Main Street's JazzFest kicked off on the Square in Murfreesboro, Tenn. on  May 2 and ran through May 3. The weekend was packed with the sounds of all types of jazz and other music genres from area high schools, middle schools and regional talent. 

Many high school bands participated on Friday evening as temperatures were on the cool side, but that didn't take away from any spirits of the attendees as crowds lingered until after 11 p.m. 

On Saturday, the crowd accumulated throughout the day with a packed house by nightfall for the performance of Music City Swing. Along with the diverse group led by Karl Wingruber, other names included 129th Army Jazz Band, Joe Johnson, Joe Davidian, Dara Tucker, Kevin Whalum, MTSU Faculty Combo, MTSU Jazz Ensemble I, Murfreesboro Youth Jazz Orchestra and many more. 

After his performance on Saturday, Kevin Whalum also conducted a clinic at Center for the Arts where he opened a question and answer forum to an attentive group of people, while speaking on his influences and early musical days. 

WSMV's Tom Randles, also a noted musician, was also on hand and participated as a guest emcee on the main stage. 

All in all, the weekend wrapped up nicely for the annual downtown festival.
