The Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival, continues Sunday with a number of free performances.

Lou Gramm, the former lead vocalist for Foreigner, performed Saturday on the East Ave. and Chestnut St. stage, presented by Wegmans. While the band performed, a world-renowned performance artist painted five canvasses live on stage, to create a 5 x 25 ft. painting which blended rock and roll, and veggies. It's called "Veggies Rock."

"I've been looking forward to the jazz fest forever. I love it every year. It's the best thing going. You see all these people, everybody's having a great time. We got up close and personal so we can see from a bird's eye view," said Calvin Screen of Rochester.

Another one of Saturday's big headliners was Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers at the Kodak Hall and Eastman Theatre. The festival continues through June 28.
