LONG BRANCH: Thursday By the Sea was a dancers' delight as Lisa Sherman & the Disco Connection band brought the rhythm and the melodies to Festival Plaza at Pier Village, part of the city's summer musical festival.
A powerful voice and beautiful tone makes Sherman a crowd pleaser that stirs those inner excitements that bring listeners off their chairs or lawn blankets onto the street spots at stage side to express their moves with hips, arms and torso amid a huge crowd in the plaza of entertainment.
It was non-stop excitement enjoyed by youngsters and oldsters alike, moms, dads, kids and all ages in between.
"Best show all summer," a "regular" Thursday visitor said.
She grabbed her partner off a chair and into a swinging frenzy as close by visitors cleared a place for their impromptu dance floor.
