First night of the Jazz Festival

Updated: Friday, June 20 2014, 06:36 PM EDT

Rochester, N.Y. – The 13th edition of the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival kicked off Friday.

Bands from all over the world are in Rochester for the festival. 1,500 artists will perform over the next nine days.

The international show not only gives artists an opportunity to share their gifts but local high school students get the chance to play on a state unlike any other.

The Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival attracted nearly 200,000 people last year and organizers hope to break that number this year.

There are over 70 free shows this year, including Big Band VooDoo Daddy tonight at 9 p.m. on the East Avenue and Chestnut Street Stage.
