Fall 2019 - August 28, 2019

I know it's been a while since I posted my schedule but, there were many scheduling conflicts with our group of entertainers,that, each week for us was different. It would have not been fair to expect everyone to rearrange they're life so they could come out to see us. At least, that's the way I feel about it. As of right now, Traditions on the Beach is closed until Sept. 23rd. Scheduling has not been set, as of now. Please keep checking my site or the one for Traditions for our new line-up.  I "will" strive to keep you up to date as to my schedule. Thanks again.
