Exciting New Artists to Perform at the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival

We have some exciting news this week regarding the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival’s line up of entertainment for the “Eat to the Beat” concert series. New to the festival this year is percussionist extraordinaire and vocalist Sheila E and 80s Canadian rockers Glass Tiger. Jim Belushi will be bringing his rhythm-and-blues band The Sacred Hearts and fans of the Lachey brothers will rejoice when they hear that 98 degrees will be appearing as well!
