ROCKINGHAM — Beach music is where it’s at. Just ask Erin Brumwright and Colt Jenkins.

Erin, 4, of Rockingham, and Colt, 2, of Ellerbe, couldn’t stop themselves from dancing to Jim Quick and Coastline Thursday night at Plaza Jam, a free monthly summer concert series coordinated by the city of Rockingham. Good thing for both youngsters is that neither wanted to stop — and neither did.

“Oh yeah, they love it,” said nanna Georgia Cagle. “They’ll dance all night.”

Colt was there with his parents, Ashley and Justin Jenkins. Erin was there with her mother, Jennifer.

Between 200 and 300 people — young and old, black, white and everything else —attended Thursday’s performance by Quick, a North Carolina native. Thursday’s two-hour set was the second of six performances scheduled for each first Thursday of the month. The next concert is scheduled for July 3, again at Cole Plaza sandwiched between City Hall and Leath Memorial Library.
