Spanish singing star Noelia Zanon is joining our sizzling lineup of performers for VoteFest08 – sponsored by the Miami-Dade Democratic Party to promote early voting on Sunday, Oct. 26.

Registered voters from anywhere in Miami-Dade County are invited to the North Shore Bandshell on Miami Beach. Music starts at 12 noon on Oct. 26 in the Art Deco bandshell on Collins Avenue at 73rd Street. Two blocks away is the early voting site at the North Shore Library, and teen-corps volunteers will be on hand to escort people to the polling place.

The sensational Noelia Zanon has been touring in the United States to stir up Hispanic voters for the Democrats -- most recently in Georgia. Putting the Miami Beach event on her schedule is a tremendous addition to the already big lineup of local talent -- unprecedented in recent Miami memory.

Also new on the performing roster is a terrific gospel group, The Spencerairs. Among the other live acts will be DJ Le Spam, Guajiro, Miami folk musician Jesse Jackson, bluesman Albert Castiglia and his band, Here II Here, Marivana, The Gardis, Miami Rock Ensemble, Javier Garcia, Maguinha, Tereso, Urban Fruit and We Live in Houses.

Early voting on Sunday, Oct. 26 begins at 1 p.m. and ends at 5 p.m. The music starts at noon and continues until 8 p.m. For more information, check the Facebook event site or the new website
