18th annual jazz service features Bix Beiderbecke classics during serivce

ROCK ISLAND, Illinois -- A local church mixed things up during church Sunday August 4th, playing Bix Beirderbecke classics during service.

This was the 18th annual jazz service at the Church of Peace in Rock Island, Illinois.

Members of the church make up this band. During church, they played traditional hymns and during bible verses, along with music from Davenport native Bix Beiderbecke.

"We've always liked the music of traditional jazz and of Bix so we thought why not bring it to church," said Jessica Wayternick, the band's conductor. "Everyone else likes it too."

Wayternick also says connecting to Bix Beirderbeck is an advantage for the Quad City band.
