Bix Youth Band

The Bix Youth Band will hold auditions on Sunday, Nov. 27th at the Bettendorf Community Center from 1 - 5 pm, 2204 Grant St. (Crimson Room)  Being a former member does not ensure a spot for 2017. The band needs the following:  5 Saxophones (2 Alto, 2 Tenor, 1 Bari); 4-5 Trumpets; 4-5 Trombones; 3-7 Rhythm (1-2 Pianists, 1-2 Bassists, 1-2 Drummers).  Auditions will be heard in order of arrival; please arrive before 4:15, but arriving that late won’t guarantee there will be time to hear your audition.  Keyboard, drums, and all necessary recordings will be provided.  Please bring your own copies of the music.

The Bix Youth Band is sponsored by the Bix Memorial Society of Davenport, IA. An auditioned group, the band seeks to spread the music of Bix Beiderbecke and other early 20th century artists and further jazz education in the Quad Cities. The Youth Band is made up of middle and high school students from throughout the Quad Cities who express an interest in early jazz and complete a successful audition. Come see us this summer!
