(MOBILE, Ala.) - Crowds continue to pour into downtown Mobile for BayFest.
Festival organizers are expecting thousands of people to come into town for the largest music festival in the state.
BayFest means a little something for everyone, every year.
There’s a little bit of Grayson Capps down home country to the steely sounds of Toronto's own My Darkest Days.
"BayFest is one of the biggest festivals in this entire area. We've done Rock on the Range and a bunch of different festivals like that but it's a different vibe here. It's the hospitality, the people, the fans it's just a different environment," says Sal Costa, lead guitarist for My Darkest Days.
Keyboardist Reid Henry says though the band likes to smell their audience at cramped clubs; they prefer the open air concerts, especially on an autumn evening in Mobile.
"When you're playing outside it’s always a lot more of a rush because typically there's a lot more people, and anytime you can get in front of the many people and do what you do it's definitely an enlightening experience," says Henry.
For a band on the road, experiencing the town before the show may be hard to do.
"First you get some Jaeger, and that's about it," says Brendan McMillan.
"I woke up, I had a bit of catering, watched Matt Go for a ride on his scooter," says drummer Doug Oliver.
"We do some vocal warm-ups then we listen to our favorite bands that get us pumped up like ACDC,” says lead vocalist Matt Walst.
The Canadian rockers agree the Port City experience is in the fans themselves.
"The people are super nice, they're willing to help you and just look at this place. Look at all the women, look at all the people. It's going to be amazing,” says Costa.
