I went to Branson with my God Momma who asked me to get the tickets. I had little knowledge of their show, but man, they can perform! They put on a show like none other and I have talked with other performers who partner and give a discount off their show with a receipt...I can hardly wait to come back next year!!!

"Missed it 3 times!"
June, 2018
Drove past the theater 3 times & never saw the sign. Went to Sonic to get drinks & she told us where they were. I had been to Baldknobbers in the Baldknobber theater & the show was much better there. Still good clean jokes, humor & songs. Loved it!

"The Baldknobbers Jamboree Show"
June, 2018
We have been to the Baldknobbers Jamboree Show twice (once during thanksgiving break and once during the summer). In my opinion, the Christmas show was much better. When we went this summer, they had just moved to a new theater a month prior and I think they were still trying to figure out the stage lighting and sound. They still did an outstanding job even my 7yr old daughter enjoyed it.

Great show, with very talented singers and musicians. Very good music choices that highlights the talent of each person in the show. Comedy is very good without being dumb. I would recommend this show to be added to your Branson must see.

Saw this show 3 years ago and loved it so much we decided to go again; big mistake. Comedians were ok but not nearly as good as before. Singing ok except wife of main singer was excellent. We left after intermission. Sad to see such a wonderful show take such a nosedive.

Reviewed November 20, 2018 NEW
After they moved we saw this show after years-of skipping it went it was on the strip. We always wanted to see it but we never did! This visit though left us wondering why all the hype! It was interesting to the people around us who knew the artists of the songs highlighted but the remakes by people who “sound like” did much better jobs then these singers...We left before it was over. Didn’t see it advertised this year while in town!

Let me share a story! I booked the Baldknobbers because they were supposed to be located across from our hotel. They moved! No problem. I expected the old style show with older performers like the days of old. WOW! I think they need to market themselves differently! This was an awesome show! Fabulous entertainers. Then add in a little of the old time humor with two comedians! I thought I may wet my pants laughing. We saw the Baldknobbers many years ago, but these are the Baldknobbers of 2018! New, refreshing, talented. I encourage all readers to take a chance and attend. I know you will love them
