VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — A local band decided to perform a mini-concert for frustrated drivers and passengers after traffic came to a standstill on Interstate 264 while police worked to clear the scene of an accident, Saturday night.

Many viewers asked 10 On Your Side about a big backup on I-264. Dispatchers told a two-vehicle crash shut down the westbound lanes of the highway at Rosemont Road around 8:30 p.m. Then, WAVY viewers began posting updates about how time stuck on the interstate was spent — it was a traffic jam-session.

The Hot Gumbo Brass Band from Norfolk played while stuck on I-264 for about 40 minutes.

According to viewers, even an ice cream truck joined the fun.
