When talking about the tradition of music in Branson, it won't take long before the Branson Baldknobbers Show will enter the conversation. Not only did the entertainment start with them, the tradition continues and is still going strong.
For 2017, the Baldknobbers Show moved into the Branson Theater. As my family and I entered we were greeted by a very neat facility, as well as, an extremely friendly staff. The theater was equipped with a nice concession stand, as well as, a gift shop with some unique items in it. My boys loved their gift shop! They were by far the most reasonably priced gift shop that we found in Branson. The kids loved the concessions at intermission.
The Baldknobbers Show
As the show began, third generation Brandon Mabe took the lead of what would be nearly 2 hours of phenomenal music and laugh until you cry comedy. His vocals along with the rest of the group provided a night of great classic country, patriotic, and gospel music. As much as could be said for the vocals provided by multiple singers, the musicians were equally as impressive. Lead by band leader Nathan (who was a pro on multiple instruments) they were electric all night. It always helps when you have the reigning Branson drummer and bassist of the year! Not to mention one of the best piano players I have ever heard!
Clean, Family Friendly Comedy
In between sets, the audience was entertained by their comedians. Everyone in our family from our children to my husband and I were in tears. Their back and forth and impressions were absolutely hilarious! Considering that we were accompanied by our three children, we could not have been pleased with the family friendliness of this show. There certainly was something for everyone in the show yet in a very clean and appropriate presentation. It is easy to see why the Baldknobbers Show has been so successful these last 58 years! With the talent taking the stage each night, I am sure they will be entertaining audiences in Branson for many years to come!
