TALLAHASSEE, FLA. - The community enjoyed live blues and jazz music at the Tallahassee Museum this weekend.

The 28th annual festival brings in local artists and bands, while showcasing their musical styles.

The event also benefits the museum, which will in turn help educate the community on their exhibitions.

"We do so much for the community and a lot of the programs that we do are free of charge. So programs like this help subsides our activites. I mean we give away $60,000 to $70,000 worth of free tickets every year," said Russell Daws, the President/CEO of the Tallahassee Museum.

Daws says because of the wonderful turn out, they will host the festival again next year.

No word on a date yet, but Daws says he hopes in April.
