EPCOT knows their concert series demographic. I’m positive that most of these bands will drive their rented motor scooter onto stage


For Jo Dee Messina you have “Stand by Me” listed. I think you meant “Stand Beside Me”

But she had much bigger hits. “Heads Carolina, Tails California”, “bye bye”, and “I’m Alright” for example.
