More than ten years ago, each member of The Bix Mix Boys had met over various jams and festivals in different bands throughout Alberta. Opportunity struck when a number of those bands dissolved, and late night jams lead to the formation of a new band. Wanting to respect the roots of bluegrass, they chose the name The Bix Mix Boys after one of the biscuit products from the Martha White flour company - Martha White is known for sponsoring bluegrass acts such as Flatt and Scruggs, Hot Rize and Rhonda Vincent (just to name a few).
They have always focused on producing the highest quality of music possible, both vocally and instrumentally. While keeping the tradition of bluegrass alive, they want to bring their unique, Canadian interpretation to the genre. At the same time, they've always wanted put on an entertaining show - with a humourous twist in between numbers. They've entrenched themselves into the Edmonton and Calgary bluegrass scene and consider themselves ambassadors of bluegrass music to Alberta and Canada.
