The band performs Dixieland standard music and instrumental adaptations of popular French chansons. The idea of organizing a jazz festival in the old capital has been reflected upon for nearly 24 years. In the autumn of 2007 musicians from the Royal Dixie Band Veliko Tarnovo decided to join forces and organize the "Dixie - Jazz Fest" Veliko Tarnovo. Its first edition was in June, 2008 at the open space of the Cafe Royal in the old city.                                                         

     "Dixie - Jazz Fest "as organizers hope that the conduct of "Dixie - Jazz Fest" Veliko Tarnovo contributes to the cultural life in the town. Veliko Tarnovo is an increasingly attractive touristy spot for both Bulgarian and foreign visitors. Gradually the popularity of the town is growing and it was potential of becoming one of the most visited places in Eastern Europe.
