Another night of blues at LeClaire Park in Davenport.

The Mississippi Valley Blues Society kicked off its 32nd Annual Blues Fest.  

The all-volunteer, award winning festival hosts ten local artists. 

The two-day festival kicks each day off with blues performances as soon as the gates open.

Organizers say so far this year it has been a success.

“We have six bands on the band shell, we have bands playing in the local scenes stage, so there’s continuous live music all weekend,” said Blues Fest Volunteer Coordinator Kristy Bennett.

The money raised helps fund next year’s Blues Fest.
