Bix Beiderbecke plays the Wedding March

by Bob Spoo

On Thursday, May 3, 1923, an article appeared in the Davenport Democrat and Leader, Page 4: "Gertrude Seiffert Beiderbecke Becomes Bride of Wm. D. Washburn of Evanston." The wedding took place at the home of the bride's grandparents on 6th Street in Davenport. The article states: "Bix Beiderbecke, the cousin of the bride, was at the piano and played the wedding march as the bride entered on the arm of her father, Charles T. Beiderbecke, who gave her away."
