    Hope you're ready for four days of the best Jazz music around, because today marks the start of the 43rd Annual Bix Beiderbecke Memorial Jazz Festival! Spend the weekend soaking in tunes from the Jim Cullum Jazz Band, The Fat Babies, and more at the RiverCenter, Adler Theatre, and LeClaire Park. Make sure you stop by the Main Branch of the Davenport Public Library Saturday between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. for dancin' in the street and live jazz during their Bix Porch Party.

The Mercury Brothers Band takes the stage tomorrow in the RME Courtyard for Friday Live at 5. Come on out for some outdoor music, a cash bar, and a chance to unwind after a busy week!
