DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) -

Before the 7 mile run and block parties, there was a Davenport coronet player named Bix Beiderbecke who is still considered among the greatest jazz musicians in the world. This memorial Jazz Fest in his name lives on as Steve Trainor, President of the Bix Society, shares what this year has in store!

Beginning August 5-7, the jazz festival will be held at the Rhythm City Casino’s Event Center in north Davenport.
