Thursday, May 6, 2021 at 7:00pm
Rain date: Friday, May 7 at 7:00pm

Mike Davis has become a staple of the Bickford Theatre every March with his Bix Beiderbecke’s Birthday Bash concert. Although we are a couple of months late, it is never too late to delve into the rich musical legacy of this jazz giant that achieved so much with such a short life. 

Explore a moment in American music when tradition collided with change, when daring creativity set a new standard for popular music. In a time of constant change not unlike our own, America in the 1920s witnessed a parade of new inventions and modernizations, and artists like Bix Beiderbecke heralded a new creative streak in music for a mass audience that would remain a permanent presence long after he was gone.
