Story & Photographs by Diane Fleischman

Hot of their heels of their Grammy appearance on Sunday, DNCE performed at the Sands Event Center to an excited crowd.  For some, it was to catch a glimpse of lead singer, Joe Jonas, formerly of The Jonas Brothers, while others came to enjoy their infectious funky dance music. 

While DNCE formed in 2015, they all share a common bond with Jonas, as JinJoo (guitarist), and Jack Lawless (drummer), are former musicians of The Jonas Brothers, and co-founder,  Cole Whittle (keyboards, guitar), formerly of glam band, Semi Precious Weapons, maintain a long friendship. 

DNCE is a band to watch, and many fans sang and bopped along to their favorites, “Toothbrush” and hit single, “Cake by the Ocean” as the band covered the stage with their high energy performance, and complimented by a techno lighting system. 

The music celebrated the talent and success of this group, while the audience enjoyed an amazing concert.  As this leg of the tour closed with their Bethlehem performance,  they’re off to Japan next month, then one remaining show in the States until the tour wraps in early April.
