Rock out at Epcot with Richard Marx, Vanessa Carlton, Boyz II Men, Better Than Ezra and more




If you're looking for an excuse to hit he Magic Kingdom this fall, may we suggest the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival?

The food is a draw, sure. But where else can you visit a faithful recreation of medievael Norway AND rock out to Right Here Waiting? (Besides in our dreams, of course.)

That's right: Richard Marx is one of the headliners to this year's Eat to the Beat Concert Series, which brings in national artists to perform while you chow down on world-class cuisine.

Other headliners include Vanessa Carlton (above), Boys II Men, En Vogue, Better Than Ezra, Sister Hazel, Kool & the Gang, Jon Secada, Taylor Dayne, John Waite, Taylor Hicks, Billy Ocean and Los Lobos.

The bands have to work for their money -- there are three shows per day, at 5:15, 6:30 and 7:45 p.m. at the World Showcase at Epcot America Gardens Theatre.

The first shows are this weekend with Big Bad Voodoo Daddy on Sept. 25-27. After the jump, get a complete schedule of performers.
