If you are a scout for America’s Got Talent, a record label, or owner of an establishment looking for live entertainment from R&B Jazz to Easy Listening, or just shopping for a praise or Indo-Caribbean dance group you want to be at the Pat Larkin Community Stage at the south end of the one mile long beach at the Pompano Beach Seafood Festival. The audience is expected to be anywhere from 20,000 to 60,000 in attendance.
Of course, there is a great lineup on the Main Stage you can view on the entertainment page followed by the lineup for the second stage. This story is for those very talented and terrific local acts who will be performing on the Pat Larkin Community Stage. This story is to give those acts, several of whom are Reverbnation artists equal time in the promotion for the festival; provide links to their fan pages and correct typos, if any. Ahem, there were a few typos and nothing is more important to a performer besides audience appreciation, than the spelling of their stage name.
All acts could not be found online, so not all will have links, but for those that were found, we’re giving them their 15 minutes. The rest is up to you.
