Singer Sheri Nadelman had just begun her performance at Live Music on the Plaza at Waterside Place on Aug. 5 when a helicopter flew low overhead.
"That's not for me," she said, then laughed along with the crowd.
Whether she was singing for those strolling through Waterside Place or interacting with the crowd that had gathered in front of the plaza, Nadelman seemed to be enjoying every moment.
"I love playing here," Nadelman said of the free entertainment at Waterside Place. "There is no pressure for the artists and no pressure for the guest. It is a relaxed atmosphere."
Although the crowd at Waterside Place can fluctuate in size from week to week, or from minute to minute on the evening of a Friday or Saturday show, Nadelman is confident the crowds will continue to grow.
"This is not Music on Main now," she said of the monthly free concert series at Main Street at Lakewood Ranch. "But it will be."
