Long Branch:The unofficial count of visitors at Pier Village - at Festival Plaza - was 702 at the last evening Summer Music by the sea. While the actual count was tough to do, so many coming, going and moving about to the music. It was a great night with the Brian Kirk and the Jirks.
People were still on the beach and in the outside dining restaurants and soaking up the soothing breeze as well as the sounds.
Kirk was very timely, with songs from the 6-s and 90s , some newer. All were fun to hear and dance was a big event.
Brian's songs included such classics as "Brandi", such a fine girl.... And "Killing Me Softly" sounded so smooth, with loving looks shared by coddlers feeling the moment of today and ago times.
The fireworks followed as kids eyes opened wide and some covered their ears. Excitement prevailed and coos and ahhs were the goodnight to a great summer in Long Branch.
