The world is incontestably a richer place because of WILLIE DIXON’S musical contributions alone. Believing that his work was not yet finished, Dixon devoted much of his time in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s to the organization he founded, BLUES HEAVEN FOUNDATION. His vision was to allow the echoes of great American Blues to continue to develop, to encourage a new generation of blues greats and to provide for the on-going welfare of senior Blues musicians.

Willie Dixon's Blues Heaven Foundation would like to thank The Rolling Stones and BMG for their generous donation and their continued support of the Blues!

​This charitable gift will assist Willie Dixon's Blues Heaven Foundation with their continued endeavors promoting Blues music, as well as the ongoing preservation of the historic Chess Records building, where much of this music was recorded.  

On behalf of Willie Dixon's Blues Heaven Foundation, we thank you so very much!

Today we celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the historic Chess Records!

Although the label, founded by brothers Leonard and Phil Chess in 1950, has since been dissolved, the voices and music of so many legendary artists it brought to us is still heard and loved throughout the world, and even beyond the stars, today.


Happy 7oth Anniversary Chess Records!

We will be throwing you a party soon and it's going to be a Wand Dang Doodle!
