Dixon House Band

Dixon House Band

The Dixon House Band was a prog-rock/pop group based in Seattle, Washington in the late 1970s. It issued one album on New York City-based Infinity Records in 1979 entitled Fighting Alone and had a minor chart hit with the song "Sooner Or Later".

The band got its name from the founder and keyboard player/lead vocalist, Dixon House. The band's sound was a cross between the vocal sound and melodic hooks of Styx combined with some of the musical prowess and lyricism of Kansas, but with heavier guitars using a thinly compressed sound. It also had a female guitarist like Seattle counterpart Heart. Like many rock groups of its day at the dawn of the 1980s, it suffered from poor promotion and record company support.

Members of the band were:[1]

  • Dixon House on keyboards and vocals,
  • Chrissy Shefts on guitars,
  • Chuck Gardner on guitars,
  • Fred Zeufeldt on drums and
  • James Kenfield on bass guitar.



The Dixon House Band released one album. Most of the words and music were written by Edward Dixon House. Dixon House was a well known popular band leader and singer in Victoria who moved to Vancouver in 1974 to pursue a recording career originally with Mushroom Records and producer Mike Flicker, who also was the producer for Heart before the band abandoned Vancouver for Seattle. In Seattle, Dixon House Band was supported and promoted by Heart's producer for the production of the album Fighting Alone.
