  This site is dedicated to the preservation and dissemination of  information about Bix Beiderbecke, the musical genius from Davenport, Iowa. 
  Annotated lists of books, articles, video tapes, audio tapes, recordings, and related items are provided. 
  There are five satellite sites: two for images, one for WBIX, the virtual radio station devoted to Bix, one for Jim Grover's Bix Radio Program, and one for the Bix discography.
  In addition, there is a forum where topics related to Bix are discussed.
  Links to these sites are provided on the left-hand side column.
  I hope that this site will become the most comprehensive primary reference work of available resources about Bix. I will need the help of my fellow Bixophiles to add to and correct the information that I provide.

    The highlights of the year for Bixophiles are the Bix Beiderbecke Memorial Jazz Festival which takes place during August 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.

"Through his music, Bix is alive."
