveling to any other jazz festivals this winter & spring?  Could you help us PROMOTE THE BIX by taking some fliers with you?  Respond by emailing the Bix office and, when the time comes, we'll send you some fliers.  Thank you!


The Bix Society is always looking for volunteers to help stage the festival, the Birthday Bash, and other events.  If you’re interested, please email your name & contact information to info@bixsociety.org any time of the year.

If you have a specific talent or inclination to help in a certain area (like "sales experience" for our Souvenir tables), please note that, as well.
