Welcome to the home of the Bix Beiderbecke Jazz Society! Based in Davenport, IA, Bix Beiderbecke Jazz Society exists to perpetuate the music and memory of Leon ‘Bix’ Beiderbecke and music of the TradJazz Era. One of our major events to promote TradJazz is our annual Bix Jazz Festival where we invite bands to showcase music inspired by Bix and TradJazz alongside the Bix Youth Jazz Band and put on a weekend of music for attendees to remember Bix's legacy and show that Bix Lives through us.

Keeping the Music - and Memory - of a Jazz Legend Alive

Bix Jazz Festival


Each year it’s our chance to pay for operating expenses. Your donation can be used to sponsor the Bix Youth Jazz Band and Director, provide music scholarships, promote traditional Jazz era music, and Bix history. We greatly appreciate anything you care to give, via PayPal or credit card or call us if you don’t want to put out your card number over the internet. The Bix Jazz Society greatly appreciates your support during this time. Because of you, Bix Lives!
