Bix Porch Party kicks off Bix Jazz Festival

Bix Porch Fest

People danced in the street yesterday morning in downtown Davenport.

That was the site of the Davenport Public Library’s Bix Porch Party.

Jazz lover Tom Duncan says the annual party is an inspiration.

“Well, hopefully they will pick up an instrument and start playing, there is a Bix Youth Band that will be playing this weekend and anybody that has the opportunity ought to go listen to them,” Duncan said.

And if you love jazz, this event is just the beginning of the Bix Jazz Festival, which runs through this weekend.
