Having performed in History Channel and A&E movies, our mission is to preserve history, teach and entertain communities about the founding of this great country and provide a visual of the day to day lifestyle of our fore-fathers......The trials and tribulations that were encountered from 1550 - 1700.
Brothers of the Coasts falls within the Florida history time line from the the discovery of St. Augustine by Pedro Menendez de Aviles up to the Civil War.
Our interpretation of the Golden Age of Pirates is not based on any specific historical event. It is meant to provide a loose interpretation of the romantic side of the pirate trade as uncovered from studies of specific Pirate Captains who sailed the U.S. Atlantic coast.
We cover the time periods of 1586 Sir Francis
Drake's Raid (40 ships) of St. Augustine, 1668 Robert Searle's
Raid (3 ships) of St. Augustine (both historical re-enactments)
and Golden Age
of Pirates (Pirates of the Caribbean) for all non historical events.
