Day 2 of Mississippi Valley Blues Fest

Posted: Updated:


The 29th annual Mississippi Valley Blues Festival is heating up tonight with multiple acts hitting the stage.

Flooding caused the location to change to Second Street but that's not stopping the show.
Last night, organizers say between 3 to 5-thousand people attended and it's important to keep the tradition going.

"Well it's just the best music," said Steve Brundies, President of the Mississippi Blues Society. "It's a combination of gospel, jazz, of rock and roll. It's like preserving Model T's. Without them you wouldn't have the cars you have today without the original stuff."

It's not too late to enjoy the festival as it continues tomorrow.
