You Made It - THANK you for attending - or watching the 50th Bix Jazz Fest by streaming. Your enthusiasm showed the Board of Directors that Bix STILL Lives. We are busy preparing for the 2022 Festival. This year, please considering paying-for-a-friend to attend with you - and help us make new fans!

Traditional Jazz Bands!

If you are a traditional jazz band (only; no single, duet artists, or trios) and want to apply to be part of the next Bix Jazz Festival (8/4-6/22) please send any rehearsal or live presentation LINKS to office@bixsociety.org.

Please include your fee, how many players you have, if you're willing to double-up in the motel rooms, and from which city you'll be driving. Most bands are chosen and notified by December of each year. Thank you!

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!
