Freddie Dixon is the embodiment of the Chicago Blues. The 2nd son of the world-famous 7th Son, Willie Dixon, Freddie has been surrounded by the Blues since the day he was born. His father is a blues legend as a song writer, producer, and musician. Willie was at the helm at Chess Records for many of the sides cut in the 1950’s, 1960’s and into the 1970’s.
Freddie began his blues career learning his chops playing with a number of musicians in south side blues clubs. He was soon hired to play in his father’s band, The Chicago Blues All-Stars and traveled around the world spreading the gospel of the blues.
The torch was handed to Freddie in the early 1990’s when his father passed away. Since then, Freddie has continued as a blues ambassador playing to crowds from Europe to Australia as well as locally in Chicago. In 2020 Freddie, along with Chicago Blues legends John Watkins and Maurice John Vaughan produced a 2 disc CD called “3x3,” which is available at most on line retailers.
The current line up of the Freddie Dixon Blues Band consists of Freddie on bass and vocals, Tom Stober and Robert Lassandrello on guitar, along with classically trained violinist Judy Lei. Also making regular guest appearances is Chicago Blues Legend, and Chicago Blues Hall of Famer, Doktu Rhute Muuzic, aka the Root Doctor.
Freddie is a member of the Chicago Blues Hall of Fame and currently resides in Chicago with his wife Linda.
