Below is a lineup of the Food and Wine Festival's Eat to the Beat Lineup series. If you are going to be in the World during late September-mid November, the performance dates of each can be found over at WDW Magic. I will save commentary for future posts, or perhaps Kip or Dutch will chime in with their thoughts. Honestly, there are a lot of amusing choices to digest here, and could make for an interesting show topic. For what its worth, there is quite a bit of former star power here. To help, I have put what I believe is one song that makes the group most famous (read: you would pissed if this was not part of their concert each night) and the year it was released. If I missed the mark on the song I picked, give me a shout at email@example.com.
