Saint Louis, Missouri
If you've seen Jim's show before, then you know what to expect. He is a very funny man and extremely talented musician. He was gone for the past couple of years, and I think it will take time before he can regain the popularity he experienced before his absence. Stick with it Jim, it will take a while before every one of your followers realize you're BACK! I miss his talented kids being in the show, and sincerely hope they will come back to join him. His son, Shea and daughter, GG are sorely missed. It added so much to his show. But with or without the kids, Jim is a piece or work! He can put a joke across like no other, and his classical renditions on the guitar, as well as the old standards are done in such a way that you just wish the show would go on and on. Don't miss it while in Branson!
I grew up a hard rocker but my wife and I really enjoy the show. Jim tells good stories and jokes and is an amazing guitar player as well. Just down the street from the titanic on the left. Careful looking for the correct driveway, you might pull into the tee shirt shop on the left and cannot cross over. If you park down the hill, they have a golf cart that can take you to the front door if you feel the hill is a hard climb. About 2 hours long with a 15 minute break in between. Snack shop and items to purchase inside. I live in the area and have seen many shows, this is one of the best along with the Beatles show.
Jim Stafford was gone for awhile,but his theater is very nice and he is very entertaining. His songs were good and his jokes were funny, but not stupid. It was disappointing that the crowd wasn't very large. I believe this is because people have might of forgotten just who Jim is. He now has 2 brothers entertaining with him. They're called "Brother Brothers" & boy can they sing and play those instruments. Their are not a lot of young people playing banjo these days,but I could listen to these 2 for hours. Give the show a try. Comfy seats also.
A true showman! Jim Stafford is the whole package! Singer / songwriter, guitarist, and hilarious comedian! He's still got it!
