There are a lot of unusual performers out there, one episode of America’s Got Talent is certainly proof of that, but as far as we know, when it comes to being uniquely unusual, Janice Martin wears the crown in Branson! She can sing like a bird and fly like a...well, she can also fly like a bird - and she doesn’t seem content to display just one of her exceptional talents at a time, she’s a master at combining skills as easily as most of us stroll down the street. One of the coolest things to

Branson’s only show with both a family-friendly version and one aimed at an adult audience, is delivered by the hilarious master of laughter and hypnosis, Austin Singley! This town offers dozens of shows - a wide variety of live entertainment that makes it easy for everyone to find something that makes them happy, but there’s nothing in Branson that folks enjoy more than laughing themselves silly, and satisfying silliness abounds during Comedy Hypnosis with Austin Singley!

The Duttons are still wowing audiences around the world after more than 30 years of incredible shows! The popular performers can be seen in any number of cities while on tour, as well as in their winter-time show venue in Mesa, Arizona, but those of us “in the know” understand that the very best place to catch this super-talented family singing, dancing, playing, and making us laugh until we cry, is in America’s capital of live entertainment, the one-and-only Branson, Missouri!
The most special of events in Branson is fast approaching...sure, it’s still August, but it’ll be November before we know it! There’s something that happens in November that’s even more highly anticipated than the early start date of Branson’s Christmas season, and that’s the annual celebration where we pull out all the stops to showcase the weeklong Branson Veterans Homecoming 2019! No destination loves a celebration more than Branson, and there are so many incredible events, festivals, and

There’s no place in Branson, Missouri that can give you the greatest of grand ol’ times quite like the live entertainment lineup at Grand Country! With eight different shows, there’s sure to be one that appeals to everyone in your family. Country music? Of course! Pop and classic rock favorites? Sure! What about funny stuff? Packed to the rafters! Heck, there’s even a show where the stars have four legs...the furry kind. You’ll find all this fantastic live entertainment and more inside the
The prettiest time of year is fast approaching, and Branson offers its own special presentation of autumn. Of course, every season in Branson brings its own kind of beauty, and we ought to know, cause there are five of them! That’s right, only here will you find one holiday celebrated to such an extent that it’s become its own season, and that’s Christmas - in Branson, it begins on November 1 and runs through December 31...but more on that glorious time of year in another post!

A lot of magic happens in Branson every day, and some of the best magic takes place every time the phenomenal Reza takes the stage! Easily one of the most popular shows around, it's pure joy for every member of the audience each time he takes the stage, conjuring awe and wonder with each trick no matter how big or small. And it isn’t just the magic that captivates his guests, Reza is charming, inventive, and downright funny!

There’s nothing quite as visually stunning, electrifying, and a downright joy to witness as Branson’s Amazing Acrobats of Shanghai, yet, at the same time, it's a show that repeatedly puts you at the edge-of-your-seat, biting your nails, and occasionally covering your eyes for fear something, or worse, someone is going to take a terrible tumble!

C.J. Newsom’s delightful show, Classic Country & Comedy, goes beyond the title to offer a song list with a little something extra, including the music of Patsy Cline, one of the first female artists whose hit songs easily defied genre labels, appealing to music fans from all walks of life. And no live music headliner could ask for a better comedic sidekick; Newsom shares the stage with non other than Terry Sanders, the long-time funnyman who could easily own the moniker of Branson’s Lord of

In March, we posted a helpful list of all the big name acts visiting Branson this year - here, we’re not only reminding you of the concerts yet to come, we’ve added announcements of even more big names coming this way...yep, we’re so jazzed we can barely wait! Branson is already bursting at the theater seams with more phenomenal shows than you’ll find in any other destination, so these one-night-only concerts and limited engagement appearances are like the tastiest icing on the “gotta see it”
Branson’s world-famous, multi-award-winning theme park, Silver Dollar City, just made its “biggest announcement ever,” according to president, Brad Thomas...Branson’s top entertainment draw is undergoing a major park expansion, highlighted by Mystic River Falls, a ginormous water raft ride! The park expansion, known as the Rivertown project, will rise from the area of the park where the 80s-era water ride, Lost River of the Ozarks, once called home. By 2020, guests will be able to experience

The timeless music of our favorite British imports can be found alive and well in Branson! It’s been 50 years since the Beatles went their separate ways, but not before they made such a substantial impression on the music industry, in the few short years they shared as a group, that they’re still regarded as the most influential rock band the world has ever seen.
A classic has returned to Branson, the light-hearted, laughable, and lovably loony production of The Toby Show! Once a staple on small town stages and in traveling tents across the country, this homespun vaudeville-style show is the definition of family-friendly, making it a picture perfect fit for Branson’s live entertainment community. The plot is simple, but effective, and centers around “Toby,” the quintessential country lad who gets the better of a slick city character.

Branson is filled with incredible music, but one genre is practically owned by a single artist, and you’ll agree once you hear George Dyer deliver the aria from the opera Turandot, “Nessun Dorma” - pure music magic! Even guests who think they’re not an opera fan can’t help but get goosebumps when Dyer belts out a popular aria, but it’s not just opera - most of his unforgettable show is spent delivering hits that range from pop to the best of Broadway.
It’s August and many of us are thinking about a “last hurrah” getaway before the kids head back to school... there’s no better place for a getaway than Branson! Everything you love about summer is still going strong - boating, skiing, cruising, paddleboarding, enjoying the Showboat Branson Belle, and zipping around on personal watercraft are all incredible way to have fun when the weather is toasty and the deep waters of gorgeous Table Rock Lake are refreshingly cool, not to mention the famousl

There’s real family chemistry of magical proportions taking place in the capital of live entertainment every time The Johnson Strings take the Branson stage! You know, there’s something truly special about a family that does things together, but this big family takes that concept up a few notches when every single one of them takes the stage...most families feel fortunate to have one child who’s musically gifted, can you imagine the pride that mom and dad Johnson have in all six - that’s right,

The Motown Downtown Tribute brought live entertainment to Branson’s charming downtown several years ago, and it remains the headlining show at the Hot Hits Theatre, the only live music theater found in the popular district. To be fair, there’s an incredible and legendary little theatre right across the street, the Owen Theatre, but that venue is now being successfully operated by the local arts council, and they’re hosting their own productions of popular plays and musicals. But when it comes
