Baldknobbers Jamboree Show – ‘The Show That Started It All’ has been performing in Branson for over 50 years!

The Branson family entertainment phenomenon began over 50 years ago in 1959 when the four Mabe brothers, known as the Baldknobbers, began entertaining visitors on the Branson lakefront.

Today, the family legacy continues to wow audiences by delivering everything from traditional country to today’s #1 hits and lots of side-splitting comedy. Now, the 2nd & 3rd generations of the Mabe family carry on the family tradition of performing an all new show each year. Both longtime Baldknobbers’ fans and new fans alike appreciate the Baldknobbers’ family traditions that have made this show popular from generation to generation.

In 2011, the Baldknobbers original costumes, instruments and artifacts were added to the permanent collection of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. Don’t miss the show that started it all in Branson, the Baldknobbers.

Today, over fifty years later, the second and third generations of the Mabe family continue the family tradition of combining your favorite country classics, with hot-new country hits and hilarious comedy into a fast paced, high energy show.

The Baldknobbers Jamboree Show—“The Show That Started It All” —is located on the famed 76 Country Music Boulevard in Branson, Missouri, with performances Monday through Saturday at 8:00pm.

"Baldknobber Show through Reserve Branson"
July, 2016
We reserved our tickets a couple weeks prior to arriving in Branson. So, I didn't think our seats would be very good. After seeing the auditorium, I don't believe there is a bad seat in the house. Our seats were on the aisle and 10 rows from the stage. Great seats through Reserve Branson. I enjoyed the preshow as much as I did the main show, possibly even more. The comedians were great. I didn't realize it was a family show, Mother, Father, Son, Wife, Cousins, etc. They were all very good. The songs were ones that I have heard before, but some were not. It was a very enjoyable evening for my wife and I.
Tip: The Baldknobber Buffet was Closed. We had planned on eating there but ended up eating at Montana Mikes just down the road. We are thinking about going back to Branson for the Christmas show.

Other folks have commented on the exterior of the building. It looked fine to us. However, we agree the interior (floor and seats) need some attention, without question. The costumes, singing, dancing, and comedians were fine, but we were expecting a larger group to perform. There were 3 main female singers and 2 male singers with 2 comedians. Mother (singer), father (comedian)son (emcee), daughter-in-law (singer), and cousin (band director) of Mabes family perform. While the show was fine, I didn't get the feel of high energy, loving what I am doing kind of vibe. Personally, we enjoyed the Pierce Arrow performance more than the Baldknobbers. Staging and set design of Baldknobbers was better, but the performance of Pierce Arrow as a whole was more high energy.

Show has been around for a lot of years, but was very funny and engaging. They keep it fresh and current. Loved all the costume changes, impressive band. The only bad thing were the seats, not at all comfortable.

Loved this show! My parents had both been to this when they were in their first few years of marriage, I finally got to go see what all the fuss was about .... it was so much stinkin fun! Great country and patriotic song selections mixed with wonderful musicians and terrific singers. Loved the chemistry, comedy, and the family feel. I got to giggling so bad it was embarrassing but I loved every minute of it!
