    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival returns Sept. 30 not only with plenty to tempt the palate but also with a heaping side order of music for the ears. Pop songstress Taylor Dayne opens 2011?s 18-act Eat to the Beat concert series with performances on the first three evenings of the 45-day festival.

    The musical menu that follows Dayne in October and November has about as much variety as the festival marketplaces, including classic rock, prog rock, soul, R&B, jazz and funk hit-makers. The lineup includes three Eat to the Beat newcomers: Gin Blossoms, The Pointer Sisters and The Orchestra starring former members of ELO.

    Here’s the lineup (entertainment is subject to change without written notice):

    • Sept. 30-Oct. 2: Taylor Dayne
    • Oct. 3-5: .38 Special
    • Oct. 6-7: Jon Secada
    • Oct. 8-9: Roger Hodgson (formerly of Supertramp)
