Crowd jams at blues fest in the park

Posted: Updated:
ST. PETERSBURG, FL (WFLA) -

The weather was warm, but the blues was cool at Vinoy Park Sunday.

Some of the biggest names in blues music had the crowd on its feet and jammin' at the 20th annual Tampa Bay Blues Festival.

People were dancing. Others sat back and relaxed. But they all enjoyed the music and tropical settting in downtown St. Petersburg.

Fans have danced, swayed and entertained by the sounds of well-known entertainments and bands, including Chicago, guitarist Buddy Guy, Blind Boys of Alabama and crooner Michael McDonald.

Irma Thomas is the festival's final act. She performs at 8:30 p.m.

Tickets are $40.
