"AMAZING!!!"
July, 2018
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.

March, 2018
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

Did not enjoy this show at all. Musicians were good as were male vocalists but the show was slow moving and lacked energy. Would not see again.

Unbelievably fantastic mix of old and new gospel songs. These entertainers were born to sing gospel with such strong voices and truly from the heart believing what they sing. Having special guest star Lulu Roman was a bonus. So happy for them they started this entertainment in their theatre.
