Long Branch:The Zydeco-a-Go-Go visiting band made the music scene on Tuesday at the bandshell off Broadway, on a warm, but humid evening that made the band feel right with its Lousiana style of rock. The band is based in Pennsylvania but has adopted the lively cadence and drum beat and guitar strumming in a southwest tone, a bit on the country side. The crowd loved it, a casual audience that sat back and tapped toes on the lawn or sidewalk.
It was a night where several beach chair people brought lawn blankets and others even had their knitting gear. For the knitters the sweaters and baby wear work it was a nice background, music and friends.
The songs were new for many, with the exception of the Cajun Waltz, which comes from the "The Big Easy" movie from the past.
Vocalist Pete had his own brand of music, with songs telling humorous tales such as "Uncle Bob" with lyrics telling of Pete's Uncle Bob's escapades of fun events.
It was different music but a happy beat that drew lots of smiles, and applause.
