Rochester, N.Y. (13WHAM) - Music moved through the rain drops as people armed with rain gear danced the night away.
"The music is fantastic," said Kathy Perry who was at the festival with her husband, Tom.
They try make it to the jazz festival every year.
Jazz festival first timers, mother and daughter Nikki and Millicent McFarland of Louisiana, came down to the festival after they heard about it while in town for a conference.
"It's very nice, despite the weather the music kind of uplifts you quite a bit," said Nikki McFarland.
Even performers were embracing the wet weather. Shemekia Copeland opened on the Chestnut Street stage Friday night.
"A little rain shouldn't stop you from coming out to see free live music because you never know it might change your life," said Copeland.
Saturday is the last day of this year's jazz festival.
The free music includes Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue.
That show starts at 9 pm on the East Ave. and Alexander Street Stage.
