This site is dedicated to the
dissemination of information about Bix
the musical genius from Davenport, Iowa.
The highlights of the year for Bixophiles are the Bix Beiderbecke Memorial Jazz Festival which takes place during July in Davenport, Iowa, and the Tribute to Bix Beiderbecke which takes place in Racine, Wisconsin on the weekend nearest March 10 (Bix's birthday). Jazz bands, visitors and Bixophiles from all over the world gather to celebrate Bix's musical genius. Perhaps, to a true Bix admirer, the most significant and poignant event of the Festival is the Saturday morning visit to Bix's grave site in Oakdale Cemetery. Musicians and fans gather to honor Bix's memory and play the music he made famous.
