Live Shows

Nothing motivates intense preparation like the spontaneity and uncertainty of live performance. A foundation in the live-show business has nurtured a detail-oriented work-ethic and a "show must go on" attitude.

In 1986, Tad formed his production company and wrote, produced, directed, and performed his first major western theatrical production, "The Texas Sesquicentennial Celebration" at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. This production was soon followed by a live concert production for the Charlie Daniels' Band. For this, Tad coordinated and directed an arena show to accompany the stage concert as a two hour live music video. 

 

Tad has also had a career in Dinner Theater Production Shows, performing for a year when he was ten with his family in Mexico City at the unique equestrian Mission del Campanario, two years performing in The Kingdom of Dancing Stallions in Buena Park, CA., and most recently, completing over seven thousand performances in eight years at the Excalibur Hotel and Casino's "King Arthur's Tournament Dinner Show".

 

Introducing trick riding to the Las Vegas strip, Tad and his mother, Connie, performed at the Excalibur Hotel for 8 years. The show, King Arthur’s Tournament, featured Riders of the North Country, a trio of trick riders which became one of the highlights of the show. Connie performed for 6 straight years in more than 6,000 consecutive performances, many times while maintaining bruised and broken bones.

 

With the rise of the 4th Generation Griffiths came several appearances in large rodeos around the country as well as a spot on America's Got Talent in 2015.
