HOLD THE PHONE!!!
It appears that this year’s Beachcomber Days event is BACK ON after having been declared dead earlier in the day. A spokesman for Beachcomber Days said cooler heads prevailed and after some back and forth and other negotiations with music licensing companies BMI and ASCAP, the cost of running music during Beachcomber Days was lowered to something manageable. So everything looks to be heading “back to normal.”
A final vote to move ahead with it again this year will be made by the Beachcomber Days Board within a couple of weeks.
