(Hollywood, Florida) Hollywood Beach will host the 8th Annual Clambake on the Broadwalk, the popular music & seafood festival that features good eats and fresh beats at the water’s edge.

The Hollywood Beach Broadwalk will host a bounty of fresh seafood, live music and free family entertainment on October 16-18, 2009 at the 8th Annual Hollywood Beach Clambake, where that tasty New England tradition returns with a tropical twist. The eagerly awaited festival of food and funk will feature free musical performances by world-renowned Latin jazz legend Poncho Sanchez, rockin’ blues harmonica virtuoso Jason Ricci, Beatles tribute band Anthology, and soulful island diva Marijah and the Reggae All-Stars.

Throughout the weekend, a South Florida feast of fresh clams, oysters, shrimp, fish, lobster, conch and crab cakes will be served up along the Broadwalk, as local restaurants offer their hottest seafood recipes and coolest drink concoctions for hungry revelers.

Nonstop live music on multiple stages will include Grammy-winning Latin jazz maestro Poncho Sanchez (Saturday, October 17, 7 p.m.), Marijah & the Reggae All-Stars (Friday, October 16, 7 p.m.), and high-energy blues-rocker Jason Ricci & New Blood (Sunday, October 18, 7 p.m.) headlining the Hollywood Beach Bandshell (dubbed the Clamshell during the event).
