BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Cocoa Beach’s oceanfront Shepard Park will be the venue for the Space Coast’s hottest event next year when Space Coast Daily presents the three-day 2017 Cocoa Beach Seafood & Music Festival.

There will also be an International Beer and Wine Garden featuring a wide variety of beers and wines, with cocktails also available.
The Original Wailers certainly own reggae chops, for band co-founder and Grammy nominated Al Anderson was guitarist for Bob Marley & the Wailers, the group that defined reggae.
McLean is forever associated with his classic hits “American Pie,” “Starry Starry Night,” “Castles in the Air,” “And I Love You So” and “Crying.”
Since first hitting the charts in 1971, McLean has amassed over 40 gold and platinum records world-wide and, in 2004, was inducted into the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame.
His songs have been recorded by artists from every musical genre, most notably Madonna’s No. 1 recording of “American Pie” in 2000 and George Michael’s version of “The Grave” in 2003, sung in protest at the Iraq War.
Stay tuned for announcements about additional artists, which will come soon.
