Maiden Dixie Mania

Local musician Jesse Becker tours the Midwest with popular band.

Osseo resident Jesse Becker has always loved music, but when he went to the University of South Dakota on a full ride basketball scholarship, he never thought he would end up in a band. Becker joined Maiden Dixie as lead vocalist and guitarist five years ago. “We are considered country music, but we have a very diverse eclectic background,” he says. Their music contains elements of pop, rock and Americana. “We are kind of a melting pot of different things,” Becker says.

The band has played events such as WE Fest and Winstock and opened for singers including Miranda Lambert. They have three albums and produced a music video for the song “New Again,” which honors American veterans.

See Maiden Dixie live at the Maple Grove Town Green Summer
Concert Series: Wednesday, August 23.
