Local musician Karen Mansfield, who played an event at Asbury Lanes on a bill with Nicole Atkins and Wesley Stace (formerly known as John WesleyHarding) promoting her self-titled release, said the mood the night before the show was electric.
“All the performances were amazing,” said Mansfield, who recently lost her aunt to Parkinson’s. “I believe in what Bob Benjamin, Tony Pallagrosi, and all the LOD board members are doing as well as what the artists and the folks who come to the shows are all doing about it. Every bit of effort will bring a positive result. I believe that.”
