Dixie Company is a traditional jazz band from Poznań, Poland. Since its formation in 1993 the band has given hundreds of shows and taken part in a number of prestigious events and festivals in Poland and other European countries. The band performed during jazz festivals and gave concerts in jazz clubs in France, Czech Republic, Germany, Switzerland, Slovakia, Sweden and Hungary. In Germany they shared stage with Danish jazz band Papa Bue’s Viking Jazz Band and Dutch jazz ensemble Dutch Swing College Band. Mr Acker Bilk with his Paramount Jazz Band was an honorary guest and a star during Dixie Company’s 15th anniversary. For the last couple of years Dixie Company has successfully organized Old Jazz Festival in Poznan. Such stars as Kenny Ball and his Jazzmen accepted the band’s invitation to take part in the festival. Dixie’s performances are fast moving shows leaving the audience totally exhilarated. The strong front line and the solid rhythm section combine to create enjoyable and swinging trad jazz. Energy and enthusiasm are guaranteed by the singing and virtuoso performance of the banjo player.
