Awesome show. We all loved the blend of comedy and music in the show. The vocal artists were truly amazing gifted singers. My 8 and 10 year old grandson's laughed and sang along. After the show the whole group are out front signing autographs. Best show ever

"Not worth your time or money"
December, 2016
Very good: acknowledgement of armed services and specific song to each. Good: Comedy guys. Band. Ladies costumes (guys too), tall thin male singer, tall built male singer, male emcee was personable and voice was okay, dark curly haired lady could carry a solo. Not good: Solo by mother, Solo by wife ( don't try to pull off a Dolly song if you can't come close to hitting key pieces). We were told by other tourists NOT to go to this show but we thought we would try it. This show needs a talent overhaul by 70% to remain competitive.

Tip: For the price, all the other acts we saw were far better and for about $2 to $12 more

"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.

'What a show!' - an understatement! Excellent female and male vocalists perform country music hits from this century. The band includes very talented award winning musicians who left us wanting to hear more. The comedians had fresh routines that are family friendly in Branson style. Nice veterans tribute! Will definitely return with friends and family.

This is a must see show. For the show that started it all in Branson, they have out done therm selves again. The music is Great, the comedy is terrific, . The band which won band of the year last year is even better. The singers do a wonderful job. The pre-show is very good as usual. Bob has been in Branson for a very long time and is still going strong.

Reviewed April 18, 2018 NEW
The musicians are excellent, the whole show was high-energy and they have a wonderful female vocalist along with an already high quality group of musicians and singers. Most of the cast are or have been famous performers in their own right. The comedy section is great. The show went way too fast - I could have been there for hours longer and not tired.
