It’s a lovely June in Branson! We hope you’re enjoying your stay here, or if you haven’t yet headed to Branson, we wish you safe travels and look forward to your arrival! For this week - #14 - of our series, we’d like to share four incredible shows with you. These are resident shows with extended schedules throughout the year, so if you’re not in town for the coming week, you can nab some great seats during your next visit.
In this weekly series, we talk about shows, attractions, activities, and more - everything we’re sure you’ll love about Branson...check us out every Sunday to see what we’re lovin’ lately!
Here, in alphabetical order, is What We Love in Branson This Week:
Beach Boys California Dreamin’: An incredible show that brings back the early magic of the Beach Boys, as well as the music of other 60s and 70s hit-making acts.
3 Reasons Why We Love Beach Boys California Dreamin’
1. One of a kind! The 60s birthed a phenomenal list of hot groups, but only one put the beach into rock music and gave us a new sound that makes the Beach Boys feel just as fresh today as when we first heard them!
2. Unforgettable songs! We’re betting that just hearing these titles will have itching to get up and dance - “I Get Around,” “California Girls,” “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “Surfin’ USA,” “Little Deuce Coupe,” “Help Me Rhonda,” and so many more.
3. Beyond Beach Boys! You’ll enjoy the hits of other hot acts of the era, including folk rock favorites like The Mamas and The Papas and Simon & Garfunkel.
Schedule this week: Tuesday, June 12 & Thursday, June 14 at 10:00 a.m. and Wednesday, June 13 at 5:00 p.m.
Location: Hamners’ Variety Theatre
Buckets N Boards: It just might be Branson’s most unusual show, thanks to the musical talent, comedy hijinks, and percussion mastery of co-creators and co-stars, Matt Levingston and Gareth Sever.
3 Reasons Why We Love Buckets N Boards
1. Belly-achin’ laughter! If laugh-out-loud antics sound like your kind of fun, then we’ve found your show! Silly songs are just the beginning of a long list of ways these guys will keep you laughing!
2. Non-stop energy! You’ll be marveling at the way they use everyday things as percussion instruments, from buckets to boards, barrels to ladders, and everything in-between and beyond -- Gareth and Matt make music and laughter out of drumming on things like nobody’s business!
3. Fun for the family! Branson is famous for family gatherings, so finding just the right shows to entertain folks from 3 to 103 is important - Buckets N Board fills the bill to a capital “T”...and that’s a “T” for terrific fun for all!
Schedule this week: Wednesday, June 13 & Friday, June 15 at 7:30 p.m. and Thursday, June 14 at 2:00 p.m.
Location: Starlite Theatre
Mike Walker Lasting Impressions: Just as the name implies, Walker will leave an impression on everyone who witnesses his tributes to great living artists, as well as his ability to channel those treasured acts who left us far too soon.
3 Reasons Why We Love Mike Walker Lasting Impressions
1. Spot-on impersonations! The word “tribute” seems to have taken over as a way to describe such artists, but when Mike Walker dives into a tribute with such perfection, he becomes the honored artist in a way that makes you believe he could impersonate someone and pass any test with flying colors!
2. Impressive resume! He’s toured with, or shared the stage, with some of music’s greatest, including Alabama, Toby Keith, Mickey Gilley, Keith Urban, and so many other big names.
3. Magnetic stage presence! Whether he’s honoring a legend like Willie Nelson, or delivering the unforgettable music of the late, great Ray Charles, Mike Walker’s command of the Branson stage keeps everyone in the audience riveted and hoping the show never ends!
Schedule this week: Tuesday, June 12 and Thursday, June 14 at 2:00 p.m.
Location: Hamners’ Variety Theater
Pierce Arrow: One of Branson’s longest running shows, it’s also one of its most popular, delivering a red hot show season after season!
3 Reasons Why We Love Pierce Arrow
1. Branson legacy! Pierce Arrow has entertained millions of Branson guests over the years, producing a quality show packed with great country music and laugh-until-you-cry comedy!
2. Funny, funny, funny! The comedian in a Pierce Arrow show has always been showcased, and that’s no exception with current resident funny man, James Sibley. With a television writing and/or performance resume that includes Gilmore Girls, My Name is Earl, and the legendary Saturday Night Live, Sibley owns the credentials necessary to be considered one of Branson’s best comedians!
3. A phenomenal quartet! Loyal fans of Pierce Arrow can always count on sensational singing - bass singer and show producer, Dan Britton, surrounds himself with the best vocalists available to share the best country music ever made!
Schedule this week: Monday, June 11 - Wednesday, June 13 - Friday, June 15 at 8:00 p.m. and Tuesday, June 12 - Thursday, June 14 - Saturday, June 16 at 3:00 p.m.
