|Travis "Moonchild" Haddix
Travis Haddix, born November 26, in Walnut, Mississippi, located thirty miles south of Memphis, Tennessee, began playing the piano at the age of seven. The turning point in his musical learning experience came when he was eight, when legendary B.B. King came to Memphis and began playing daily at the studios of WDIA.
Years later, the Haddix family moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin where Travis, now a budding star, continued to refine his craft by singing and playing throughout the north. The original 'Moonchild', he earned the nickname from his beaming presence on stage and his always broad smile.
Haddix has received rave reviews in Living Blues Magazine and Audience Magazine. His style evokes the rounds of the great Stax-Volt days, when the likes of Sam & Dave ruled the urban blues roost.
One of the last releases of Travis Haddix are 'Dance to the Blues', 'Signs of the Time' and 'Knee Deep in the Blues', which was recorded and released early 1998 with the HARLEM RAMBLERS in Switzerland (Elite Special 73413).
Travis' positive attitude is summarized by the remarks he uses to close each performance... 'I am the best that I can be, and since no one else can be me, there's none better!
