LAKEWOOD – Super storm Sandy destroyed much of the shore and the possessions of the people who live there, but through the spirit of “locals helping locals,” there is an opportunity to help those in dire need.
Join a group of local Hometown Heroes for a night of live music at a Restore the Shore Concert Series – Coming Together, Saturday, Jan. 26, from 7 to 11:30 p.m. at the Strand Theatre, 400 Clifton Avenue, Lakewood. The proceeds will benefit families from Seaside and Toms River who lost everything to Sandy’s wrath.
Performing live on stage will be the Shorty Long Band; international recording artist Chris Leone; the Eddie Testa Band; Gary “The Bangs” Roupenian; Vin-Taze; the Nick Clemons Band; Edison’s Children; and Surrender Darcy.
