A group of performers new to the market this year, Bill and the Kids, drew quite a large crowd with their jazz music. Drishti Balaiah, 9, sings while her brother Shreyas, 11, plays keyboard. The group was started by bass player Bill Kent, 68, last October and saxophonist Earl Hagen, 83, jumped on board. (Alisa Howlett/News staff)
